The collection documents the lively sailing scene in Sydney during this period and features images of vessels ranging from large racing and cruising yachts to the great array of skiffs and the emerging technologies of motorboats. Images of many iconic vessels are also included in this visual record.

The other vessels were BINNGARRA, BURRA BRA, BELLUBERA, BALGOWLAH and BARRENJOEY.
