NOMAD – Sailing Sunday
Today’s photo is very different from the woodys I was drooling over yesterday at the Mahurangi Regatta , but at WW they come in all shapes, sizes & condition.
Nomad certainly looks like that in her day she would not have been afraid of some blue water. Nomad was photographed by John Burland, in Nelson.
Do we know more about her?

If you are in & around Auckland, a float or on land – make the effort to check out the regatta, its an amazing sight & our woodys are a very big part of the event. Link below for details on what, when & where.
Two events with big appeal to WW motorboat followers – The Work / Tug boat race and the Classic Launch Race, again full details on the above link.

A couple of weeks ago as part of my xmas/ny cruise story, I posted a photo of a yacht a ground at Man o War Bay, we had not luck ID’ing her, so the skipper escaped being named 🙂 Another photo from John Wicks has surfaced – see below, anyone recognise her?
