SSANZ 2020 Lewmar Triple Series

Quick question for those doing the Baltic 50 coming up.

The course sheet shows the last leg going back round Motutapu and Rangitoto to starboard, the SI only says Rakino to port then Finish

I don't race Auckland but do take an interest in this series as a possible future mission.

To me it looks shorter to go the north side of Rangitoto to get back to Auckland.

What am I missing?

p.s. well done those that managed to stick it out this weekend, had to be better than sitting at home waiting for the weather to clear.

The maps are indicative, the wording of the SI's is what counts.

Race Report. Shimmer. Best Ssanz ever for Shimmer (not hard as this is our first season) perhaps the opposite experience to Deep Purple we are  racing my family caravan a 1980 timber Townson 34.

Was out on the water yesterday and saw Deep Purple racing in a bit of breeze. What a little rocket ship. So far ahead of the rest of the fleet they may as well have been in a seperate division.

Race report - Deep Purple Tough day at the office. North easterly of 25/35 knots, extremely rough and first mark 25 miles to windward was always going to be tough for a 25' 600kg traileryacht in

Yes, you're right.  It's about 1nm shorter on the outside, iirc. 

In previous years they have the finish line at Isinglington Bay where a raft up and celebration occurs. I recall at the briefing that the committee were to decide if that would happen closer to the date. So there might be an ammendment yet.

The map could possibly be preemting that... or an edit from last year's map just extending the existing line to Resolution.. or an oversight.

Well spotted.

Yeah noticed that too. Pending any changes, rangitoto/motutapu is not a mark of the course, you can leave it either side

Well spotted team

Great life lesson there, “always read the fine print, never trust the pretty pictures”

No call been made on finish location yet, but my pick would be Resolution Buoy again ( saving the gathering for our next event on the beach at bottom end on the 10th October)

Its .9nm shorter past Rangitoto light or 10% shorter so the only reason you wouldn’t go that way is if it was a light easterly with holes in the rangi channel perhaps

No, SSANZ has stated there are no other weekends available.  We can't race on Saturday or Sunday due to level 3 rules, so race 3 will be abandoned.

We could probably comply with social distancing, and number of people in a bubble, but under level 3 sailing is not allowed.

What he said

We couldn’t change the weekend and remain part of the series due to the possibility that it wouldn’t suit some as per NoR

We considered a race that wouldn’t be part of the series but that’s really hard to fit in

We hoped that they may go L2 Saturday night then Sunday was on as we could delay the start.

You will all just have to do the Chains Ropes and Anchors Enduro on the 8th October, we are looking at giving a discounted entry to anyone that was entered in Saturday’s race
