Classic Yacht Racing – Sailing Sunday
Sorry for the late post today, been out & about watching the A-Cup, 1-0 is a great start, even better is the fact we are actually (& mentally) 2 – Zip up on Oracle 🙂
Seems only fitting that we have some classic yacht racing today. The u-tube movie below is by Roger Mills & was bought to my attention on the WoodenBoat Magazine USA forum by kiwi classic yachtie Patrick Xavier (that’s not his real name, but I wont ‘out’ him here).
The clip shows the 1894 gaffer Waitangi preparing for a race in the winter series – 2016. Enjoy 🙂
Heading Across The Ditch In November?
The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum ( JBMM), in NSW, are holding a Classic Wooden Model Boat Festival on the weekend of November 10/11/12. Based on the info that I was sent by woody boat builder Colin Brown, whose brother Stan is on the Festival committee it’s a cracker weekend. See below details
On Friday evening (10th) there will be a casual “ Meet and Greet” in the museum. There should be chance to mingle, swap yarns & partake of refreshments.
The museum is land-locked but has large grassed areas surrounding the main building with a large shallow pond.
The northern area overlooks the Currambene Creek which flows into Jervis Bay at the coastal village of Huskisson which is only a short walk away.
We plan to have Trade Stalls and Hard Stand boat exhibits.
So woodys if your in Australia & looking for something to do put this event into their diaries. For more details you can contact Stan at firstname.lastname@example.org
