Who Can ID The Yacht On The Rocks & Win A OCH Sailing Cap
The above two photos come to us from the camera of woody Paul Drake and I have Paul’s word that they are ‘never before seen’ photos of the yacht aground off Rangitoto Island in the early 1960’s. Paul was a teenager at the time, staying with a school friend and his parents in their Rangitoto bach. They spent their time messing about in the family’s seagull powered clinker dinghy and came across the ‘wreck’ by chance. They rendered what assistance we could. Paul commented that the crew seemed quite relaxed about their predicament and no doubt she came off with the next tide.
So woodys first correct answer, with the yachts name – emailed to email@example.com wins an Off Center Harbor sailing cap. Entries close at 8pm 05-03-2021
