The story of the TBA, by Colin Davies

The Traditional Boat Association, or as we normally call it, just the TBA, has come and gone. My place is not to suggest why but to tell you of a fine new publiction on the history of the TBA which we founded here in Cape Town in 1991.

This is a photograph of Colins proof copy front cover.

Colins story is packed with pictures of the cartoons and people that made the newsletters so popular.

The book is as much about people as their boats, there are pages and pages of interesting interviews and reviews.

Colin Davies, the author of the book. Colin knows lots about our yachts and also lots about sailing, as he single handed his steel Dix Design Hout Bay 33 named Solvesta  around the world!

At this time some 100 copies only are being placed on order, I believe they will be numbered and signed, any second run will not be.  Please contact me soonest to reserve your copy.
