Thelma and Gloriana - Grace and Pace

Gloriana and Thelma in the Viaduct Harbour

Two more Logan restorations were launched recently in Auckland, New Zealand. Gloriana was launched in 1891 and was built by the Logan brothers afterhours, for their own use. She is 34ft overall on a waterline of just 24 ft. Thelma was launched six years later in 1897. She was not really raced in Auckland, and was retrieved from St Tropez, by Auckland owners and restored by Wayne Olsen.
