Beautiful shot. LIKE

Cheers from Hong Kong, Jeff

Cheers Jeff. The departing yacht had a complement of college students on board. Presumably they were learning about sailing as part of their sporting curriculum. New Zealand has a world class reputation as sailors and navigators, not only in the modern world but in the centuries of Polynesian migrations and settlement.

Thank you Berend. I know how much you are drawn to boats and water! Greetings from OZ.

That is a great compliment, PETER. Thanks.

Dear Erwin,

You would know well how much we your fans enjoy your photography of small boats in your local harbours. So it is an honour for me to receive your compliment.

Warmest regards from across the Pacific,

Thanks Michael.

There is an interesting sequel to my taking this photo:

The teachers on the departing yacht, called out asking me to email this photo to the school, Garin College. I tried to do that but their email system rejected it, apparently because the file was too large, or someone suspected it was a malicious attachment, even though I told them what it was. I have posted it on GE, and I presume someone from Garin College has seen it.
