Anyone doing this 2up saw the ad tonight looks interesting with the staggered start.

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.

I saw that, big Ups to Akarana for looking at the market and responding to it, very well done that team.

 

As I never saw that drop to 9mt and short handed option coming or indeed possible with the growing analness infesting race management, I've made other plans bugger it. But I did make a call or 3 last evening sussing to see if I rushed my boat back from Aussie early who would be up for a jaunt to Noumea. There is good interest.

 

The gist of the event is all is here (maybe a link on the landing page would be handy ;) ) - http://aucklandnoume...acht-race-2018/

 

 

If we arrive on the start line who will come to play with us?  I have spoken to many of you lurkers, with similarly smaller ones like mine, on this subject and a lot of you have expressed interest in doing something like this.

 

Life is short, now is the time.

I like the sound of being somewhere warm next winter, hell of a party shaping up too. I have spoke to friends in Melbourne who are planning to do the Oz Noumea which starts at the same time. Mostly average 40 footers from there by the sounds of things.

I am planning to run another Offshore Medical Course prior to the race next year. I'll liaise with Sally and Suellen. 

Once date is set I'll let you all know

All welcome to attend

Cheers

So who is thinking about this one?

 

Anyone want to try prove, but will ultimately fail, their 30 is faster than mine? :twisted: :twisted:  ;-)

Depends how much windward work there is :)

 

The cruisers and little boats start on Wednesday, the faster teams on Friday... errrr.. maybe the Saturday.
