Think you're right Cam, the weather didn't pan out as what I saw suggested. Shame as it may have given CC a chance to pull back some miles.

Smithy would have to be happy at the moment. For some reason he didn't seem to rate his chances that high but so far the Marshall's been doing well.

I wanna see Pepe lite up. Knot quite her ideal conditions so far but given a chance I think she'll spark up real well.

How you getting that weather on screen?

yer i realized after reading my post i made it seem like they tacked again, but i meant they are doing funny things in their course, i.e. maybe they just sailed to the wind direction during the night not realizing they had changed course? or maybe its part of the bigger plan and they are working on getting their handicap lower! didnt cool change used to have a phrf of 8.0 or 8.1 a few years ago?

Just click on the windsock button at top of screen! :D
The crew on Marshall Law is a very handy sailor... might be making the difference

Cam and I flew out to see the boats yesterday off Kaipara Harbour. A lot further out than I'd expected (about 80 miles offshore) and the fleet spread out more than the impression you get looking at the little shapes on the tracker :-)

Anyway, we couldn't find the leaders but got a few of the ones closer to shore. It looked beautiful out there

Here's a sample, more on the SSANZ Facebook page

A lot of the crews had two on deck... but not the Truxton. Shane was driving while Skinner was having yet another sleep! I'm sure Skinner will tell a different story but we have the photographic evidence!

Great Pics. Man they have been lucky with the weather so far this year! I reckon once around egmont it will start to veer to the NW - should be a good ride to Wellington.
Damn bank account! Wish I was there.... :(

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

Weather is always just like the brochure isn't it?
We paid some extra money for a flasher brochure this year...

Seems to have paid off. With the pxts we are getting just imagine how good the next brochure will be!

Hmm - from Yellow Brick tracker at 3pm today Blink is doing 12 knots with 104.7 nm to go. Something tells me we may not get much sleep tonight in Welly...!
