Built by the Higgs Brothers in Geelong in 1938 21’5” Harriet (nee Birgitta E) is thought to have fished during her early years out of Lorne. In 2001 Malcom Bamford purchased Harriet in a dilapidated condition, where she was sitting on a mooring at Apollo Bay. Alongside Len Dodson, a local tradesman from Sorrento, an extensive restoration took place.
In 2014 Harriett transitioned into a larger syndicate of young SSCBC members. In 2019 she won the Portsea Cup on handicap and presents as a wonderful opportunity for any people interested in being competitive in the ever-expanding division two fleet at Sorrento.
Harriet has been regularly serviced and maintained by The Wooden Boatshop. She carries a Nanni 3.75 HE engine, last serviced in 2023. Her sails are Hooper, and she was re-rigged with new sheets prior to last season.
