Tui – Sailing Sunday
I have had to photoshop the above photo as there were a few visible clues.
So the question today is – whats the boat & why she it famous?
After she has been ID’ed I will supply more details on the how I received the photo 😉
Update: The above P-Class is in fact Tui, built in Auckland by David Marks in 1952 and given to Her Majesty the Queen with the suggestion that Prince Charles might like to learn to sail in her. She is presently on loan to the ex Royal yacht Britannia from Portsmouth Naval Base. The photo was sent to me by David Balderston who visited Britannia recently while on holiday.
