  1. Fair enough, annoying about your kite pole. We actually banana shaped a couple of poles on dad's twilight years ago and eventually changed the down haul setup which seemed to stop it happening. Yep Legacy's entry is in
  2. It's a good race to do on a townson
  3. Bit of a slow day out there for Legacy. Had a problem with the #3 when we came to pull it up 15 min before the start that led to filling that 15 min with pulling apart the feeder and ultimately swapping to the #2, rather than getting the kite set up. But started mid fleet and seeing some carnage happening around us and more breeze coming decided to hold off with the kite until we were at the NW corner of waiheke. By then it was blowing even more and we were keeping up nicely with boats around us flying extras, and with the boat being fairly new to us decided it wasn't a day for trying things o
  4. This is true, but the thought of the marinas having to keep their pontoons clean terrifies me, cos I know where the cost will be passed on to...
  5. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
