Almost exactly 120 years after leaving Auckland for Wellington on board the Elingamite on 16 October 1900, Rogue is back in town, and sitting in Wayne Olsen’s Horizon Boatyard shed, set up straight and true next to her initial 1892 competition, the Logan Gloriana. (Contemporary accounts of those encounters, and Rogue‘s Wellington adventures, can be found at Rogue‘s history.) A rematch is in the offing.
