    It must have been something in the air in the mid 70's , at a few get togethers down here, where the contents of fish bowls were consumed.

    What boat is this?

    Could be a ketch or yawl. But think of the cockpit parties.

    Radio controlled sailing

    This weekend 5th & 6th May will be the Pre 2000 regatta at The Lakes, Tauranga. The only criteria is the hull has to be designed prior to 2000. I have knocked of 14 years dust off my old "Drumboat" design, boy have the rigs and sails improved, so the rigs off the V8 have been fitted. The last I heard there about 15 entries. Here she is at the 2004 Nationals in Wellington and the last time it was sailed.
