Freedom got a great start at the pin along with String Theory and Exodus. Went well all the way down to browns island with Attitude catching fast.  String theory dropped their kite after browns with

It was a great sight to see this impressive looking fleet as we cruised past Navy Buoy.

Here is how Island Time's day went.   We left Gulf Harbour about 7:30am - a bit later than expected, not ideal. it was gusting over 40 at Tiri, so went out with deep reefed main and a working jib si

They are the old navy de-gaussing bouys, to stop warships attracting magnetic mines.

There are two of them. The outer (eastern) one is used as a race mark. But don't quote me that is the case for this race.

They are yellow, with a small post and a X on top.


Located close to the Penninsular (western) shore, at the southern end of the channel.

Position given at 36 deg 36.922'S 174 deg 50.653' E


I saw them on Thursday, so I'd be surprised if they aren't there now.

Note, all care, no responsibility with the lat and long, but the description of where they are is correct. The best game during the race is seeing who goes around which one, who isn't sure and goes around both and who misses the one thats a mark and goes around the other one.

Yes outer marker is all you need to round, however a few will do both

You won’t see them until your a lot closer than you will be expecting.
