Images in the set

  1. Jock Carson and his 'monster' surf boards c. 1953. Tauranga has a long history of surf board production, some of which were made out of plywood in the 1950's and 1960's.

  5. P-Class racing, Te Awanui | Tauranga harbour.  The P-Class was designed by New Zealand civil engineer, Harry Highet, as a simple vessel in which children and young people could learn to sail. The first example appeared at Onerahi near Whangarei on New Year’s Day, 1920. However it was not until Highet and his family moved to Tauranga in 1923 that the full potential of his design became apparent. Soon a fleet of a dozen or so boats were racing each weekend on Tauranga Harbour. The P-Class was initially known as the “Tauranga Class”. Boats carried the letter “P” on their sails, to indicate they were primary trainers.
