Ariki A3 being relaunched today, Okahu 2pm
Posted 29 April 2018 - 11:18 AM
Anzac Day I got to watch Rainbow, Rawhiti and Thelma slug it out, all old school gaffers like Ariki. The 3 of them made the last AC look like sh*t with regards to style, grace and quality of racing. And they were only 3 of 24 odd classics. The winner was a smaller one with a name like 'Jonquil', apologies for spelling. It came past us like a frecking skiff, it was flying.
Say what you will about the latest WizzBang 65 and the fancy it'll be smothered with but as a visual pleasure it's not even in the running with most of the classics.

it was at the "marine room" princes wharf, next to the maritime museum
much bigger affair than thought it would be
Ariki will stayed moored at the museum on piles specially driven in for her
apparently without any winches
it will take 6 people to haul in the main for a gybe
life is short
without fear or prejudice
