NEW BOAT ON THE BLOCK

After the sinking of Django owners AJ and Atka Reid have just christened their new arrival, Bakewell White designed YD37, Anarchy.  The Jack Tar Auckland Regatta was their deadline to have her sailing.  The boat is a testament to kiwi design and ingenuity.  Big credit from the owners to the team at Yachting Developments.  Work is progressing rapidly down at Westhaven to have her rigged and ready for Friday’s racing.   She is insured by PIC Insurance Brokers and will be sporting a flash new wardrobe of Doyle Sailshttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Anarchy-Racing/788549611211774
