In February this year Pete Dallaway's family and friends are fundraising to help to complete the restoration of the classic timber sloop Osprey.
With the dream of finally see her back in the water.

The Randel designed cruiser racer was originally built in Sydney in the early 1960’s and acquired in 1969 by Pete’s father Jim in partnership with local Doctor Roland Kingston. The first yacht to be moored in Callala Bay, Osprey became the corner stone on which the Jervis Bay cruising yacht cub was founded in 1970 under Jimmy’s stewardship.

Peter helped his father financially to obtain full ownership of the yacht when the partnership dissolved amicably a few years later and went on to follow in his fathers footsteps and continued to campaign Osprey in local races and play a major roll in the leadership of the yacht club on his return to Australia with his young family in 1993.

With the passing of Pete’s wife Monica two years ago and his own continuing fight against cancer, it has been a difficult time. Pete would love nothing more than to see Osprey back in the water again and retain her place as piece of the Bay’s yachting history.

With the major hull refurbishment already completed under the guidance of the wooden boat specialists at Noakes’s shipyard in Sydney and new rigging already acquired, his family and friends are asking all those who know and love Pete to donate towards completing the final fit out so that Osprey can be handed on to the next generation in good working order with the ultimate goal of following the family tradition of introducing others to joy and challenges of sailing and making the yacht available for youth development programs when recommissioned.
