Sail-World.com : 2012 Coastal Classic: Riada and her crew of Lads and Dads
2012 Coastal Classic: Riada and her crew of Lads and Dads

'Riada will be competing in the 2012 Coastal Classic, starting Friday'   
Riada and her crew of 'lads and dads' are one of the teams that we'll be following as they sail up the coast for the NZMYC Coastal Classic on Friday 19 October.

Riada is a 1975 Laurie Davidson design of forty five foot (13.7m), says owner John Bertenshaw, and this year she provides the setting for what is possibly the last opportunity for three fathers to sail together with their teenage sons, before they finish school and head out into the world.

In the mid 70s, Riada, a ketch, was one of the boats to watch. She was designed as a fast cruiser of the day and is an exceptionally well built boat and very good sea boat. Riada is wooden, very strongly built of cold moulded construction with four skins of Kauri, by the Donald Brothers of Tauranga.

John says that she's made several ocean voyages over her life and is a delight to sail.

'I've sailed to Tonga and Fiji the last two years on her sister ship Riada II and she also is an absolute pleasure to be aboard. Both totally robust and seaworthy boats. We bought Riada in 2007 after 25 years cruising and classic racing the old Charles Bailey gaff rig B class, Waione.'

John will sail with old friends Tony Tyndall and Dave Woodward, men are he met through sailing and who have cruised together as families over the last 20 years or so and have grown into great family friends because of it. The boys, Tom Bertenshaw 17, Jake Tyndall 17 and Gavin Woodward 16, are each doing their first Coastal Classics, although all of the fathers have done several before. John himself has done eight.

'Who knows what they could be doing next year,' says John, 'we're going into the race with the attitude of having fun and enjoying the challenge, and making the boys do most of the work.'

Good luck Riada. We'll look forward to keeping in touch with your race as you sail north.
