    There's been a Concordia in build here for a great number of years, by all accounts it's a beautiful build and a great deal of skill involved.
    Way back in the day when Margo was involved with the Concordia association in the US we chatted about it and I called the builder up. That could have been 10 years ago.
    Anyway, I believe that this is that boat. I was just driving through from Northland and took a short diversion to have a look at one of the boat yards. Those people had the look people get when they go to an event, so I wouldn't mind betting she's just gone in. All behind locked gates and I was travelling so I didn't hang around.

    I know what I think this is sitting right there in front of Len's Joann

    What does the panel think...
    I can't work out the rig, is that forward mast actually on that boat?

    It's raining, it's light but it is rain.

    Temporary can have various meanings.

    Yes, the rigger didn't realise the boat had been moved when he installed the masts.

    The rigs belong to Mary Harrigan, the LFH Joann,which is moored on the other side of the finger/pier.

    To explain Phil's comment.
    When we arrived in to our berth after our recent passage we were greeted by the sight of a 40 ft keel boat up on the rocks about a mile away across the inlet. Apparently he only went up the night before. Very high and dry he was.
    Evidently it was a one off accident and was due to " a temporary loss of spacial awareness".
    Gonna remember that one.

    I'll use it if I get stranded on a new sandbar when sailing tomorrow.

    Setting courses that suilt all our classes will be fun…… Windrush cats will skip right over the shallows.

    What a silly bunt I am. Last night I couldn't make out the yacht in the background.

    What is there some sort of boycott on the Antipodean thread? Or has Jeff also suffered a TLOSA?

    One of the great things about book launches of this type is it brings out all the old classics, and we get to stand around and jaw about sailing old boats.
    Anyway, a fabulous book about the K class here. Not a big class but as I've said many times on the wbf, if you think of them as NZs Concordia equivalent you'll get an idea of where they fitted into our yachting culture.

    A birdy told me the new Concordia pictured above in the thread is slated for substantial wooden media coverage, not a surprise

    The production of the book was made by our own wb effer, Steve H ,and Ngatira features as she was altered and rated into the class for a time in the 60s or so.
    Our boat Waione was also close but was a foot or so too long on the waterline and became a second div A class instead. Nice to see she made a stealth appearance in the frontice piece out in front of Katrina. We used to have some great battles with the Ks through the 2000s

    And on another scale..., 20191209_083128.jpg
    No , these are not Kiwis. But I have been learning that the best camo for sneaking up on rabbits are large white cars or vans, or little red cars without a roof.
    Conclusion, go hunting them dressed as a frigidaire or a little red car without a roof.
