I spotted this obituary in The Times today for Barbara Calder who dies at the end of January. An amazing lady, Barbara Calder had many claims to sailing fame. This included owning A49 Terrapina now ably restored by David Gray and still in Scotland. By all accounts you would not have wanted to be on the roads in Scotland when they were starting their season according to this extract from the Obituary:
“Hamish recalled his mother’s sense of adventure. In the Summer she would take them sailing in her 26ft Atalanta yacht, Terrapina. The boat was towed South with its sail up on the motorway but Calder took care to avoid bridges.”
The Obituary is well worth a read for Barbara Calder’s exploits. Read it on The Times website here.
