1970 and 1977 America’s Cup 12 metre yacht Gretel II was, in my eyes, the star of the 2011 Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart, Tasmania. I took this photograph on Saturday 12th February 2011 on Fuji Velvia slide film during the festival as she was moored opposite Constitution Dock. Velvia is the king of transparency films. The detail in the original scan is exquisite.
