Any chance there are some pictures of the clinker built, zulu-type yawl that was part of the charity article?
Not at present – I searched as best I could but could find no trace of any news photos or personal galleries showing a clinker built zulu-type yawl called Shaka. Is there anyone out there who can lead us to photographs of this interesting sounding boat?
The Henley Whalers – http://www.henleywhalers.org.uk – row and sail the same GRP American Beetle whaleboat as raced in the article linked to. Theirs is a very busy boat indeed, rowing weekly all year round, sailing frequently, and being trailed to events near and far.
