The Sydney 18 footer freaks continue to astound and amaze; and they’ve knocked together a replica of the iconic and dominating 18 footer Myra Too from the 50s,  splashed a couple of days ago for her maiden sail above.  Myra was built with the help of of the Aussie National Maritime Museum – take a look at some of their excellent research and photos here.

Myra Too will join the Flying Squadron’s Historic 18 fleet, which (quite incredibly) sails constantly though the summer out of the squaddie.  She’ll bring their number to an amazing 11, including a replica of Britannia, the first ‘modern’ 18 footer, whose original lives at the museum and is worth a visit from any sailor worth their salt.  We’ll have shitloads more news on the “eyedeens” over the next few weeks leading up to the fully live video coverage of the modern 18′ers World Champs, where 30 of the bastards will go for J.J. Giltinan’s gold.

For a really cool look at the fleet in the 60s, check out Sports Illustrated’s old files here for “A Bloody Way To Go Sailing.”  A great read, and you can actually see the original, as-printed story in the e-mag here (click forward to page 58).
