  1. Patrizio Bertelli has two 12m yachts. Nyala US-12 and Kookaburra II KA-12. Nyala built in 1938 the 12th 12m built in the USA. F.T. Bedford commissioned the 12 meter Nyala as a gift for Briggs Cunningham and his daughter Lucie when they married. In 1931 Cunningham was a crew member aboard the Dorade when it won the race around the Fastnet Rock In 1937 he was a member of the crew for Harold Stirling Vanderbilt on his yacht Vim.

  2. Kris left the ports in on the sides of the cabin trunk and just packed the runner cleat to suit.
  3. KZ3. Keel would not be original from 1987 as they have had a few since then. KZ7.
  4. Here’s my 10cents worth as a Kiwi tax and ratepayer that is subsidising TNZ. The AC has always been a design race not a one design race take away that aspect and you might as well go watch Etchells crawl around a course.

Teak was high grade Burmese 1/2 inch quarter sawn laid on plywood glued and screwed not something that one would or could afford to attempt today given the scarcity cost of the timber politics and sustainability issues etc .
  9. The Waione sadly has been shed bound for many moons somebody else's story to tell not mine. Was Mai Tai originally rigged as yawl like this Hinkley build was.
  10. Nice lines your boat has Lane and that counter stern sure brings back a flood of boyhood memories looking at your NZ sail number 284 our last yacht was 283. Boat on the right Waione Chas Bailey 1907 was the family yacht when I was a boy .
