  1. You have to remember that simply changing the weekend won't work for some people. This has been on the calendar for probably quiet a few people for a while now and they will have organised other things for other weekends. I can understand the reasoning though. Predict wind is only showing 30 knot gusts averaging mid twenties for most of Saturday and Sunday. Iv found them to be reasonable for the past few weeks. I reckon let it pan out and see what happens.
  2. We should be there in the 780. keep us informed please!

    B&T 2 Handed series

    We're in on the revamped rafferty rules, can't wait..
  4. Went for a sail in town for a change... Ponsonby cruising club open day turned out a stunner!
  5. All thats changed in a years time! She has nearly all new deck gear, all of the electrics now work, squabs are being re covered and have been cleaned, c-board has been repaired, faired and painted, with the winch being fixed at the same time, She's practically a new boat, and the new paintjob will help! She's actually a really fun boat to sail on!
  6. Has to be a winner... not sure who would win. philstar or candela...
  7. had the combined weiti gh winter race.nice sunny 5-10knots. good close racing with it being abit too close at times. with a little bit of carnage! to put it lightly we were in the wrong and demolished the prod.. Wild thing was honking along and chasing a 45fter all the way to the finish. with whats news not far behind. But im sure we will get a write up form WT anyway.. even got some work done on the little 3.7 yesterday!
  8. Could be keen to come down with the r780 if i can convince the owner!
  9. Looking forward to the simrad.. Should be good!
  10. Hey guys, So my old man and I are looking at trailer yachts. Would it be too much to ask for a opinion? positives and negatives? which goes better etc etc There is both a rocket 780 and a Ross 780 on trade me at the moment, both of them we are looking at. Any thoughts much appreciated! Luke
  11. agree about the 780's. There is enough boats from both classes to get enough for each class. just a matter of convincing.
