Historical 18-Footer Britannia- A New Angle

7670 Abonnenten

The GoPro is mounted on the bumpkin (yes we have called it a bumpkin for 150 years) 2.4m (8 feet) forward of the stemhead giving us a new angle on the boat sailing. Britannia is a replica of a 1919 racing 18-footer and we we try to sail it as much as we can like it was done a century ago. The boat is a beautiful example of Australia’s tradition of wooden boatbuilding, and Britannia and the rest of the historical 18-footer fleet can be seen maintaining our maritime heritage every Summer Saturday on Sydney Harbour.
