Wouldn't it be cool to have something like this on our calendar.

Yes that would be seriously epic.

Closest thing we have is the Solo Series, http://www.soloiq.org.nz/

So lets all get behind it and maybe one day it could grow to an event like the Figaro.

Im going to give it a go in the Sun Fast 3600.

Will be an epic summer. Where'd you find the artwork? Sites coming along too.

Who's a goer for this? First weekend is a two race escape to Fairway Bay for a happy hour, feed and farmer market day breakfast followed by a race back to Orakei. Ponsonby CC running these two races.

Anybody have a boat I can borrow?  

 

I'm saving up but not there yet and the kids trailer sailor doesn't meet the requirements (Category A or SRI of 1 or above)

Big Bickies would be just the go! Lot of boat for the coin.

..yeah... but I'd rather the 9.2 than an IOR.  Last time she was up for grabs I was tempted but...

Well it's not like I'm sitting around dreaming about being out - I mean, I'm out racing at least once a fortnight.  Just not on my own boat.  Which is cheaper.  Really, until I want to go single handed or take the kids cruising in the summer, I'm winning :-)

 

So Ray, how much for BB?  I hear Scarlet Fever is going out ;-)
