Mystery Yacht – Sailing Sunday

Who can ID this?

Unless you saw her hauled out, ID’ing this classic yacht will be  a challenge 🙂 but we have some serious train spotters out there, so lets hear your picks.

The ww follower that gets it right will win a copy of Baden Pascoe’s great book ‘Launching Dreams – Percy Vos- the boats & his boys’


1. The owner is not going to win, you are already a winner 😉

2. Anyone that ‘hangs out/works’ around Westhaven is not going to win 😦

3. The judges (thats me) decision is the final  & no correspondence will be entered into 🙂

  1. Well we took a yacht out this time, and it was great to see the boys reaching up and down on Rainbow? Weather was perfect.


  2. Fantastic, I’m looking forward to the read.

    It was a p poor attendance yesterday by CYA launches


  3. Hmm, as a non Aucklander, and only visiting Auckland when it can’t possibly be avoided. (I don’t even know what a Westhaven is) I’ll have a stab.

    I’m think its Waitangi too.


  4. Not sure where Thelma’s mast is broken but I think it would have shown up in that pic so I am going for Waitangi


  5. I’d have a guess at Thelma, I saw her at Orakei last Wednesday and her varnish was looking a little so so, hence the tent.
