Blokes & their boats

Sailing ‘pond’ yachts has been a hotly contested hobby for as long as the models bigger cousins have been around. Des Townson took it to another level with his radio controlled Electron yacht, production of which continues today under the expert hands of CYA deputy chairman Bruce Tantrum. Racing takes place at several venues across Auckland, details on upcoming events & Bruce’s contact details found here http://www.electron.co.nz/#

Some rather nice dinghies on display in the b/w photo, I imagine the dinghy maneuvering was an ‘event’ in its own right.
