Race 1; The Ponsonby Cruising Club Gulf Harbour Challenge - Saturday 10th October 2015

 

This is an addition to the series this year allowing the fleet to come together at the end of Race 1 in the shelter of the beautiful Fairway Bay inside the Gulf Harbour Marina. The start area has been set at Orakei to make it easier for participants not based at Westhaven. A highlight of the this event will be a sponsored happy hour, or two, and the presentation of specialty, limited edition, series shirts, to all series entrants. The facilities at Fairway Bay will provide a brilliant setting for a happy hour and barbecue dinner. A highlight on Sunday morning will be visiting the local farmers market, held at Fairway Bay.

 

Race 2 will start on the Sunday at mid-day.

Thinking of bringing Berenice up to do the R66 single handed sounds like a lot of fun.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

This year the series is a single fee, no need to individually enter all of the races. Nice to see BooBoo getting in on the action!

Right let's get the entries rolling. This year is much easier with just one entry fee. All of the course details are on the soloiq web site.

Well well well
Here we go again!!!
Little red tortoise will be there this year too!
It would be nice to see a few more small boats out there! There is solo and than there is SOLO... All of the big boys bugger off quite quickly so it would be nice to have another small boat to go against!!!
