Frosty Senior and Junior's Sharpie sailing adventures.
This section is mostly a pictorial of our sailing days PLUS
National Sharpie Titles Info from 1954 to 2023.
Update April 2023: All Aussie Title Programmes between 1959-2023 are now on my website.
So far, I have received data from 47 Sharpie sailors (retired and active). That is unbelievable.
If you have any results (full or partial), please contact Frosty by email.
My dad (Keith) started sailing in the late 50s at the Black Rock Yacht Club (BRYC), and I used to go and watch Dad sail. Eventually, in the early 60s, I started sailing the club training yachts which were International Cadets.
In 1968 at age 16, Charlie Robinson (forwardhand) aka Chic, Michael O'Reilly (mainhand) aka Horace and I (fearless skipper) bought Dad's Sharpie V97 and while Dad bought a new one V123, that was the start of my Sharpie adventures which continued to about 1982.
Below I have found some of our sailing photos and posted them for all to see and something that I can look back on and relive some magic memories of our lives.
It is unreal how Facebook allows me to re-establish our yachting friendships.
I created these webpages because it replaces the old photo albums,
and is a lot easier to view instead of hunting for the albums.
