Then cruising 60nm and shorthaul 100nm starting Friday arvo with finish at GB
Multis can organise themselves as usual.
The key will be to get all yachts finished by mid arvo Saturday then lighting and generator again for a Smokehouse prize giving.
What we need to know is there demand for a long race like this ?
Or should we just run a shorter format and run it the weekend prior so them that wish can cruise back ?
Easier the next year as it will be a Thursday holiday so we can go back to a similar format to last year.
Either tell us here or contact one of the committee while it's fresh in your mind

Whats not Cat3 Bazza?

Bugger all probably. We just had the liferaft serviced, which turned out to be eye wateringly expensive but apparently normal. Probably just a flare pack and the inspection. We wanted to try the short race for our first ssanz one anyway. We would've like to do the auckland tauranga race but with all the work that we put into repainting the deck and doing a few other mods we just couldn't be bothered with the extra bits to get cat3.

So we decided to jump on the committee boat and help out (hinder) on the committee side of things for a change. It was a real push to get this race sorted straight after the round north island and guys like Jon Henry to name one, really have put in a huge effort.
A volunteer that has pretty much been full time running yachting events so far this year.
Anyway it sure was another epic weekend. The night couldn't have gone any better.
Huge thanks to chains ropes and anchors for the support once again.
As already mentioned in this thread we are trying to decide the format for the next one. Thinking it might be time for a much longer race but with some shorter courses as well. Feel free to post any comments here. As usual we just want to run a race that people actually want to do.

Would definitely be keen for a longer race next year. 300 - 400 maybe..... something long enough to force you to get into a bit of watch system and rhythm. So long as its still a Cat3 race.
Finishing at the Barrier is definitely the way forward.
How about something like Little Barrier to port, Poor Knights stbd, Great Barrier stbd, The Aldermen Islands stbd, Channel Island port, Little Barrier stbd, finish in Abercrombe. Thats around 300 miles.

I reckon the year before the RNI should be a qualifier length, the year after a shorter length (like the plan for this year), so maybe a BIG one the year in between. Next year.
(Ill sort out a boat and then i can have an opinion...)
