haven't some yachts qualified on the way to the race start?

 

Loose Goose was a Newark Val 31 trimaran which I was bringing from Auckland to New Plymouth. I was going to use her to enter the Solo Tasman yacht race, New Plymouth to Mooloolaba … and part of the requirement is to do 400 miles qualifying, which is why I was bringing her round.

Why don't you just email the organisers KM?

Let them know when and how you intend to the the Qualifying miles and get their blessing.

That why there are no misunderstandings and everyone is happy,

Well happy until you get slammed by a forty knot nor wester at 3 in the morning anyway. :twisted:

She's all good Willow. I never saw that cut-off date before and had a freaky second when I thought it maybe early Dec but the lads found I didn't need to freak. I'll be able to get a 500nm in by the end of Jan.

 

NW is fine, anything by straight West or East will work for me.
