Always the boat to beat in fishing boat regattas.
She had some eleven owners before ending up as a houseboat on the Port River Adelaide.
Found by Tim Phillips and restored in 1980: new deck, case, ribs.
Sailed for many years by Marcus Burke, founding President and Honorary Life Member of the CBC.
Sold in 1994 to the Calvert-Jones family.
Purchased from Mark Calvert-Jones and sailed to Flinders in January 2004.
In recent times Wattle has raced at Pittwater and Sorrento.
Not much to say.
