Description

Sailing has a 182 year history at the Royal Hobart Regatta, being one of the inaugural events in 1838. The magnificent trading ketches featured prominently for more than 60 years, and from the 1880s the 28 footers such as Clutha, Volant, America, Caress, Ailsa and Fairlie competed for significant prizemoney.
