Another great picture of YW's in the bay. From previous pictures I posted a number of us established that sail numbers had nothing to do with age. I would have a good guess at the "Cat" with what looks like grey sails is Nomad, owned/sailed by Tony Linklater. She was the only YW that had yellow sails with the blue band rather than white.
