'Bolero' John Alden 56ft Yawl Hobart to Sydney December 2020

Hobart to Sydney December 2020...

Completed in 1985 after 11 years, the builder circumnavigated the globe with his wife. Only one other owner who continued the immaculate upkeep of this superb yacht keeping it in Hobart until now new owner Timothy joined us for the trip north to the Pittwater. Weather patterns were non existent which meant we had to pick the best of the not so conducive patterns and do our best. So we had a bit of everything and Bolero handled all that was thrown at her with style. Joined on the crew were Paul and Rob so a full compliment meant a very easy watch system and not too much time in the cold and wet in the early stages. The photos below show snow (summer in Hobart) on Mt Wellington, and excerpt from Seabreeze showing some strong winds when we arrived in Hobart, passing by the Dennison Bridge to the Dunally Canal (thank you Shane the bridge manager)
