Anyndah : Her Epic Race Of 1931
Anyndah recently featured in the March 2018 Albert Strange Association Newsletter which prompted me to see what I could find out about this Australian based boat, build in 1928. A search through digitised old newspapers turned up a racing success from 1931 in which Anyndah featured on the front page of The Register News-Pictorial, an Adelaide based publication. Here is a scan of that piece of the front page:

The current owner, Rob Smedley, still has Anyndah based in Adelaide. She's now bermudan rigged. Rob sent in an up-to-date photograph of his boat, reproduced below.
