Ships that pass........

I was out on the Manukau Harbour last Saturday to watch some of the Hartley 16 National Champs up at Onehunga. A beautiful day, for a change, with bright sun and light breezes. On my way back to French Bay I chanced apon Grant May in his Welsford Truant, and of course had to have a chat and take the inevitable photo..

Mahurangi Regatta

 
The scene on the beach at last years regatta. My Whiting 16 can be seen just launching at back right.
The regatta takes place every Auckland Aniversery Weekend which falls on the last weekend of the month of January.
I commend either participation of just turn up and watch the fun.
