‘Calypso’ – SOLD September 2015
‘Calypso’ – Spacesailer 24
‘Calypso’ has been a special part of the Pearce family (Ken, Judy, Greg, Andrew and Tim) in Port Lincoln for 40 years. She was lovingly fitted out by the whole family from the time she arrived in 1975 by road from Perth as a fibreglass shell until the launch in 1976.
Racing and cruising around Boston Bay and neighbouring islands in Division Two of the Port Lincoln Club, this family boat won many local trophies.
As the smallest competing craft in the Performance Cruising Division in the annual Adelaide to Port Lincoln Yacht Race. ‘Calypso’ had two wins in 2006 & 2008 and a second in 2007. Sir James Hardy presented the trophy to the family crew in 2006. Leisure sailing in Boston Harbour continued until the year of sale (September 2015) and the boat has now left Port Lincoln, but the family has a store of good memories.
