THETIS – Shed Visit
The 45’ classic launch – Thetis, built / launched in 1955 by Lanes is currently tucked up in a shed in Opua getting serious TCL.
One of the better looking big classic, she always looks fast even when at anchor.

The Classic Yachting World Has Gone Doolally
Reading the latest issue of ClassicBoat magazine, I see they are reporting that glassfibre classics will soon be seen on the Mediterranean classic yacht racing circuit.
The CIM (Comite International de la Mediterranee du Yachting Classique) have made the call to accept glassfibre classics on the racecourse. Refer below extract from CB for more details.
Given the size of the yacht fleets turning up for NZ Classic Yacht Association races these days, they will be following suit and probably let 8Y8’s into the fold 🙂
RSVP – boat name and approx crew # to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thetis looked at her during our time spent in the opua marina in the new year hiding from the weather as only being newbies to the boating world if I was to do an upgrade this beauty would be on the top of my list
