Yeah its sure looking like a driftathon. Should be some sea breeze in the afternoon I hope before the light SW fills in.
The sunfast is fully loaded and ready to go now. Been a big few weeks of race prep! Now looking forward to getting out there.

Forecast is looking slightly better this morning but still a bit slow

If your coming out on the water to watch the start please give the yachts plenty of room as with a incoming tide and little wind plus being two handed they are going to have enough on without dodging spectators

If you want a good view from on land then come out onto Devonport Wharf, lots of room but the Navy guns are very loud
You should be able to watch the start on the Wharf then walk up to north head to have the fleet sail past below you

What's happen to Pahi's tracker. Saw them start. S34 with a prod and massive Code0 captures your eye.

Nothing at Tiri atm.

Choosing a boat based on resale value is a bit like picking a girlfriend based on how desirable other guys might find her after you break up.

That code zero is huge. I borrowed it one weekend and it was only a little too small for bp

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

I'm sitting in a tower awaiting my flock to return and it's a magnificent day to be afloat.

 

They should be having a damn nice day...even if it's a little soft in the wind dept.
