A Friday Quiz

Relax – I’m not turning into a royalist, its just that the recent postings have sparked a few memories about photos of classic’s & royal visits.  HMRY Britannia escorted by MV Endeavour, skippered by Borrie Beachman, leaving the Waitemata for Mt. Maunganui 9 or 10 February 1963. The clinker dinghy being towed is still in the family & the owner needs to start on her restoration 🙂

A little bit of chop on the Waitemata that day, young Queenie would not have liked that.

  2. The original clinker dinghy from Endeavour, built by Brin Wilson, is in a shed at Tinopai, when Jack Matich brought her he gave the dinghy to Eric Williams.
