  1. Googling for young rocket 8.4 rather than just young 8.4 will find you a bunch more info. I think I remember a thread on here, and a similar one on sailing anarchy with various history on these and the other young rockets. You may find some of the specs by trawling through those?

    Yep just installed my b & g ais unit and seem to remember seeing in the manual it won't take GPS info from a plotter/other source, only from its own antenna. Definitely sounds like duty free is worth trying a new antenna.
  3. I'm thinking about it. Have quite a full calendar as it is. Pretty decent turnout entry wise so far considering the last 3 Kings race had 8 monohulls and 2 multis.
  4. I was just reading a transcript of an interview with Rob fyfe, ex ceo of Air nz and now on the board of air canada. He's suggesting the airlines expect air travel to be impacted for another 5 years.
  5. If you're looking at soon I'd be a bit wary of covid associated risks. Could easily end up with things changing in Fiji, a lockdown blowing out time frames, border closures making it not possible to come and go etc.
  6. So we can add to the randoms wandering westhaven, getting in the way, and generally terroizing the bertholders? You might be one of the few who uses it to get to westhaven, but surely it's going to lead to serious high speed, lycra clad traffic through the boardwalk?
  7. Don't have an answer for your question, but I just renewed my phrf and it was way faster than the ynz website said it might take... only took a day or two.
  8. A small but interesting piece of info, around 3 or 4 years ago the owner of brass tacks approached Richmond yacht club members looking for a partnership arrangement similar to what young entertainer recently suggested on this forum (share the running costs for use) which was taken up by a group of young Russian friends who came to a few of the club beach bbqs etc. They seemed very enthusiastic and had joined the club via the Friday night learn to sail programme. I remember at one of the club bbqs they flipped their dinghy as they were pretty new at it all.
  9. I phoned the boss on Monday morning at 8am as we were still off whangarei to say I wouldn't be coming in that day.
  10. I was on that townson. Was a long slow race but we worked pretty hard. It suited us in the end. Iirc the race started Thursday, and prize giving was scheduled for the Sunday night. But at the appointed time I think only Vodafone was finished - the rest of us were still out there.
  11. Personally having often sailed on small boats in this series, I'd vote for small boats starting first. These are long races and not like the ones from other clubs. Everyone has to deal with other boats being around, and it means you finish earlier.
  12. Legacy is in. Can't wait!
