Was that you that stopped and helped them out Jon?  Only had quick convos with Paul today he said someone from SSANZ came and gave them a hand to get the gear back.

I was on the Navico Boat that responded to their initial call to Coastguard. The  a RIB came to help, and after making sure they were OK we left the scene. At that stage the police were en-route to scene .

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

Thanks for that  IT.  Couple of guys, one of them at least from SSANZ jumped on and helped retrieve everything without having to cut away the rigging which was much appreciated as it's only a couple of months old.  Sorry I didn't catch their names when talking to Paul.  Everything rigging was replaced this year in a big overhaul apart from the chainplate bolts as careful inspection showed no issues.  Guess what?  They will all be replaced now!  Shakedown race did it's job nicely.

No problem. We were on a training course. I volunteered to go over and give you a hand, but skipper wasn't keen. Sorry.
Pleased to hear the rig is ok!

Serena, the Thompson 38 has a video of them sending it off the start (on FB, Kraken Yachting), they have a red flag flying from the backstay. Some kind of start line incident?

Wasn’t me it was Neil Hilder ( Tickled on here ) he’s our chairman.
They were out in our new RIB ( first trip ) it’s ex Doyle Sails and is going to be our safety boat
The boats on charter to an international team for the 49ers worlds and Neil was handing it over to them
So it seems to work as per requirements, amusingly the guy that will mostly drive it was on SMU

Well thanks so much to Neil! Having expert help meant it didn't have to be cut away. New rigging and mast is solid so would have been a shame.

What good timing for handover. Funny that the boat helped the guy who will normally drive it🤣

Great to hear that the new SSANZ RIB was put into action - and with great effect. That Neil bloke is pretty handy to have around!
