The Louis Vuitton Cup

The Louis Vuitton Cup
was won by New Zealand on three occasions.

This yachting cup 
decided who would be the challenger for
the Americas Cup yacht race.

I took this photo back in 2013 at
The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron
where it was proudly on display
in the trophy room.
My husband was a very keen yachtie
and has been a member of the club for over 40 years.

I snapped this photo on the same day.
It is the Roll of Honour of members
who lost their lives in
World War 1 and World War 2.

I'm joining Gemma for

If you have something red to show
why not pop in one Tuesday and join us!

Thank you for your visits

Take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt

Dearest Shane,
Wonder what the connection to that name of Louis Vuitton is...
Your husband must have loved the water during his entire life!
Sending you hugs,

How interesting! And, of course, being a Louis Vuitton cup it comes in a gorgeous case.
