Been to check your mooring lines yet?


Recommended Posts

Doubled up mine and checked all the boats on moorings around me. Lucky I did as a couple had issues which would have caused trouble.  One boat had its stern bridal line wrapped twice around the rudder and that would have been the windward line. Was a bloody mission to sort out but better than having them break free and take us out.

Think its going to be blowing 50+kts straight down the Weiti river in the wee hours of the night, could get interesting.

Blokarting mission on the west coast tomorrow! Yeehaa.

Went to Westhaven friday arvo to check lines etc. 3 yachts (not launches) on our pier were loading up to head out for the weekend!!

I asked one guy if he had checked the forecast......"yea, don't think it'll be much" was his reply.🥴

Metservice did not raise wind forecast till Very late. All week they mentioned 15 knots. In fact this has been the case for about a month. We saw a few boaties fueling up yesterday 😕

Yep, noticed that. Still a gale warning when we actually have storm force. WTF!

Agree re Metservice this week, we had a lovely night race to kawau though, and return race yesterday with Squadron weekend party shifted back to the club, unanimous support for that call.
