Chains Ropes & Anchors ANZAC 150

Recommended Posts

I think we maxed out at about 15, no speed record for sure. More breeze than we thought though, so great weekend away.

 

Thanks very much for the sponsorship, i was lucky enough to walk away with $350 of vouchers in my pocket!

 

Pity i then fell out of my dinghy and i dont even know where my pants are now or whose clothes i woke up in!

We forgot to bring a watch, late for the start. Not good.

 

We went out to sea to try and get the easterly first. Voom was well gone by the time it came. Not good.

 

Close race with Tigre had to laugh as they fell in a wind hole meters away from the finnish. Very good.

 

Forgot to bring oars and had to use the 9.9 outboard on the 2m long inflatable. Not good.

 

Good selection of sausages by the comitee which goes really well with lots of rum.  Very good.

 

Dynamite had the best speaker war. Very good.

 

Good times good company, all in all very good.

This was our first 2 handed race and ill have to say that it was a blast. The weather meant that it was a bit of a slog bringing the boat to and from Auckland but I think it was worth it. I found 2 handing really enjoyable and the race was really fun.

 

Thanks heaps to everyone who made it happen, chains ropes and anchors for the fantastic prizes and all the other yachties who made us feel welcome. The prizegiving was a bit of a surprise, one look at the box of rum and I knew we were in for a good night :)

 

This event is on our calendar for next year and I will be trying to encourage as many tauranga yachts as I can to join us.

Any ideas for next year--courses with a destination of Great Barrier --ANZAC is mid week next year so we need to plan for another great event and get more boats --longer courses -250/350 miles ???

Gutted we missed it but my crewmate is not currently a well man.

 

Guess you will be doing the 2 handed series this winter then Bazza?

Dunno, maybe little barrier to port, poor knights to starboard, red mercury to starboard, korapuki to starboard, finish at abercrombie? Call me soft if you like but I'd be much more keen on a 250 mi race than a 350.

 

We are planning on being cat 3 next year so will be able to enter the longhaul division.

That's no good.

 

Dunno about the 2 handed racing down here, we are pretty committed to the fully crewed series and I would probably find myself suddenly single if I was out racing every weekend. I'll certainly come out when I can.

Pretty sure they get progressively longer, the next one is probably 200 followed by a 250 RNI qualifier the year after that. But I'm guessing you know that already.
