  1. Hi All, I would like to know the history of Safari. I have recently acquired Safari and her history would be very helpful, if anyone knows

    Hello Peter – I assume you have searched the name Safari on the WW site ? Lots of references to her + this link will tell you a lot.
    Kind Regards Alan H

  3. Hi,

    A good mate of mine has just passed leaving behind his bridgedecker “Saga”. Is there anyone who knows something of her history? She was purchased about 16 years ago from her p.o. at Gulf Harbour marina. Currently lying at Kerikeri. She is in need of a good clean up and possibly some repairs. Would anyone hazard a guess as to its value, as is, or restored/cleaned up?

    Any photos? if yes – email to waitematawoodys@gmail.com

  6. I am doing research work on the Flying Dutchman Class more specifically on 1964 Olympic Gold medal winner (KZ 22 – Pedersen and Wells).
    Would anyone have photos to share relative to this FD?
    What yard in NZ built this FD?.

    The FD Class association does not have this info on FD KZ22 recognizing that this dates back some 58 years. Earl Wells passed away in 2021. Don St Clair Brown in 2008 and Pedersen in 1987.

    Many thx. Paul, MONTREAL, CANADA.

  9. Does anyone know the whereabouts of a Ketch, which back in the late 1960’s early 1970’s, was named KIMBALA.
    It was owned by my uncle Keneth McLeod of One Tree Hill, and was then moored on a swing mooring, close to the RNZYS at Westhaven.
