Do we have a "go" for the RNI 2016? I have to plan how long it will take to fit my canting keel to the Marshall.

Haha.  Better start that project now!  And keep us up to date with how it is going!

 

Sounds like you're keen to go again?

Yup, very keen. Brilliant race last time. Really enjoyed it! Just need that oil price to go over $150 a barrel so my employment is guaranteed. Keel, bowsprit, A2, Fro, etc etc.. The list is endless!! Then I see yachts like Omega for sale with everything done for $220K and think sell the Marshall and buy that......... Not the same as a Ross 40 though.. :-).

Won't this be RNI 2017??? That gives you an extra year to get that canting keel.

 

We at RPNYC are working on another 2-handed Central Triangle, scheduled for 2016 if you're that keen to do a big race in 2016 though.

Yes Deb is right, RNI race is scheduled for 2017 and we also hope to run a RNZ race in 2018. there will be a longer 2 handed race next Anzac weekend (2016) as well which can be used as a qualifier for RNI.

I think there's talk of a fully crewed round North Island race in 2016 too

Wow! Sounds great! Not quite as keen on the fully crewed one. Too hard to get a good crew together, but the two handed ones sound great! Lots coming up! Bring it on!

great to see all this getting planned and talked about .... real keen on RNZ, on Oracle or something else by then. but isnt solo tasman in 2018 too?. bit of a clash there or is the thinking that those mad enough to do the tasman solo wouldnt want to do RNZ?..  what about 2019 for RNZ. I don't think i have ever planned that far ahead in my life..!!

One more thing to throw into the mix - In 2019 there is possibly going to be a Tall ships race around NZ to celebrate an anniversary (no idea which one) of Capt Cook. Other boats should be able to join in.

I reckon RNZ is HARDER than the Solo Tasman. Although not solo for RNZ I guess...

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
