To CYAA (Vic) Member’s
Time to dust off those plans back to sailing plans.
Member’s plans to restart their Classic Yacht sailing will be announced here.
Classic Yacht Magazine Issue 43 Sept 2020
Yes, we have another CYAA magazine issue to talk about. Issue 43. It features the project known as Mark Chew’s Forty Two Australian Wooden Sailing Boat’s. About eight weeks ago, each day for six weeks (forty two days), Mark Chew listed an Australian wooden sailing boat on the CYAA Instagram site. The criteria for a boat to be listed is described by Mark in the magazine foreword. These forty two daily Instagram listings became a national then a global phenomena. The project finished up mid August, 2020.
The Forty Two Australians project is now a document of record in a coffee table quality magazine format produced by the CYAA. Use of ARHV records was willingly granted with the notable help of the Curator of the Australian Historic Vessels Register, David Payne. David’s support of this project is recognized by the CYAA. Many boats listed by Mark have New Zealand origin’s. CYAA Magazine Issue 43 was published with intent to sustain the strong relationship between the members of the Australian and New Zealand Classic Yacht Associations.
A mail out to CYAA members is all set to go. Make sure your membership is current to receive a collectible copy.

Check out the CYAA Boat Register page. Still in a build state but worth a look. Individual provenance pages waiting on owners/skippers and crews to fill with photo’s, info and stories on their classic. Yes, we know some classics, such as many Tumlarens, aren’t listed. Will fix asap. Here’s a link to look over. It’s the Mercedes III web site Link to the recently discovered 1967 Admirals Cup documentary.
