Welcome to Royal Akarana Yacht Club
Established in 1895 RAYC is the home of Blue Water Sailing in New Zealand
A very rare cannon belonging to the club has been stolen.
This cannon dates back to the 1900′s making it 114 years old and its value to the club is priceless. It weighs about 20kgs and has been on display for many years.
The cannon was removed from our front foyer within the last two weeks and has been reported as stolen to the Police.
If you happen to know of its whereabouts we would be very appreciative if it could please be returned ASAP. We will gladly take it back, no questions asked.
The photo above is of our second cannon – they were a pair.
Any information please email Andrew Brookland – firstname.lastname@example.org
