OYSTER – Sailing Sunday
Bay of Islands woody – Dean Wright, sent me the above photo of the 1903 Charles Bailey Jnr. built yacht Oyster that John Gander has sent to him along with the comments below. Oyster has just changed hands, new owner – Gavin Pascoe and now resides in Wellington. In late Feb we back grounded the boat https://waitematawoodys.com/2021/02/28/oyster-sailing-sunday/
The above photo I took of her in about 1980’s she was owned by an old guy, Dick Young. He kept her in Curious Cove out from the holiday camp were he had a job, the camp accommodated school parties and often Oyster would be seen loaded with a crew of school kids that Dick would take sailing. He was an interesting fellow with a wealth of knowledge of wooden sail boats and always seemed to keep Oyster in good shape.
Sunday is the last chance this year to partake in the best wood fired pizza i have ever had. Woody Bay, Rakino Island
