Tebor- Sailing Sunday

TEBOR – Sailing Sunday
photos & questions ex Russell Ward

A little while ago on ww we posted up the motor-sailer Korara which generated a huge amount of interest, comments even from the Channel Islands.
Russell mentioned on ww at the time that John Gladden built a Francis Jones? Sole Bay design in the early 1970s. The photos above of the vessel Tebor hauled out at Westhaven could be the Gladden built vessel. Can anyone confirm this & supply more info on her & the origin of the name – Tebor.

She has a near sister-ship at Bayswater, Tara-Nui (photo below). Tara-Nui is owned by a friend of mine, Richard Poor, & has been the recipient of my fine sanding / Uroxsys skills.  Unfortunately Tara-Nui is now lacking the original varnish on the wheelhouse. Richard is not a big fan of the cold, so is currently basking in the sun in New Caledonia aboard Tara-Nui.

A Little Classic Yacht Sailing Eye Candy

Seeing its Sunday I have also posted below a little treat – click the link to view the ‘Classic TV’ feature on the recently restored 1915 Herreshoff 48′ NY Class – Chinook’. The brief film gives you a chance to experience a race aboard during the Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge in Cannes.

  2. That Cannes racing video brings back some fine memories. It’s worth sharing that if you are travelling during a Mediterranean summer you can get yourself out there racing on a big classic for the day or the week, without too much hassle. Just walk the dock, contact the organisers, or else buy a round of drinks for a captain or one of the many young Kiwis crewing on these boats. The big regattas are found here http://www.paneraiclassicyachtschallenge.com/en/pcyc/mediterranean-circuit-regulations#/organization. There are a number of others (St Tropez, Cowes, Monaco, Porto Cervo) and even some more low key ones elsewhere (Imperia, Glandore, Barcelona, Palma) if you prefer beer to champagne.
