“Talking Sailing” From My Archives. It’s Your Turn to Help Please

by Richard Crockett

During my scanning and archiving sessions I have come across many an interesting old pic, but sadly many don’t have captions or any information about them attached.

So today I am asking followers of this blog if they can assist in identifying the selected pics, or if there is some info available in the caption, giving more details.

Your assistance in this regard would be most welcome.

This Pic dated I am looking forward to hearing from you.

1969 False Bay Yacht Club Opening Cruise: There was a rollicking fresh breeze to speed the bonny boats who turned out in Simons Bay to launch the summer season of F.B.Y.C. Can anyone identify the boats?

Not sure the occasion – but could be Agulhas Race trophy winners.
Extreme left is John Martin. 3rd left looks like Pete Thomas.
Bertie reed in front.

Is this maybe Dearne ??

The pic was taken on 1 March 1963. Can anyone identify the boat?
