    Thanks guys. Sometimes I look at that boat and don't see a 1974 build. Many do not believe that it's wooden.

    I've been sent another couple, what's happening here is we are just easing off for the top mark, which why the jib is cracked off a bit.
    This photo is taken by Dean Wright from Arethusa, and Arethusa is a complete subject in her own right. Not to mention of course, the lovely image.
    All those photos incidentally, make her look in better condition than she really is, poor Riada was ignored this winter as we changed our lives by moving on out of the smoke.

    A ketch spanking along with reefs tucked in. Beautiful.

    Not reefs Dave, those are stack packs rolled up on the booms. I couldn't stand the things waving around while sailing so disconnected them from the lazy Jacks a few years ago
    Works well.

    Brilliant! Thanks Alan! Leda and Princess are two that just look like classic NZers to me, among others, of course. What a fleet you have there!

    Well the pics show some times for me, otherwise not.
    Ah well.. anyway a third overall in the gaff division, smallest boat at 40 ft against one other 42 footer and 5x 54 plus, we could have won it if only, yadayada
    Funny moment of the regatta in flukey light conditions , 100 metres from the finish we got taken aback by a 40 degree wind shift which then went to 90 and weather cocked us around into a 360.
    As I announced to the many many people who witnessed it, we did 1 penalty turn in case we'd done something wrong. ........

    Third! In A class! When the Mahurangi Regatta (first on handicap in gaff B class) wouldn’t let Steve step up a class! Brilliant. And here’s a video of (Ngatira-triumphant) Race 2:

    Roger Mills has been making some wonderful short videos of the classics for a few years now, we've had a few of his , mahurangi and the like. Did you watch the horsey one that my nephew has on Facebook, Gareth, quite magnificent. It's a promo for a riding/trekking company but the shots and scenery of Northland are to die for.

    Another later boat in the Brooke style, I forget who designed her. She was a giveaway with a big cruising cabin, we sailed with her or against her for years in the 90s. They went the day boat/racer route with her...big cockpit. Tino rawa trust boat.

    Jase's Wairiki beside Rawhiti. Yes there's a foreground effect on relative size but that is one heck of a rig in Wairiki.

    Teal.. I can't remember but 1960's?. She was close to destruction , a rescue hull with a big double window cabin IIRC.
    All that removed and she's now an overnighter / classic racer with a giant cockpit and modern rig.

    No , its just that we were close, and had a couple of things gone our way we would have. But thats yot racing.

    regarding the image posting problems, the only thing I can see is that when I post multiple images one after the other using the WB upload method , they just close off and don't show. If I understood why or what I was doing wrong it would make life a bit easier. Anyone have ideas on that?
