Siena - Winner Best Dressed Crew 2016

 

International Dragon Class Keelboat

Siena is a classic wooden Dragon and is constructed of Honduras Mahogany planks, oak ribs and teak deck and cabin top by the world renowned Borresens Boatyard in Denmark in 1967.

Siena was purchased by Mr Jaemie Wilson in Sydney in 2009.   Siena was lovingly restored on Raymond Island from March 2009 to November 2010 by Master Boat Builder Mr John Johnson (also a timber Dragon owner of 1962 Barnett AUS 82 “Ghost”), with assistance from Jaemie and his family and friends.

 

Siena is an ex-Olympic trial boat having been originally purchased from Borrensen’s by the Victorian Olympic representative crew Mick Brooke, Alan Cain and John Coon from the 1960 Rome Olympics.  Siena was launched at Royal Geelong Yacht club, and has previously been campaigned out of Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron, Royal Brighton Yacht Club and Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron.
