Probably not so likely with the 88 Nats on.

You entered CC? I've seen a number of entries go past today but not you so far. Let me know if you have.

Thanks all for supporting and good to see some wind this year.

Results are under way, some late entries to figure out, but should be available soon.

Just a note about the prizegiving, I believe this has been put back from the published 18th as it's Easter weekend.

thansk RC... and devonport yc.... nice day for a sail....

the results show i was not man enough to put the big kite up off the start...the after north head when i got it up it was all too late...

very impressed how a y88 goes upwind with No.1 and full main ..flogging like a sheet in the wind and i still couldnt catch him..!! lost a bit too much ground when i changed down to No.2 behind motuihe...

and thanks bondi tram for luffing me 100m from the finish.. debatable being legal... as you went above head to wind..

never mind i shouldnt of been behind you in the first place hey..!

thanks for a great series and the tight competition. for my year of gently getting back into racing.

#1 wasn't really the right sail for the job. I wanted to change down on the reach from motutapu to motuhie but The Ross 930 surfboard was running me down and overtook me. I saw you battling away bare headed & thought that's not worth putting my beer down for. Doing a single handed headsail change is a real b!tch and costs a lot of ground - 88's are only allowed hanks :thumbdown: so persevered with the 1. Saw 18 knots true, was a bit flappy but wasn't much slower than the #2, just had to flatten the main right off & crank the back stay. You had a nice come back on the bondi surfboard :)
