The Ocean Globe Race

Recommended Posts

I trust that Auckland will be bidding to host this great event against Sydney, with our proud history of competing in the old Whitbread and facilities here it is a natural stop off-prior to the Southern Ocean.

Perhaps after waving goodbye to the AC the squadron would like to step forward as a host club.

I for one recall the hilarity and hijinks associated with the Auckland stopover parties back then (when most of the crews slept on board and werent bothered about rushing to the gym each day)

Could excite that summers sailing-remember the Whitbread big boats racing on our regatta day? The waterfront was packed-we havent seen that since.

Went down and saw them at Southampton pre start, a friendly lot and they will be here around Christmas and doing a Rum race with us -not entirely sure how serious the racing will be the bottoms did not look clean a day out ??

Half way here now -with girls first and third , the one that started with a dirty hull has pulled out unsurprisingly. Some good racing in mid fleet the Tasman will be interesting.
