The photos are taken in Wellington, the Marlborough Sounds, and the Pauatahanui inlet at Porirua.
Among the yachts are Rona, Astral, Yvonne, Kotiri, Queen Charlotte, Raukawa, Isca, Wairere, Wairere II, Viola, and Ailsa.
Centreboarders include the Idle Alongs Lonesome, Vampire and Rebel; and X-Classes Lavina, Ariki, Jean ans June. The 14-footers Advance, Rob Roy, and Impuence are all different designs.
There are also some great pics of shed parties, club parties, picnics, and aircraft (Norton joined the air force).
Norton Atkinson is the dashing fellow who appears to have had quite a few girlfriends. Any other help in identifying individuals is welcome.
