Hi John,

Can you please confirm the details for this regatta.

 

Does anyone have a spare gooseneck fitting? mine broke and I havent got around to ordering a replacement yet.

I have this V5 gneek. It;s got that SS adjustment where the V6 you have had a plastic version.

From putting the V5 next to a V6 boat I see no measurement differences.

You're welcome to borrow it.

 

Sloop, they be the same or ???? any idea?

An update for this Saturday

 

Some DF95's are come out.

 

There has been a good response to this regatta with people new to radio sailing.

 

First we will have a season on setting the boats up by Mike and Greame from Kapiti Radio Yacht Club, they have been sailing the 65's for a while, so there will be be some handy hints.

 

Secondly I will go thru the simplified version of the Racing Rules i.e. the "Ten Racing Rules Commandments."

 

Then we will start some sailing, line and mark foy starts will discussions between racing.

 

And the all important last race for a bottle of Appletons.

The six the club brought with 75% sponsorship from the "ASB Showgrounds cost $272 and $282 delivered to individual members to get around the GST/import fees.
