History of Sirius
In 1932 the celebrated Australian yachtsman, Harold Nossiter,
won the Lipton Cup, one of Australia’s most coveted yachting trophies.
Nossiter was planning retirement from his Sydney-based importing business
in order to circumnavigate the world by yacht. His own yacht, Utiekah II,
was a good sea boat but had little forefoot and would not heave-to,
so she was condemned for the purpose.
For this he felt he required a custom designed boat of advanced concept for the time.
He took his ideas to J.D.Thistlethwaite, a naval architect in Greenwich N.S.W.
who converted them to paper and completed the design in 1933.
