Worth celebrating that a Kiwi boat has won the 18 footer world championships for the first time in 45 years on Sydney Harbour ....

 

And after all that trying, we get first and second!

 

Well done to the boys on Honda Marine and Maersk Line.

 

Does that mean the next JJ will be sailed in Auckland?

To me this is our Americas cup! The Aussies, apart from being underarm experts in the protest room are also excellent sailors with a well funded and highly competitive fleet. So its more than well done, its against the odds and simply legendary!

Even better is that it was lived streamed for free, with camera operators and commentators who knew what they were talking about. The superfoiler guys could learn a lot from this crowd

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