This weekend 5th & 6th May will be the Pre 2000 regatta at The Lakes, Tauranga.

 

The only criteria is the hull has to be designed prior to 2000.

 

I have knocked of 14 years dust off my old "Drumboat" design, boy have the rigs and sails improved, so the rigs off the V8 have been fitted.

 

The last I heard there about 15 entries.

 

Here she is at the 2004 Nationals in Wellington and the last time it was sailed.

Back when the IOM's looked like real boat hull shapes! Love the flare in the back end.
