Yacht Elangeni,J683,at Peters Place,Brasil

Elangeni,a Durban yacht and sponsered by a hotel of the same name, had entered the Uruguay Race from Cape Town and like many found not enough wind to finish the race in the alloted time,so pulled out and retired at Rio de Janerio,here she is pictured with her race crew at Peters Place,Ilha Grand,sixty miles south of Rio and on her way back to Cape Town.

Hi Roy

My name is Edwin Collingridge, I was the young kid aboard "Elangeni" that is me reading a book on the coach roof, way back in 1985. We must have met at the time I am sure. Any other photos?
