Why is she called the Wolfhound ?
Because we had two of the most wonderful Wolfhounds called Shamus and Paddy. They have been the best companions for 9 years. We rescued them from ‘death row’ at a dog pound in Sydney when they were 4 months old. They had been abandoned together on the the side of a major road. They were very thin and infested with flees when they were found. We brought them home and they have repaid us a thousand times over with their love, loyalty and good guarding.
When trying to decide on a name for our new schooner, we thought of all the famous vessels that had gone before with ‘Hound’ names. The mighty sailing ships - ‘Deerhound’, ‘Staghound’, Greyhound’ and of course, the famous racing yacht ‘Bloodhound’ and the exquisite little gaff sloop ‘Foxhound’. It seemed to us that the name ‘Wolfhound’ was a noble name, with a connection to famous vessels from history.
