There have been rumours about a get-together after the race.

 

Orakei Marina was mentioned.

 

Any more details about this?

We have rented the Westhaven events berth outside RNZYS for Saturday night. There is no official function planned but you are welcome to berth there or head down and have a few drinks after racing.

You are welcome to stay the night in the berth but please vacate before 10am. Please note there is an Alcohol ban in the Westhaven car parks. No drinks shall be consumed outside the pier gates.

If you are planning on berthing there and don’t already have an account with Westhaven can you please supply insurance details to josh@nz.northsails.com

Another great race from SSANZ.  Thanks to all those who give their time for us to enjoy an excuse to leap off the couch on a winters day....

 

The brief Y88 report:

 

Baltic 50, mint sailing conditions after the excitement of the 100 and a great way to end the Two Handed Series.

Congratulations to Nathan Williams on Slipstream for another faultless race, managing to carry his number one genny right through (I think)

Big ups to Leigh on Voodoo for a well fought second, picking the right headsail at the bottom of the run and grinding down then passing Sailor Moon and War Machine carrying no. 1's on the windy beat from Rakino to Motuihe.

 

Jacko on Sailor Moon lost time changing head sails but eventually passed the War Machine between Browns and Bean Rock. WM didnt help themselves with a crash tack to avoid a surprise starboard tacker, taking a 720 turn as a result.

The PredictWind Tracker screen shot video can be viewed at this linkhttps://youtu.be/yBiK6C1h8dM

 

Not quite such a good result for the 88s in the cruising division with Kristina 7th on h'cap and Blondie 12th.

Looked like a great day out there. I watched some of the fleet finish from Orakei wharf and took a few pics. There was a fair bit of outgoing tide making sure everyone had to keep working hard to the end!

Elly, looks like a fair bit of inverse mast bend, did something happen on the downwind leg?
