SSANZ EVOLUTION SAILS 100 - Y88 UPDATE. Whether the weather will or won't....

We have had fingers and toes crossed all week for wind to get back home for brekky in bed on Dads Day and it seems we might be lucky..

Current models fairly well aligned with breeze from Easterly quarter building from 7 knots up to, gusting 27 knots at midnight.

Shorthaul boats don't forget your liferafts or inflated dinghies.

Well they all got away cleanly. Minimal pushing the line at the gun. SE of 10 there abouts, seemed like it'll stay and should build a bit bit not too much. Some showers seen in the distance.

No dramas or good action to report really. Last seen heading East and getting along OK. Multis flying hulls easily so they were off.

Watching Charleston and even at pace when she gets a puff she accelerates bloody fast. Not too shy in popping up a hull either, but neither was Taiping when she dived into a dip behind a tacking 888.

A few Shorthaul boats didn't check the course board on starting and were heading for Motuora for some time but they are now heading for Little Barrier
Longhaul fleet sailing up the Coro coast
Multi fleet around LB and heading home already by the looks
Tracking here.

The tracker is showing some nice speeds so they must have some wind out there but it seems to be dropping away here over the last hour or so. Hope it holds in for the fleet or it could be a long night for many.

Any truth to the rumour that sudden impulse developed a furling spinnaker?


Meanwhile on faster coyote......
Was interesting for us when the furling line on the fro jumps off the furler. was instrumental in getting us from dead donkey last back into it. Time to drop and after a skid that shook the sheets off and we have to resort todoing a letterbox drop in a squall with a furler that's trying to knok me out. Fell back off the pace upwind. More downwind next time please.

Not us Col. Managed to get ours down before the squal, I think that may have been a certain Stewart with a very tight wrap.
