Story

Tally Ho Is An Important Historic British Yacht, Designed n 1909 By The Great Albert Strange, But Is Threatened With Destruction If We can't Rescue Her --- by the end of June 2017

Depending on what we raise we have three options: "just move her", "move her to a more heritage friendly US East coast site", "Bring Her Home" to the UK. We're seeking support and funds in several ways.

Amongst Tally Ho's many achievements was winning the 1927 Fastnet Race in near storm conditions where only two yachts of the fleet managed to complete the race.

"...Tally Ho, working toward the Lizard under reefed main and spitfire jib. High though the seas rose, she seemed as steady as a church, and we watched her in silent admiration.
Here indeed was a competitor..."

(Alf Loomis, La Goleta, Fastnet 1927)

And here indeed is a yacht worth saving.

That task of bringing her home makes significant demands on us. The estimate for the cost of doing that is around 30,000 pounds or dollars. That is far more that the ASA's current wealth. We are a just small association of like-minded enthusiasts and volunteers.

Our aim at this point is, if at all possible, to raise the funds to achieve that repatriation.

    Fundraising remains a little slow, but there are now a number of people helping with other aspects. We're hoping we may get a cost-reduced shipping, we have people looking for locations close to Port of Brooking Harbour if we fail to raise enough to repatriate her, we have one or two people now who are considering taking on the restoration. There's progress.

    I'm no longer locked out of Facebook, but still can't post messages, not even as replies, which seems silly to me. Please forgive me if I haven't said thank you on Facebook.

    Oddly Facebook seem to think I have multiple accounts, which I don't, and have locked me out. Hopefully that will soon be resolved.
