The Yacht’s Story
Fred and Audrey Green had Coorong built in 1977, the contract date being 24/5/77 for hull no 42. They subsequently cruised extensively, circumnavigating both the world and Australia. Audrey was the first woman to do this double. Coorong was bought in late 2007 by Colin Alleck and renamed Bullant Rouge. A refurbishment was planned to commence later in 2008.

This is just a shot in the dark but, I hope you remember me……………….your old skiing buddy & school time friend of Aliza Bloom. I escaped to Wagga Wagga to do my teaching degree. Might seem strange me, contacting you but, I mentioned your name recently to my sons and now I find myself very curious about you. You were a great friend and if you have some time I would love to hear from you.
