Sailing Sunday – Northcote & Birkenhead Yacht Club Regatta

 

Sailing Sunday – Northcote & Birkenhead Yacht Club Regatta
Yesterdays (01/11/14) regatta marked the official opening of the Northcote & Birkenhead Yacht Club’s new clubroom. A selection of photos below – not my best, I took the wrong camera lens……………….. 😦
Nice to see the Idle Alongs in amongst the classic fleet, even had to help out one that had an oops 🙂
As always – click photos to enlarge – enjoy.

Local resident Bill Belton also had his camera & long lens out & for those that can view the link – there are 182 photos at the link below

Mondays ww post is a goodie – the latest classic launch to join the CYA fleet – Arohanui, owned by CYA Chairman Rod Marler, a big day for the launch group i.e. the Classic Yacht Association’s top man is now a launch owner 🙂 Must be time for a name change –  Wooden Boat Club……………….. 😉

  1. Solid day by the looks- gutted I had appointments and couldn’t race! Sailing like this is what keeps these classic yachts relevant and interesting when they are able to still have close competition. I hear Jonquil ran her engine a lot during the race.
