Yacht Photos

These Photos were taken by Will at

The next two photos were taken during the start of the 2005 Coastal Classic Yacht race from Auckland's Waitemata Harbour to Russell in the Bay of Islands.

The race is very popular with over 230 yachts racing up the coast each year in October over Labour weekend holidays.

We entered Blue Heron in the two-handed division.

The conditions were good with a stiff SW to W breeze all the way up the coast.

I was happy enough with an average speed of 8.2 Knots over the 112 Nautical Mile race.
