It's been there all ready to go for ages, so much so she could have been on the RNZ startline.

 

 

 

Really??? Can we see photographic evidence???

I cannot help but notice that there is no problem between us that cannot be solved by your departure !

I’ve got two Elliott 7.9’s for you to race against KM
They shouldn’t be too much faster than you.
Will we see you on the 8th of May then ?
You will need to enter on the 1st of April as it’s looking like we could run two fleets at this point and Napier hasn’t even been told how may we are sending them yet (no point worrying them about what they can’t change) but some may have to anchor off yet.

Yeap but I'm sure you've seen a 930 before. Mines just like those but in a slightly different colour scheme.

E7.9's in the RNI??  That comes as quite a surprise considering some of the 10mt minimum for the RNZ reasoning I was given.

 

Run 2 fleets??? what do you mean by that?

I’ve had way more than 30 tell me they are in prep mode already and others are coming out of the woodwork each week
Someone is going to misout

Be careful about not meeting demand if it's that strong. Look around at how many didn't only to lose longer term. 

 

Maybe push the late entry option to closer to kick off. That would allow easier entry for those 'on the waiting list' when the inevitable drop outs of those already entered happen. If you have set up for X number of boats and any on the waiting list have all their sh*t organised that should be simple enough to do. But if you do emphasize later (replacement) entries will only be accepted with all conditions meet, you can not piss around with 'I'll get it to you......' type time frames. With in XX days/weeks of kick off any boat wanting a now vacant spot MUST present everything completed at once and be ready for any inspection at a time of SSANZ convenience not the boats.

Numbers are physically constrianed due to space at Napier and to a lesser extent Wellington. No other reason

I think most know that but if demand is strong enough it will find options.

 

For example your smart dude in Welly is onto the trail of a demand driven possible solution. One I think is a most magnificent idea and would be absolutely brilliant for the event if it can happen. Whoever thought of that needs a big pat on the back, and a pat on something else if it comes off ;)

Entry in, look forward to seeing the other competitors.

Interesting having to have an AIS transponder (not complaining). Have been comparing the GME (cheap) and the B@G (have their gear).
