View from Notorious as she came into Tin Can Bay inlet recently
Did anyone else think they had accidentally travelled back in time when they spotted a beautiful wooden ship heading into Tin Can Bay inlet at the end of January?
The stunning Notorious is a full-size replica fifteen-century caravel (a type of Portuguese or Spanish sailing ship used for exploration), designed and constructed single-handedly from reclaimed timber by Graeme Wylie at his home in Bushfield, Victoria.
Since her launch at Port Fairy, Victoria in 2011 she has now sailed over 20,000 nautical miles in Bass Strait, Southern Ocean, Tasman and Coral Seas crewed only by Graeme and his partner Felicite.
Notorious is the only sailing caravel in the Southern Hemisphere and Australia’s only lateen-rigged ship, and is owned and operated by Seadog Sailing Inc – a registered not-for-profit incorporated association dedicated to maintaining this spectacular ship ‘to ensure she continues sailing the high seas to educate, amaze and inspire all who see her’.
