    An outstanding set of photos once again - thank you! But while amused by your rant about no-dogs-on-beach policy, it was kind of sad too to think how a minority could affect the future of an event.

    Missed it this year.
    That's a new boat Jeff. Well, a few years old but you know what I mean.

    I thought that the picture windows gave it away somewhat, but I still like her lines.

    Thank you as ever,

    There's a great spread in the Jan/Feb issue of the magazine, with pictures by Ben Mendolowitz. In 2 or 3 of the pictures there's a burgee very similar to the New York YC. shown on this page. These pictures were taken in 2019.

    I tried googling various NZ yacht clubs, but keep coming up with burgers.

    What's going on?Were boats chartered by NYYC, or is there a similar burgee.

    That would be the CYA burgee, Gareth.

    Worn out a few of those.

    Geez, there's a few years and miles there when I look at it.
