2019 SSANZ Round New Zealand race


Recommended Posts

Nigel and Cory got a new mast?

Why?

It fell down. Last year, or before that. Before the Trans Tasman solo.

I'm referring to the mast track issues they've had on this leg, on what is apparently a not old mast.

I could of course be badly misinformed, and happy to be correct if I am.

The problem with this event only getting coverage on social media is that it is preaching to the converted. Sailing as a sport is not really growing. If it had mainstream media coverage at least you are putting it out in front of potentially new people to sailing.

True, but is this a race to inspire newbies into sailing?

 

Cold water, no sleep, broken sh*t.

NZ Rigging built Katana’s new rig and Bart has flown down and sorted it.

Coppilia’s tracker isn’t working currently but they are going to try restarting it from the Uk

Arbitare is having to start late start due to a health issue

Re Arbitare: "Murray is on his way back to the island after being in hospital over on the mainland for two doses of IV antibiotics after developing a nasty infection (of coral spores in the sea water) in his leg, he has been given clearance by the Dr and is on his way back to the ferry to meet up with Dave and set off after the others :)"

It's more of an example.Be it the coastal, class champs or whatever. The more it's put in front of potential participants the better. I have had young guys crew for me who hated being rail bait and others loved it. The ones that loved it were all new so that's a good thing. We have to keep trying to get youngsters involved. Not everyone comes up through dinghy sailing.

Very interesting point of the race now, Krakatoa has the pedal to the metal but is getting wide

Looks like Titanium has decided to chase the rest and Coppilia has stuck to the left on the hope that the next change is coming from there.

YB need to tweak it so you can scroll thru the weather in finer detail. All a little to course at the moment.

You can scroll through the weather at 3 hr intervals. How much finer detail do you want?

You sure your not just having IT issues? PS, there is loads and loads of good material, straight off the race boats. Link on the SSANZ front page (to facebook)

It's not just a link to Facebook, the ssanz page shows the updates so that those who don't do Facebook can follow them.
