Bat­tle of old-timers

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

TWO old timers will do bat­tle in Ho­bart on Mon­day.

The two-boat race, start­ing at 12.30pm, is be­tween two 44-foot­ers (13.4m) Spark­man Stephens de­sign Huon pine rac­ing boats, Land­fall, built at Bat­tery Point in 1935 and now owned by Mike Strong of Syd­ney, and Sirocco, built in 1939 also at Bat­tery Point and owned by John Mack­in­tosh.

Or­gan­is­ers of the Der­went Gift want as many clas­sic yachts and mo­tor boats as pos­si­ble in the spec­ta­tor fleet.
