Information from 1-st owner




Some quotes  from the first owner

1-ste mail Bill Burnes


other quotes:

I don’t know if you are aware, But unfortunately her designer Joe Adams was murdered in the Philippines this year.

I was involved with construction,sourcing all masts and rigging, engine hatches, winches etc from pals that I crewed with on Hobart and Fastnet races

I was heavily into Ocean Racing at the time , and was lucky to represent Australia in Ocean racing,

The reason I built Carinya was that I wanted a yacht that would take me anywhere I wanted to Go.

I wanted to cruise in comfort not be wet and cold under all conditions.

Carinya was Launched at Bayview in Sydney, then we sailed her as just a shell hull to Auckland New Zealand, to have her fitted out  in Teak

I was able to employ a young cabinet maker to do the interior he worked daily on Carinya for a period of 12 months,

when we sailed to Bali in Indonesia, Two young woodcarvers carved the designs into the teak.

I originally had Carinya a 9.9 metre wooden sloop that was a beautiful boat and gave a lot of pleasure. Then came Carinya 11.

Both boats called Carinya  because the aboriginal translation means Happy Home.

History of the yacht

The sailing yacht s.y. Carinya II is build by PA Kelly in Sydney according a design of Joe Adams. From this designs have been build about 20 ships in steel and two in aluminium like the Carinya II. The first owner, Bill Burnes gave me some interesting details about s.y. Carinya II.

Since 1999 I sailed over  22.000 nM with s.y. Carinya II.  The firts 2.5 year I made a long trip with my wife. After that I started working in the Netherlands again and our children were born. In 2006/2007 I organized a thoroughly refit, where everything is improved our renewed and afterward maintained well. See the details on this website.  In the period of the refit I became CWO  sea sailing instructor. Later I started my own sea-sailing school and used the Carinya II for the longer trips. For example the Carinya II participated 5 times in the Colin Archer Memorial Race [CAMR].
