The weather is looking OK unless some are planning on finishing at midnight in which case drifting could be in their future.

looks like there is going to be far to much wind - a good 2-4 knots for the whole race would suit me.

Hopefully Tiri Navy buoy is still in place. Used by Smallboat and Longhaul courses.

We will have to look out for two unlit green shipping markers in the Rangi channel on the way home. No.1 and No.15.

Here is a list of known missing or unlit marks:

No I don't have any more info.
I don't think the Tiri Navy buoys go missing very often.
Plus there's two of them, so a good chance that at least one will still be there! :D

And they are off.

All clean starts with the Sporties and Multis stepped up the game from R1. Both fleets had boats within 100mm of the line and at pace when the gun went off. The X flag was twitching a few times :)

Borderline was at full pace and nailed the line dead spot on, man she was flying and looking damn smart doing it. Looked around to see Taiping flying a hull big time and thought...Opps here we go..... but she was fine. Stealth Mission looked mighty fine as they wound her up. 888 struck a imposing site and good to see her back. The multis got the best wind at their start so put on the best show..... bar the R40's trying to fly A sails when they probably shouldn't have been.

Nice but cool 10-12 from the SSW saw the fleets disappear pretty quick. If the weather holds it'll be a glorious day for them all and probably a quick trip.
