I do enjoy capturing some real gems when scanning and digitising old archive material as I come across some treasures like the four Admiral’s Cup competitions South African teams competed in.
Today I will concentrate on the 1971 team, but sadly do not have a full team list available, so followers of this blog will have to glean that info from the photos used.
1971 was our first foray into the Admiral’s Cup, and a real eye-opener it was too.
Our three-yacht team was as follows:
Jakaranda – Bruce Dalling
Mercury – Gordon Neill as skipper
Omuramba – Ken Warr
There’s lots to read today – and enjoy the team pics too.
