Whyte, Just and Moore Wooden Boat Festival was held at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club during Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th March 2012.
The ideal weather and the perfect setting, assisted by a cast of thousands and a small group of dedicated volunteers certainly made this year’s Whyte, Just and Moore Wooden Boat Festival of Geelong a smash hit! A larger than expected fleet of wooden boats arriving at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club during the Labour Day weekend gave the public a mind boggling weekend over the two day festival, which started with the arrival of absolute classic yachts over the finishing line in the Classic and Modern Wooden Boat Passage Race. With well in excess of one hundred craft on display, it was no wonder that the sleek greyhounds of the sea were like magnets to the general public!
If anyone wanted a better picture that that of the twenty three classic wooden boats lining up for the ‘4 Winds Marine’ Classic Boat Trophy race, they’d have to search the world. The stately lady, ‘Sayonara’, said goodbye in Japanese to the fleet by leading for most of the race and taking out line honours. She, ‘Lupa Wylo’ (not Lilliane!) has beautiful bronze winches, traditional timber turning blocks and an Oregon mast and boom with stainless steel rigging. Wooden boats came in all sorts of shapes and sizes and the two steam boats choof-choofed around the marina to the toot of their steam hooters! The other ‘Tea Urn’ (which actually had an urn beside the boiler!) was the steam driven ‘Osborne’. Many power boats were part of the ‘Navigation Rally’ which was won by ’Cadora’ owned by Chris Ackerman, Rear Commodore of RVMYC in Williamstown. Herons are the type of yacht that many of us ‘grew up’ with and Ralph Brown’s Heron, ‘Sarie’ was the victor in the Heron series taking out the ‘Norglass’ Trophy.
The standard was so high that it was decided to award an ‘honourable mention’ to a beautifully presented, 1971 15ft. The overall winner of the ‘Concours d’elegance’ is unquestionably a rare and real ‘Classic’. Designed by Norm Dallimore, ‘Windward II’ was built by Percy Coverdale in Hobart in 1929 using the finest Australian timbers, King Billy pine on Blue Gum frames. Whilst racing was progressing on the water, the ‘on shore’ activities were full of surprises.
Undoubtedly, the world’s wisest wonders of wooden boat wisdom and they were part of the Whyte, Just and Moore Wooden Boat Festival of Geelong.
Caravels were used by Bartholomew Diaz around the Cape of Good Hope in 1488 and in 1492 by Christopher Columbus in his ‘Santa Maria’!
The ‘Notorious’ is Lateen rigged, a rig that can be seen off the coast of India and on the Arab dhows in the Suez Canal today! Built entirely from reclaimed timber and without felling a single tree, amateur boat-builder, Graeme Wylie built ‘Notorious’ almost with his bare hands! The perfect viewing site at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club enabled every display to be close to, or actually on, shore.
Children were not forgotten and their entertainer, pirate Cap’n Jack Sparrow had them enthralled!
Onshore, a jazz band entertained during the afternoons and ‘Rock and Roll’ with the Hoos Bros got the ‘sea legs’ working at night. On top of all that, boat building displays, featuring local boat builders demonstrated chalking, laminating and steam bending. With all this at your disposal, you must put ‘Labour day weekend 2014’ into your diary now so you do not miss this incredibly wonderful spectacle of fine workmanship. Having won the 420 World Championship in 2000, the feeder class to the 470, while still at school in Australia young Matt Belcher was given the honour of carrying the Olympic flag during the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics.
