TE UIRA RELAUNCHED
Ian Smith from the Sydney Wooden Boat School has just aired a new video he shot during the recent Aust Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart. Its titled ‘Around the Boatyards Ep2’ – and focuses the Cygnet Wooden Boat yard and we get a great overview of the recently relaunched 1896 C&W Bailey (NZ) built 45’ yacht Te Uira.
Also an overview of other CWB projects recently completed or underway. Enjoy.
Special thanks to Andrew Christie for the heads up on the video

A beautiful restoration. But the Aussie commentator needs a lesson in Te Reo. The ‘ui’ in Uira is pronounced like hui (without the ‘h’) ui ra. Translation: Lightning
Te Uira is beautifully restored. Well done the, Cygnet Wooden Boat team.
