October, from Facebook "What can i say
about this little 30 ft 1/2 tonner IOR boat called Glenshiel 12 but formerly
known as Mulberry. She was designed by the legendary Aussie designer Ron Swanson
specifically for the Sandringham yacht club back around 1973-74. This boat
the last of 6 built. She might be humble in many ways but her record speaks
for itself. She competed in 6 Sydney to Hobarts, 6 Melbourne to Devonport
races, let alone a bunch of other offshore races, has circumnavigated Tassie
let alone sailed from Tassie to Opua (NZ) and back, a round trip of close
to 5000nm. Let alone plenty of other trips across Bass st, local cruising
and these days still completing in daytime multi club races on the Derwent.
Having spent a lot of time slowly restoring
what i can for the owner, i really have come to admire this trusty little
boat. I enjoy racing on her and even winning on handicap a number of races.
Hope you like her story and the pictures."
