History

Ripple has strong Historical ties with Sorrento, originally built for Tally Erlandsen, the then long standing lessee of the Sorrento Baths and original owner of the Fish and chips shop in that location. The boat was Built at Queenscliff by Peter Locke, his first boat. The owners who commissioned the restoration found her in disrepair in at Port Albert in 1987 after having spent some seven years on the bottom.
 

Race Record

Ripple is in fleet of nine other Coutas on the Swan in her first sailing season and is showing good potential as a fast boat.
 

Comments

Ripple was relaunched on Saturday 4th November 1989 By the daughter of Tally Erlandsen. Tally Erlandsen we believe was the first commodore of the Sorrento Sailing Club. Photos of the original launching in 1926 and the relaunching in 1989 have also been preserved.
