A Woody Parade & Pub Cruise


A Woody Parade & Pub Cruise
The last 3 days have seen the running of the 2017 CYA Classic Regatta, the main event being the sailing but this year we had a parade of classic wooden launches.To be confirmed but on my count 22 classics took part & it was an impressive sight – I hope someone videoed it from the RNZYS as we motored past.
The photos below are a little low in colour as the day started very overcasts but as the day went on the weather just got better & better.
The day was acually in 2 parts – starting with the parade, then a cruise to the Riverhead Hotel for lunch. Given the number of vessels (several more joined in on-route) anchoring at the hotel end was always going to be interesting…………………….. A couple of ‘oops I’m aground’ but all sort out & the photos /names stayed in the camera.
The photo gallery form is a mix of my camera & Pauline Evill (guest on Raindance). Enjoy 🙂

  2. Can’t quite make out the stern of the RAIONA, there appears to be either some sort of appendage on the starboard side, with vertical slots, or otherwise, she seems to have lost her most beautiful cruiser stern, in which case that would be terrible, that is, — (or was), — such a special part of the uniqueness of beauty & a real sacrilege if it has gone. — That is what to me, has always made her in to the very special boat she is, — or was. — KEN R
