Could this year be the most interesting coastal for some time? 

With a MOD 70 approaching NZ , Frank Racing and the new  'cruising"  cat from Roger Hill and the Trimaran from Vietnam 

certainly the multihull boys & girls will be having fun.

So what quick Monohulls will be lining up.....

Could a Mod 70 get to the Duke in time for lunch?

 

Used to be the record setting boats targeted getting in in time for dinner...

Maybe afternoon tea... 5 hours at 25 knots gets you there at 3...

 

The muiltihulls will be awesome to see.  The highlight of last years race for me was the flyby of ETNZ. that was awesome.

 

I'm lining up two handed for probably my slowest coastal ever on my wifes new cruising boat.

Yes I had forgotten that flyby at pace - it was truly brilliant, and yes another Orma from across the ditch hopefully.

But back to real yachts  ;-)  I see that Wired is getting a new keel and maybe we might see a smaller Bakewell -white design that was exported years ago back soon -that could spice up the smaller classes.
