The best prize of all?
This was the pre race function at the Cape Town Lord Mayors reception in 1985,the prize is the only one given prior to the actual race,its the prize for the Best Prepared Boat,this to my mind is a major prize,its as hard to win as any other? We later saw Kaiamanzi (my home),a Lavraonos 39, in a new municipal marina in Cumana,Venezuela,instantly recognisable by the fact it still had its Harry Anders (sirus marine) braai on the back of the boat,click on the picture to read the text.
The boats owner,George Eglington, is being handed the Mainstay Spirit trophy by the lady mayoress Brenda Kriener at the farewell Blue Peter function hosted by her husband Mayor Sol Kreiner.
