UNKNOWN YACHT WRECK – Sailing Sunday

Today’s post features two Tudor Collins photos of an unnamed yacht beached at Baddeleys Bay, on the Tawharanui Peninsula, photos ex the TC collection at the Auckland Museum emailed to me by Ken Ricketts.
Anyone able to ID the yacht & how she came to end up on the beach ?

Few things in life scare me – but I do have a thing about snakes – if it had of been me working on the electrics of this boat, an underpants change would have been on the cards 🙂 Click link below to watch the video

  3. It’s DAISY on 30th January 1939. DAISY was a 2 1/2 rater built by Chas. Bailey Jr in 1894. Mervyn Algie of Mullet Point bought her and repaired her. After WW2 She was renamed WAIMEA and went to Sydney.
