Mahurangi Regatta 2013 Classic Launch Parade Photos

Postby Alan H » Tue Jan 22, 2013 11:11 am

Attn: Launch Owners

Interest in launch racing (of any kind) at this weekends Mahurangi Regatta is low, so low that the numbers interested do not justify the effort & resources to run an event. But thats ok, the weekend is more about just having a good time on our boats.
We are however going to have a parade of classic launches on the Saturday morning. Details below. Please note, the harbour is a very congested space on Regatta day so lets all be nice & friendly & keep an extra pair of eyes on watch for the wallies of this world.

See you at Mahurangi.

Cheers Alan

Despite the very un launch friendly weather - the loyal made the effort & were rewarded with great weather in the inner harbour.
We had 15 launches for the 2013 CYA Parade of Classic Launches (in chronological order) - Dick Couglna's 1905 Logan - Ferro, Sarah Charles & Micheal White's 1919 Joe Slattery - Raiona, A Tyler & D o'Callahan's 1927 Col Wilde - Tasman, Alan Houghton's 1928 Lane Motor Boat - Raindance, Yvonne Carter & Chris Due's 1936 Col Wilde - Amakura II, Jill Hetherington's 1939 C Bailey & Son - Tuna, Peter Boardman's 1940 Dick Land - Lady Margaret, Anne & Chris Leech's 1947 Dick Lang - Castaway, Kathy & Ian Gavin's 1947 Richard Hartley - Florence Dawn, Joanne & Don Clarks 1959 Bob Salthouse - Seafever, Jackie & Graham Guthrie's 1960 Bob Salthouse -Kailua, Barbara & David Cooke's 1965 Bob Salthouse - Trinidad, Baden Pascoe's 1968 HW Pascoe - John Dory, Graham Murray's 1970 Phil Lange - Maria, Nicky & Alan Good's 2004 Logan - Lucille.

Ferro lead us away on a lap of the inner harbour that saw a 'drive by' into Sullivans Bay. If there was a prize it would have to go to Raiona who had the most flags up & the caps were very cool :wink:

Not sure what was so special with the flag that id deserved a 'special' ship-to-ship delivery - maybe it was off Gypsy, if thats the case then - air-to- ship would be ok :lol:

On route to Mahurangi I crossed paths with Mark Lever's Nereides, one of my favorite CYA boats, its on the bucket list. The steading sail was doing everything it was designed to do :D

Correct - not the best launch weather. However, we did manage to sneak down to Rocky Bay - (as well as 63 other boats).
