The Yachts




Chorse is a later model from the same builders that made Kay Cottee’s famous boat that she sailed solo, nonstop and unassisted around the world twenty years ago. Chorse is a regular local racer and has cruised Tasmania, New Zealand, Fiji, the Whitsundays and more.

Owner John Smith said he is thankful, honoured and privileged to have learnt from the icons of our sport and enjoys sharing what he has learnt with new recruits to the sport. “Our regular training and racing has seen us finish at both ends of the results sheets. It’s important to the crew of Chorse that everyone enjoys themselves and comes away with a bit more competence and confidence in their sailing – which makes everyone a winner,” said John.
