For the Gulf Harbour race that doesn't actually go to Gulf Harbour now, one of the courses refer to No 1 Green Bouy and Piripiri yellow bouy.

 

The Auckland Transport "sponsored" map of racing bouys doesn't show either of these bouys

And I haven't been able to sopt a cunningly hidden list of race marks on the RYC website.

 

What and where are they?

It's even on the phone software Fish!

I can assure you its not on my phone. My phone doesn't have software. Its one of those crazy ones that just makes actual phone calls.

 

I think my problem was that other clubs refer to that mark as "Northern Long Bay Yellow", not to be confused with "Southern Long Bay Yellow", although I can also see why the same mark could be referred to as Piripiri yellow, once you understand that the Long Bay marine reserve markers are also geographically located near Piripiri Point.

 

May not be hard to find if you know where it is, but also not hard to seek clarification if you aren't familiar with the naming used.

Thank you for your help KM

I'd heard that 'Northern Long Bay Yellow' name used once before and wondered if it was the same mark, apparently so. Good to know they have other names and what those are, Thanks fella.

Thank you for your help KM. A pleasure.

 

 

As a FYI No1 Green doesn't show on NZ532 and you have to go to the finer detail of NZ5322 (??) to see it.  That surprised me a little.

the weather has not been kind to me trying to do the annual haulout, unless we get a sunny weekend (yes, ive seen the forecast) Voom wont make it.

Hell yes, me and D2 got saturated as we stalked her last weekend.

 

It was sad looking out into the harbour. Someone needs to show some mercy and put a few boats out of their misery.
