MANA

Back in late February, David Cooke sent me the above photos which were sent to him by Ken McGill.
I’m not sure of the location, possibly Mana ?
Can anyone ID the yacht?
Input from Jason Prew – It’s the Col Wild built and designed Mana with the (in)famous Sam McGill looking after this haul out.
And at the other end of the scale – some eye candy below – the 1934, 30-Square Metre, 43’ yacht – Tre Sang, seen here leaving the Robbe & Berking, Flensburg Germany, shipyard.

  3. A little beauty! But I don’t know who/what she is.
    “Tre Sang” was just post WWII owned by “Blondie” Hasler, who (would you believe?!) went ocean racing in her. Hasler was the man who originated single-handed ocean racing, and was one of the “cockleshell heroes”; commamdos who mounted a raid on German shipping in the river Gironde in folding kayaks!
