First I should apologise.  Setting the course and times is very dependent upon the weather and the only thing I'm certain of with the weather is it won't do what I'm guessing.


That said, best guess is a north easterly kicking in later in the afternoon of around 15kts which should be just about perfect for a pre Christmas romp around the buoys with friends.  It will be very light earlier so we're hoping that doesn't hang around long.


This year we will have two courses, an 8.9nm course for the slower boats and 11.3nm for the quicker guys.



8.9nm:  From the start round Orakei Buoy to port, Rough Rock Buoy to port to the finish.


11.3nm:  From the start rounding Orakei to port, Saltworks buoy to port to the finish.



Both the start and finish lines are defined as a line from Westhaven tower to the outer distance mark (ODM).


Note that boats finishing to the north of ODM will be scored DNF.

Start times shall be signalled with number boards on the tower and we will endeavour to broadcast each start time on VHF ch77.  We expect to coordinate start times using GPS time so starting on your GPS time should work well.


Be aware people you are sailing under Collregs which do require a higher degree of caution while navigating in close proximity to other vessels.  There are also insurance implications so if close to other vessels, throttle back the racing enthusiasm, no one wants a damaged boat just before their Christmas cruise.


Any questions, please email me at mmulcare@xtra.co.nz

Hi Taylor


The boat will be at the mast gantry at Westhaven (end of the breakwater where all the YCs are) from about early afternoon, turn up no later than five. As the owner I'm not supplying food or drink, but if nobody brings anything I don't care either. There are $10? meals at the YC after plus cheap drinks.
