Devonport Yacht Club: A Centennial History
Edited by Harold Kidd

Contains numerous photos throughout.

The Devonport Yacht Club is a true institutional part of the maritime heritage of Devonport. Situated on one of the most prominent waterfront sites of the Auckland Harbour it is indeed significant that this prime piece of land has been a shipyard for nearly a hundred and fifty years. It is doubtful whether any other yacht club in New Zealand can claim such a distinction.

Long before the Club was formed in 1905 the Devonport foreshore was the centre of the country's largest shipbuilding industry. Also this was the cradle for yacht racing in New Zealand as evidenced by some of the Club's magnificent trophies dating back as far as the 1870's. All the fascinating history leading up to the formation of the Club and its subsequent activities over the past one hundred years is now contained in this splendid publication with its wonderful illustrations.
