Historic Sydney Harbour 30 foot class yacht Hoana was badly damaged in Athol Bight on 27 January 2012 by an overtaking timber motor cruiser.
Hoana, a gaff rigged centreboard sloop was built here circa 1933 by Hayes of kauri on spotted gum ribs.
She is best known for circumnavigating the globe (incl Cape Horn) post WW2 with Bob Adams (of Adams X fame) at the tiller.
Owned by Martin van der Waal since 1987 she has an enviable race record with Sydney Amateur Sailing Club, the hub of timber boat activities in the state.
Best wishes for her recovery!
