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.
