Sorting through some old photos and scanning them.  I took this off Devonport in 1984 but don't remeber the boat.  Does anybody recognize her?

Curlew I think. I don't remember the red sails but it's a quay punt.
Timing is about right.

Yes!  Thanks for the reminder.  It was during her circumnavigation.

So not a NZ V Class????

 

V Class are 18ft but that ain't 18ft.

No. Not a NZ V class. She was (is) from the South West of England.

Ah ha, she's 28ft, that fits a lot better.

Interesting similarities.

Sorry - I meant to respond to this.  I am struggling to remember - but we were almost certainly heading out to the start of a Squadron race so, looking at the "shape" of the name and the transom I will posit that it is Nga Hau E Wha (Farr 1104) which at the time was Brian Kensington's boat.

 

As I ocassionally crewed on that boat I am embarrased because I remember the colour and placement of the name differently.  But I am probably confused in my  advanced middle age!  However I know another crew.org member here who can confirm of deny my assumption if he cares to ;-)
