Tara, a traditional boat on the Hout Bay Marina

Tara was for many years a regular attender of the TBA regattas, the first one she sailed over from Gordons Bay to do the V&A Waterfront Easter Regatta.

I think Tara may be a Hollman and Pye design, can anyone confirm?

Long and elegant, yawl  rigged an unusual boat for today. Certainally a very wet boat when the wind and waves get up!

Later sold to a dentist who changed the name to Squire, then resold and is now renamed Tara, which I think is a better name.

I am told that the owner would like to keep Tara at the HBYC marina, I hope he can.

Note the tiny British Seagull outboard, I need the engine number to check what model and date its from.
