Nick Shorter's Falcon 24, Conchita, Northcote Point, Auckland, New Zealand - updated July 10, 2018  

November 11, 2013. David Shorter checking in as the new owner of Conchita. Here is his email (minor edits)


Just found your site. We brought Conchita off Dan Hayes in 2012. She is now kept at Northcote Point and is actively cruised around the gulf. Had a great trip out to the barrier reef last xmas and plan to try do the same this xmas.

July 10, 2018. Nick Shorter checking in as new owner (a family affair?), and with Google's help, an 'overview' of Conchita's sailing homeport/sailing area.

Hi Ron,

Just wanted to update you on the current status of Conchita for the dolphin24.org site. Now owned by myself and is
currently on a swing mooring at Sulphur Beach (Northcote Point)


Postscript Haha, yes, a family affair indeed. She's a good wee boat but I need to add a bit of ballast to get her lower in the water






The following is our historical record of Conchita to this point. She belonged to Daniel Hayes and was kept on Okahu Bay, Auckland, New Zealand. On April 18, 2012 Giles Grimston reported that the Trademe ad has been pulled and replaced with a Sold notice. We are standing by for the new owner to check in.


June 2, 2011. On March 20, 2011. DFI (Downunder Field Investigator) Giles Grimston (Summer Wine) brought this to our attention. We are trying to get more information. Here is the ad and photos from the ad, also the updated link to contact info and more photos.
