ICOYC Cruise 2015 - New Zealand
We passed North Head where we had watched the Louis Vuitton Cup in 2010, we then went out into the Rangitoto Channel. Rangitoto Island is coned shaped with its highest point at 259 metres.
In fact it erupted 800 years ago and it is the youngest of all the volcanoes located around Auckland. We left the aptly named Browns Island to starboard. It looked very scorched by the sun.

PPYH Berth Ballot Results
evening saw the inaugural ballot for berths in
the Prince Philip Yacht Haven.
37 members had applied for berths, in
addition to the 24 who have already applied for
3-year berths, ensuring that the yacht haven
will be full in its first year of operation.
Applicants names were drawn from the
Challenge Cup by Commodore David Mead, with the
assistance of the members assembled to mark the
occasion and our Sailing Secretary, Natalie on
hand to record the sequence in which names were
carrying more than 70 people dodged the showers
to enjoy the annual Rally and Model Boat Race at
the Folly. The weather was kind for the later
arrivals enjoying a crossing in brilliant
sunshine, which held for the successful 'Sinking
the Pontoon' Party.
At least two
sections went under and thanks go to the
providers of snacks ranging from the favourites
of sausages and sausage rolls to exotic pizzas
and crackers with all sorts of delicious
toppings - not forgetting the French individual
Excursion to Arundells, Salisbury

of Sir Edward Heath's house in Salisbury Close
where twenty-one members of the Mind-Broadening
Section of the RSrnYC assembled in the Close and
divided into two groups for a tour of Arundells.
