Devonport Yacht Club – Haul Out
I stumbled across the above photo of the Devonport Yacht Club in days gone-by, I’m sure woody Chris Leech will be able to give as an approx. date.
Interesting that there is a greater % of launches versus yachts hauled out – I wonder how many we can ID?
The clubrooms look a lot different these days but the yard is still operational & long may it stay that way 🙂
They do not pack them in like this anymore – much more civilised. Photo below of my Raindance hauled out 6 years ago on the DYC slip.
True to form – Chris Leech has sent me the below photos. The one of the “Clubhouse” on the end of the floating crane, is dated 1927. The other ones are dated roughly, and some more recent (1999), showing the orange launch “Tapui” (centre front) launched in 1975. The date of the colour photo is being investigated.
