  1. Talk is possible delay until end of March ish Things have to change before we can run the Delta race Now just hoping this madness doesn’t effect the Evolution Northern Triangle
  2. I was out in the firth on Wednesday and they should have used waterproof paint as you can’t see the line. But on a serious not there was lots of Akl based boats fishing the farms on the coromandel side

    SSANZ Triple 2021

    SSANZ has an announcement about an announcement for Lewmar Race Delta! We want to run this race but right now we don’t rate our chances. In the current Level 3 - Step 1 environment- it wouldn’t be possible to run this race. It may be possible at step 2 or step 3 but the rules keep changing so we can’t say for certain if we could. What we do know is to run the race safely and the way we would want to we need - at minimum: - Entered yachts to have two skippers from two different bubbles allowed - Both skippers to be allowed below decks - for safety reasons - A race management b
  4. Probably in trouble changing colour

    Looking at all the above Biggest problem is as the rules change daily no one including YNZ can give any advice with any reliability Its going to come down to making a decision in the week prior I’m thinking Hope this is helpful, but probably not much

    All of you above have a different read of the situation Think about how hard this is to know what’s the go, for us that are trying to make this happen, rules changing by the day My take at present is we are going to end up in a situation where most can’t but a few can race, and nearly impossible race management. With very little if not no vision into the future. Fortunately for us there’s a big event supposedly happening the weekend before that will hopefully open or maybe close the door on this event.

    Also not sure about how we can do race management without adopting the rest of the team ? Fingers crossed this is only the first step
  8. Yep but the officials here will count the time from the Zarpe issue date and time
  9. Once you anchor before leaving territorial water you have returned and then need to clear out again. I may have done this lots of time to avoid bad weather, stop at an amazing atoll or avoid clearing out on a weekend/wait for Monday or I may not have. But officially it’s not allowed and I wouldn’t want to get caught doing it in either Aus or NZ

    That’s a bit cruel, but it did cross my mine

    We were talking about it yesterday and he decided 10pm wasn’t late enough so I said change it to 1159 pm He’s now saying it’s a typo I think it’s already corrected

    Neil’s good, but like most IT guys sometimes misses the obvious

    Yep, which way ? You thinking it’s too short ? Its designed to be a one off day race, if the weathers looking too light we will drop a mark or sail the short course. If you want something a bit longer then start planning on the RNI 2023, only 17months away, will be limited and sell out in minutes. So anyone that’s serious will be planning now.

  15. Big project for someone looks like buying it will be the cheapest thing the new owner ever does

    E books

    I’ve got an iPad and tried reading from it but it’s hard on your eyes, and hard to hold for hours, but if you could try it first. as for books I’ve got them on my desktop at home and laptop on the boat, I’ve passed them on via a memory stick or hard drive (needs to be 8Gb or larger, but smallest you get now is 32 I think) Then you just plug the kindle into laptop, open kindle books file and drag and drop the book file into kindle documents file. I can copy them and send to you by mail, but then you will have to forward to 100 cruising yachts I’m currently in Wellington until n

    E books

    Backlit Kindle is the way I went, touch screen so can be a little tricky to get used to when reading on watch, because if you touch side of screen it changes page,so you quickly learn to put it down and pick it up carefully. Probably the first thing I pack for a voyage now. Ive also got approximately 4-5000 books that have been collected from the cruising community that I’m happy to share

    Everything is fluid at present One of the reasons we put a date out
  20. Pay to run this by Angus
  21. The organising authority may need to consider allowing skipper declaration on Cat 3 to make this event go ahead, its a two year cert so half the fleet should have one ? And maybe safety checks at the finish for a large percentage of the fleet.
  22. You always look like you’ve got a reef in off the start line, but never on the results sheet Only 15 to max of 20 on the start line, wait until it’s really blowing
