  1. As above will be very interesting to see who fronts, maybe every other club is missing something Cant see how it’s classic if it’s never happened before Want to get numbers “ then don’t put obstacles in the way - make it cheap, use racetrack, have a party afterwards. Once it’s established and classic then it will stand on its own feet, just my thoughts but I could be wrong, hope I am for their sake Maybe it has something to do with it being on first of April
  2. Spirits Bay is also a good anchorage if it’s SW and your waiting for it to go more W
  3. West coast every time ‘Get to top and then only need a two or three favourable days and your there East coast you will get hit somewhere
  4. Never seen one there but there’s usually one in Man-o-war bay Waiheke this time of year There maybe a skip on the coromandel wharf ? It comes under Waikato Regional Council and TCDC

    VHF radio help

    If you’ve replaced the aerial and radio and still not working can only be power ? are you receiving on any channels ? Try listening on 60 or 62, there should be endless chatter of trip reports with Coastguard, especially on weekends Turn volume to max, adjust squelch until it screams at you then back until it stops. Check your on International not USA or Canada As long as the Ariel is screwed in tight and the red wire is connected to a positive supply and the black wire to a ground/neutral they just work. Maybe post where your cruising whilst away and someone can row

    24 to 25 hours if you mean sailing then a whole lot more info required Option 1; Are you taking a 200nm offshore high latitude yachts with tonnes of fuel and happy to round the horn ? Option 2; or are you going to stay in the tropics and average 4kts option 1 is 65 to 70 days non stop option 2 is a year or more

  15. Just catching up with this but don’t see why Northland Councils are so pissy about this We cleared into Marsden Cove about a month ago and there’s fan worm on the pontoons there The stable door is open, horse bolted and a spark from its shoe set the whole farmyard alight.
