Classic Yacht Racing, Auckland, NZ

When we met up last weekend, the Venerable TD Wombat Esq. (a.k.a Fuzzy) reminded me that I hadn't posted anything about the Southern Trust Classic Yacht Regatta we were part of back in February.

For those that don't know, it's sailed yearly on Auckland Harbour and is a truly a sight to behold!! Here are a couple of photos of our racing on Waitangi (a 76' Logan gaff cutter built in 1894) on the Friday taken by one of the crew:

Here's Thelma chasing us:

I have the Trans-Tasman Cup sitting in pride of place on my mantlepiece. Two firsts, two seconds in different boats...

More photos of this event can be found here: CYA 2011 Classic Yacht Regatta - Photos
