Waylemina : Vashti Racer For Sale, £29,000
Waylemina is currently For Sale (August 2019). The sales particulars inform that she's had a successful racing career. This includes participating three times with good results in the Melbourne to Devonport race and twice in the Queenscliff to Devonport race in the early 1970s. In 1984 was sailed from Australia to Sweden via the Cape of Good Hope, which explains how she has ended up in Denmark.
Waylemina's hull is so smooth I initially thought it was plastic but, no, it's strip planked King Billy Pine on ribs of laminated oak.
