Woody Waiheke BBQ





Not sure what these two were up too but the t-shirt gets the WW of approval

Woody Waiheke BBQ

Saturday (30/03/2019) saw a group of hardy, the barometer was not saying summer, CYA members gather in Putiki Bay, Waiheke Island for a post CYA yacht race BBQ. The photos have been enhanced, it wasn’t quite that sunny 🙂

The bay filled up with a good collection of woody yachts and launches. The CYA committee even put on a band – well done guys.
Special thanks to Chris Sadler for the use of his launch – Moeraki as the start boat for the yacht race. Moeraki is a very smart looking woody, I have always admired her – great to see her out on the Waitemata. You can read / see more on her here (lots in the comments section).  https://waitematawoodys.com/2014/03/26/mystery-launch-26032014/
Woody launches in the bay included – My Girl, Lucille, Waimea, Puawai, Lucinda, Matuku, Summer Wine, Wirihana and Mahanui – some I suspect were moored there.
Special thanks to Jason Prew and Mark Edmonds for the (phone) photos.
As a special treat for the skipper of Lucille – I have include the youtube video below 😉

  1. Back into your box tekaye. This was the end of the day. The boats were anchored for the night. Keep the PC BS some place else please. Both of those people are very responsible senior boaters.

  3. We also made it down to Putiki Bay on Te Arahi although slightly later – the on-shore set-up was extremely good and I was extremely impressed with the band – both the music and the effort required to provide arrange this in a paddock for a small select group of people – Thanks and WELL DONE.


  4. why is it that the boating people always have alcohol in there photo’s, when they are sailing or motoring along, or at any dry land function, the coast guard are always saying alcohol and boating do not mix, funny that.
