Awesome stuff.

 

Anzac Day I got to watch Rainbow, Rawhiti and Thelma slug it out, all old school gaffers like Ariki. The 3 of them made the last AC look like sh*t with regards to style, grace and quality of racing. And they were only 3 of 24 odd classics. The winner was a smaller one with a name like 'Jonquil', apologies for spelling. It came past us like a frecking skiff, it was flying.

 

Say what you will about the latest WizzBang 65 and the fancy it'll be smothered with but as a visual pleasure it's not even in the running with most of the classics.

ahhh...

 

my bad

 

it was at the "marine room"  princes wharf, next to the maritime museum

 

much bigger affair than  thought it would be

 

Ariki will stayed moored  at the museum on piles specially driven in for her

 

apparently without any winches

 

it will take 6 people to haul in the main for a gybe
