CYA Riverhead Pub Cruise – Tomorrow 

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 11.15.03 am

Don’t forget that tomorrow (Sunday) we will have some of the classic launch fleet cruising to the Riverhead Hotel for lunch. Boats are departing at 11.30am from under/around the Auckland Harbour Bridge, then proceeding to the Riverhead with an estimated ETA of 1.00pm. As always it’s fairly casual, so you can join in at any stage on-route. For the newbies – follow the leader & you will be all good in terms of navigating the ‘creek’. Remember to bring a dinghy. And if you are boat-less, come by car.

There is always a good turn-out of waitematawoodys there (photo below)

If the sun shines, there will be some good photos on WW on Monday

  1. Riethmaier, the photographer, was on von Luckner’s second SEEADLER which visited New Zealand in 1938, accompanied by SS minders. Riethmaier jumped ship at Auckland and told the authorities that von Luckner was here to spy (surprise, surprise).

  2. That boat is a Shipbuilders; lives near Lucinda on the Whakatakataka moorings. Painted all white with a ply flying bridge now. Visually a bit rotten but probably only the ply.
