Was missing on Sunday.  Nearest safe substitute would be Flax Point yellow racing buoy, about 500m away.

Hi Guys

 

Have spoken with harbour master and mark is still missing so...

 

Amendment attached for this Sundays course - replacing Northern Leading Buoy with Rangitoto Race Marker.

 

Hope you all have a great race, and will see you at the club for a beer after.

 

Cheers

Marshy

Oh Goody!

 

We have just be advised that Motokorea Buoy is also missing - someone wants to make our life harder!
 
Anyhow please see amendment 2 - replacing Motokorea Buoy with a Laid mark in the vicinity of Motokorea for the start and finish mark for this sundays race.
 
Cheers
Chris

Looks like perfect weather for it.

 

So frustrating waiting for my repairs to be finished. I left the experts to it instead of building my own new boards, but now wishing I'd done both, 'cos I'd be sailing again by now!

3mm ply is no match for 110kg size 11 boots! Anyone know how to fix my foredeck?
