I see that the Y88's and F1020's have their own start and generally do the shorthaul course, i.e. for the 50 and 60 they do shorthaul.

 

For the 100, they do the small boat course, substantially shorter than the shorthaul course

 

Is that a typo / error?

 

Or is this stocking the 88's verse Ross boats argument and the 88's can't handle the jandal?

 

For the other shorthaul boats, the 88's and 1020's make up a good number of boats to play with. It would be a shame they do a different course for the 100.

Some 1020's and 88's are still planning on doing the Shorthaul div but the 1020/88 div is following discussions after the Anzac race and in response from owners wanting to play as a group and struggling to find crew for the 100, anyone serious about doing something longer in the future should be looking at doing the longest possible option, but the thinking behind these changes is to get the highest possible participation

The other major change is that Cat 3 is now only required by the longhaul fleet and only for the 100

No reason for anyone to not be there now.

As Jon says we are working with the classes and associations to try and put on races they want to do and encourage more boats to get out there. Yes it does take some boats out of the Shorthaul 100 but they not racing in the same division anyway. 

 

Another big change this year, we are keeping the same order of 60, 100, 50 so the shortest race last but then finishing at Islington Bay to allow boats to stop for a raft up or what ever they want to do. So get your friends to bring their boats out too and lets make a night of it.

 

Everyone is welcome to raft to the Sun Fast for the after party!

If you put the rafts in the shallows on the sides you should be able to walk from Rangi to Motutapu

Make sure you leave room in the centre for the committee boat thou
