2269 - Sailing Again

The restoration of the Farr Half Tonner 2 Farr (the ex-2269 from the 1977 Half Ton Cup series, and sistership to Gunboat Rangiriri and Swuzzlebubble), has recently been completed and she was re-launched in early October.

The restoration of 2 Farr has been a long project for her Australian owner Will Baum, who saved the yacht after she was wrecked on a Melbourne beach.

2 Farr had her first sail a few days ago (the 'G' on the sail denotes the Royal Geelong Yacht Club).

The history of the yacht can be seen here.
