The TBA in Grainger Bay

This was a  special event, Grainger Bay and before its Water Club changes, was to host the Traditional Boat Asscociation for an event. We were made very welcome and soon found decent berths in the rather tight harbour.

Yacht Halloween in the front was an Arthur Rob design, a yacht well known to the RCYC but by this time was owned by the Stremple Brothers. I supplied much of the boats timbers they were requiring, oregon Pine and teak mainly.

My own yacht, Ocean Cloud (ex Gulliver of Knysna) is in the background with the maroon transom and side stripes. I think I am tied alongside Moonchild?
