Based on those numbers I have my sealed envelope of winners and hard done by handicaps before they start.
Its a very good fleet still. Best of luck to all.

Just had the heads up that one of the smaller boats need a co-skipper.
This isn't a race for crew to just make up the numbers but a singlehanded race in relays.
If you have the desire, the time and the skills, send me your details and I will forward them on.

Had the sad news that Red Line isn't going to make the start.
They got as far as New Plymouth but have sailed back to Nelson, Stu will fill you in on the details if he wishes.

Your always up against it preparing for an event like this and most don't appreciate that it really takes a year of planning to do this type of event.

The crews I expect to shine through are the ones that have had a crack at this type of event before.

But we all have to start somewhere and the key to this event more that anything is firstly you must finish.

Hi
Due to lack of prep time (due to loss of the Mast) my crew bailed in New Plymouth having not been out of Tasman Bay in a 930. Ideally we would have done a few races two handed, and our pre qualification miles in plenty of time.

Last summers build up to the Central Triangle was much more organised, and we both put in some miles as a team before the event. We did quite well and I really enjoyed the challenge of that event, and the RNI was a logical progression from that. Spent a couple of days trying to phone up/fly in a replacement. IF you were one of the guys I phoned, you'll know who u are. Gutted to be not doing it, as have put in a massive effort replacing the keel a new rig, and a reasonably competitive sail wardrobe in time for this event.

So if anyone loses a crew due to the long lost aunt dropping dead, and or otherwise make themselves un-available, I'd love to drop in as a standby replacement!!

Good luck Geoff/Jono I'll be following the race virtually if not in reality.

Cheers
Stu

Stu - really sorry to hear you have pulled out after all that effort that you have put in. Sometimes it takes more guts to pull out than carry on - well done!
In the long run it might be a good thing - as you know you need to put the time in beforehand and for lots of reasons that did not quite work out for you lately.
What a shame, we were so impressed with what you achieved in the Central Triangle - you will build on that and we think you will be able to put together a really good campaign next time.
We too looking forward to following Jono and Geoff on the Midnight Express.

Best wishes and will catch up for a beer soon. Off in the cruising boat Nonstop this weekend to annoy the cod at Durville.
Cheers
Pete and Ellen
