The Yacht’s Story (from Pat Clarke)
I understand the yacht was built in 1983 by Swarbricks’ and went north to Geraldton, before being trucked to Adelaide in 1989. Morning Star has a Mark 11 keel and rudder but with a short rig and a 3GM30 Yanmar (installed 1993) sits under the cockpit. Tim Taylor purchased Morning Star in 2001 from North Haven South Australia. She was sold to me in 2007.
From Jo Breen, 2016:
Planning to use for cruising Tasmania, club racing, and dreaming of doing the Melbourne to Osaka in 2018 (Hoping to get some advice on this from members who race their S&S 34’s!).
