The Yacht’s Story
Lost and Found – Spotted by John McCormack (Morning Bird) in Refuge Bay
We had just spent the weekend in the Hawkesbury and were in Refuge for a swim and shower under the waterfall and I saw a red S&S34 on the other side of the bay. We motored past on the way out and didn’t see anybody on board. I would have called out if I had realized she was a Search and Rescue.
She is red topsides with a white or light colored deck, in boom reefing, a furler and a fawn dodger. She is the same 4 porthole model as Morning Bird (1984/85??) and looks to be in very good condition. I suspect she is based somewhere in Pittwater or the Hawkesbury to be in Refuge Bay on a Sunday afternoon.
From our records, it seems that Sinclair Hutton bought Bob Sampson’s Terian (hull 40) and renamed her Syzygy, but later sold her and built a new Mk 2 boat which he named Syzygy. The boat referred to could be the original Terian, as the hull is said to be red.
