Otago Yachting & Motor Boat Club – 100 years ago
I was recently sent a link to an article in the Otago Daily Times by Lindsay Grenfell. The original article ran in the ODT 100 years ago (24/03/1920. The photo above was captioned – ‘A launch load of children from orphanages leaving Dunedin wharf for the annual picnic given by the Otago Yachting and Motor Launch Club.. The launch has no markings / name board. Can anyone ID the vessel?
Auckland boaties used to run a similar gig – link here to a WW story from back in August 2015 https://waitematawoodys.com/2015/08/12/orphans-day/
Input from Harold Kidd – INNISFREE which A C Hanlon sold to the Otago Harbour about this time when she was renamed PILOT.
