V356 The "Sagres" Portuguese entrant, Torbay to Lisbon Race
a photo by the New Zealand born photographer Noel Habgood FRPS

The Sagres was built in 1937 in shipyard of Blohm & Voss in Hamburg and named the Albert Leo Schlageter. She was the third of four ships built by the German Navy including the Horst Vessel (now the US Coast Guard ship, Eagle). and the Gorch Fock (now the Tovarishch of Ukraine). A sister-ship, Mircea, was also built for the Romanian Navy. During World War II she was taken to Bremerhaven shipyard after damage from a mine and captured by the U.S. forces in 1945. The ship was given to Brazil in 1948 and sailed in as a training ship in the Brazilian Navy under the name Guanabara. In 1962 she was purchased by Portugal purchased to replace the old sail training ship Sagres.

above - identified on the reverse as "Ethel and Ester Hoddinot" this may be an incorrect identification as these twins were born and lived in New Zealand. These children may however be another set of twins from the Hoddinott family. Alternatively the photographer Thomas Attwood later settled in New Zealand and may have used his carte de visite cards in New Zealand.
