    mini 650 439

    Yes actually! I could afford it!!! Also being a Bakewell White I have the opportunity to use Brett's knowledge to improve the yacht to do what I want to do! It also makes a great entry yacht into the class. This yacht is the sister ship to Chris Sayers yacht built side by side. Very well thought out.

    Hi, I'd rather keep that too myself for now but I will say that there are plenty out there however its not just buying the yacht its organizing shipping ect that puts the price up by about another 15k

    mini 650 439

    Hi all, So I thought i best give you an update on what I am getting up too with my shorthanded sailing. After crossing the Tasman last year I made the decision to sail Atom Ant as with anything I do money was too tight and bring the yacht back was getting too hard. I wanted to keep up shorthanded sailing up, but doing that without a yacht isn't the easiest. So I made a purchase. I am going mini 650 sailing! With a lot of sorting out over email I have brought the Bake-Well White mini 439 which is only 10 days from arriving in New Zealand from France!!
  4. hey, have you still got this tube? if so what is the length?

    Atom Ant racing

    Today marks another huge mile stone in getting ready for doing the Solo Trans=Tasman yacht race. Atom Ant passed it's Cat 1 inspection with flying colors. This is a huge achievement not only for me but for everyone involved. Thanks to everyone, my sponsors and everyone that has given up their time to help get the yacht to where it is. Tomorrow I start the first part of my challenge. The delivery down to New Plymouth and then the start of the race! To quote my hero, the man that has inspired me to what I am doing today. "To win, you have to believe you can do it. You have to be passionate about it. You have to really "want" the result - even if this means years of work. The hardest part of any big project is to begin. We have begun - we are underway - we have a passion. We want to make a difference."

  8. Hi, I am looking for a couple of people to help me bring Atom Ant back from oz after the Solo Trans-Tasman. Offshore experience would be good but good sailing skill may also work. Details are still coming together. If interested Message me. Thanks
  9. HI, As a lot of you know the mighty Ant is heading to the West Coast to take on the Solo Trans-Tasman next month so I would like to sub let it for two months. If interest or know of anyone message me. Thanks Cory

    Atom Ant

    Unfortunately starting my qualifier was all I did!!! The autopilot failed 3/4 of the way over to Gulf Harbor. The Ant was loving the 30 knots though hopefully we can get it fixed and try it again next weekend!!!

    I was going to do white island but my entry has been declined because I am doing it solo. This is because I can't keep look out all the time. on their rule ever solo race in the would shouldn't take place. Doing my qualifier in December now.
