The Yacht’s Story
She was said to be sold to John Heydon in late 1980/early 81. We later have Carl Warner who we think sailed her east and owned her from ? until 2002, when she was sold to Peter Apps who moored her at Lane Cove River. A handwritten note on the original Swarbrick Yacht register refers to “Mourning Swan”, confirmed by Peter Watson in 2015. Lawrie Davidson says she raced in the 1984 Sydney-Hobart being one of only 46 finishers from 152 starters.
