Patricia Anne’s Original Owner

- 24th June 2020

My name is Sally and spent many weekends during my childhood watching Patricia Anne being constructed. My father Morris Jacobs engaged the Pompeii brothers to design and build her and she was named after my mother who Christened Patricia Anne by cracking a bottle of bubbles over her bow down at Mordialloc, Melbourne with a crowd in tow along with the local media. Over the years we made many trips to Royal Geelong Yacht Club and she spent many many months over the years at Bermagui where dad thoroughly enjoyed game fishing from her and achieved a few Australian records with both Marlin and Yellow Fin Tuna. She now looks very different with all the renovations and I wouldn’t have recognised her. My sister Maryanne and I think that she looks better as she was so high off the water with her original design that mum and I suffered such sea sickness. Anyway I though I would share my story with you. Cheers Sally Gilbert nee Jacobs email:
