Bribie Island Classic Boat Regatta
Here are a few photos from the Bribie Island Classic Boat Regatta
(22/23 May 2004).
Here is Miles Porteous' Rogue,
loaded with Miles, Amanda, and two kids.

The remaining pictures are of My 16 year old son
Janette which was launched in "rowing
and outboarding" trim only.
The delays in getting her completed to sailing
stage are due to the fact that he is working at McDonalds after
school to pay for the boat. He has done a fine job of building
her, and she drew a lot of attention at the regatta.
The outboard-powered shots show Geoff and my oldest
son, Geoff, and one of me with a tiller extension. The motor
is a Honda 2hp at low power setting.
Welsford designs were well represented at the regatta
- 1 Janette,
Whaler, 1 Rogue,
and 1 Houdini.
