Jeff Cole sent these grand old racing yacht images from Australia overnight. I’m afraid that Googling for these boats has not revealed much for me (I gather there are too many Solent one-designs to be sure about Polaris and Tangerine), but they’re great anyway. Just look at the detail you can see of the Mohawk: is that dinghy made from canvas-on-frame?
Mohawk may be the subject of a print that some online poster companies are selling: Mohawk print.
