SHIRALEE E64 – Sailing Sunday
Todays photos are from Sian Perrott the daughter of Roy Kendall & show the launch & sailing of his back yard built 28′ E class keeler, Shiralee.
I know nothing about the design or what happened to her i.e. is she still around?

Shiralee was built from a Gerry Breekveldt design featured in Sea Spray in May 1955.
Took NZYF number 464 in 1969.
Known owners: Roy Kendall 1958/67+?; R. Haysom 1965+? C.R. Kendall 1970?/71+? (Still Registered as Owner NZYF 1999);
Currently unregistered and no any clues to her whereabouts.

The small yacht in the group of 4 pix is the M-class Morere M-32 designed and built by Roly Moreland. Roy Kendall bought Morere off John Morrison in 1963 and (his sons?) raced her for the 1963/64 season.
AH – photo added of M32
Harold Kidd Input – Confirm Breekveldt design. She was rebuilt by Don Roberts and renamed JUMEIRAH. Steve Cranch knows all about her. Roberts owned her still in Auckland in 2012 still with sail number 464.
