This week we towed the yacht “Westward” into St Helens where she will be on the slip for a week or so.

The cutter Westward, the only Tasmanian yacht to have twice won the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race on handicap, has been gifted to the Maritime Museum of Tasmania by the yacht’s owner for the past 55 years, Mr Stan Field. The Maritime Museum of Tasmania plans to have her as part of its exhibition of historic Tasmanian boats in Constitution Dock but also sailing regularly on the River Derwent.
