Gezzzzz.... for someone you don't want in the race, and reading the guide were quite disparaging about my boat and boats like mine, I have now received an extraordinary number of emails telling me about it. I even got one to a email addy you should't know exists.

 

Maybe it's time you do a email list cleanse.

Very tough race not to be underestimated, seriously looking at it, a few ducks to line up first. At least our boat knows the way already :thumbup:

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.

Hmm can't be any that have been around twice in a race. Will Mara be going?

No boat or skipper has been around twice
As for Ma’ara, BooBoo wants me to make a truck racing division with him, management isn’t keen on me taking her nice cruiser and Rogue is in a different ocean yet
Also we don’t have any down wind or light air sails, but the heat pumps make it tempting after seeing icebergs below Southland, no that’s right it was Solander Island, but it did look like a dirty berg when it came over the horizon and it was sure cold enough

11 Entries so far!  Keep then coming.  A wise man (not that wise really, just thinks he is) told me rum tastes better in Stewart Island.  Lets go see.

I think there might still be a couple of other entries out there.  Maybe including one that went around last time.

 

In 3 days time it will be a year since we started the RNI.  Maybe the unpleasant bits of that race (not that there were very many) are fading a bit in my memory...

 

It also occurred to me today that we would not have wanted to be off NZ's west coast this week.....that very same thought was also had by my RNI & potential RNZ co-skipper!  And probably by a few others on the entry list!
