  4. When Dad went to live onboard in 1986,I gave him my cat ,it was about 12 months old. Settled in well,poo in anchor well seemed to of come naturally, Dad would take cat ashore and it run up and down beach, do its thing, no lead and would always return. Fell off the yacht numerous times and straight to his bunk. Think over the 10 or so yrs the cat developed issue(salt water madness)When moved ashore we took cat in and yep it was like horse off footrot flats.Didnt take crap from local cats/dogs lasted till 18yrs old. The biggest complaint came from his friend who rafted up for the night.By

  5. There's nothing in the regs exempting classic yachts from lifelines under Cat3 And 1950 is the cutoff date

  6. I would prefer my company to be vaxxed, however probably not for the reasons most people think. I had my jabs, 12weeks apart, finished 2 weeks ago. Apparently that makes me good to go, I want to catch the bug sooner rather than later, the older I get the worse it looks for me. I don't mind a little mitigation strategy, masks and gathering sizes, but I want us all to be out and about and I think a billion a week of life support could be better used elsewhere. The problem I have with the non-vaxxed is that they will clog up the health system. People who need other treatments are going

  7. In a cruising context it’s a similar but different issue. If you mingle socially particularly on other people’s boat’s it’s hard to know if everyone else onboard is vaccinated. So if I’m invited to a gathering on another boat - should I stay or should I go? If it’s just me at this stage my instinct is to go ahead - because if I’m fully vaxxed then I’m protected, so what’s the worry? But if I’ve got the family inc kids who are <12 and can’t yet be vaxxed then I’m still pondering that… for example they might be mixing with unvaxxed families at school so no different to doing so

  8. I've never supported any team. I'll watch it if it promises to be interesting. But I am not participating, I'm nobody's coach, they haven't even asked for my opinion.

  10. Totally beyond me as to why Dalton & Co would feed from the hand of the regime that murdered this guy with impunity.

  11. Au contraire Armchair. TNZ chose to turn down the Council/Government $100m offer with a like and kind content Mark Dunfay kinda put another $80m on the table now with all the potential hosts running for the hills apart from the Evil Empire Dalton looks increasingly more of a greedy fool than a tall poppy. Personally I would much rather see the loot and resources poured into combating the appalling world leading youth suicide rate that we have here in what used to be the home of the Cup.

  13. Yeah it's an interesting story for sure. We visited suwarrow on our way through the pacific. No way I was missing out on stopping there. Hopefully one day the kids appreciate this photo of them by Tom's memorial.

  14. I think the Piedys are talking to Yachting NZ directly about a class dispensation for lifelines, as the safety they provide can more practically be achieved with harnesses, tethers and jackstays. I think it would be awesome to have a fleet of Piedys sending it up each year. The bay will definitely know when they arrive!
