Today’s photo by Whites Aviation shows a classic bridge-decker with a crowd of spectators on board watching the 1950 (100th) Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta. Bastion Point on left in the background.
At first glance I thought the launch was Valsan but its not, so what say the woodys?

It’s a big call given what we can see but anyone want to take a punt on ID’ing the other bridge-decker?

Big day today at Mahurangi for the annual classic regatta – lots of photos next week 😉

Remember Monday is Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta. More details here

  1. I Agree with Nath — it is without doubt the VALSAN which on that day was owned by the late Arnold Baldwin, & she had her 2 original 90hp Graymarine petrol engines which always showed a little stream out the stern exhausts. I knew the boat & Arnold B & his family well, at that time. KEN R
