I was contacted recently by Louis Jensen from Christchurch who owns the beautifully restored Mason Marlin classic runabout, Lasanta. Very pretty classic. Louis has promised to send more details & photos (nudge nudge) but I could not resist putting these ones up on WW today. It was the perfect excuse to give this coming weekends Lake Rotoiti Classic & Wooden Boat Parade a plug.  You will find full details here

It’s an amazing event, so if you are anywhere around the central North Island, make an effort to attend. I’ll be there, so look out early next week for another big classic woody photo gallery. Might even buy a boat……………………….

The annual Waitangi Day CYA picnic at Motuihe is always a great boating day out & with most of us sliding away on the Monday, its a perfect stop off on the way home. Location will depend on the wind i.e. whichever side is most protected from the  breeze/sea. Look out for the big CYA burgee on a pole in the sand and that will be meeting spot, bring your picnic and introduce yourself. Motuihe gets busy on a sunny day but there’s always room 🙂
