This has become a great race to do, and there was a fully crewed version earlier this year. The race also is a qualifier for the SSANZ Two Handed Round North Island Race in 2017.

  10. There is plenty of racing in Wellington. Check out http://www.rpnyc.org.nz/ This weekend we have the Nelson race. This is the central region version of the coastal classic. It is approx 120nm and can be an interesting and challenging race. This race is followed by the Nelson Regatta which is a great event that is growing every year. Have a look at http://www.nelsonregatta.co.nz/ People are really friendly and willing to help out. It should be very easy to get contacts. Yes we race in some windier conditions. The biggest difference is that the air is alot more dense than Auckland. T
  11. I take it a freezer is a requirement on the new ship! Got to watch out on some of those European boats. They don't always come with one.
  12. Smithy put end of Feb, beginning of March 2016 in your events diary now. For the central region yachts to fit in with the wider program, the race will be run every three years the year before the SSANZ RNI. This give the yachts that complete the race the qualification to enter RNI, and also nearly a year to look at improvements for the RNI. Would be really great to have the mighty Marshall Law in the next race.
  13. Ki Kaha, It was wonderful to have you racing at The RPNYC Regatta. You and Georgia we are great site to be seen on and off the water. Sorry Friday was such a challenging day for you, but the recovery on Saturday and Sunday was truly awesome to watch. Herdy RPNYC
  14. Will be interesting to see what boats register their interest after the Central Triangle, as it is a qualifier for the RNI. The Guarantee has registered its interest. I think a few more will be.

    Old Primus stoves.

    These stoves used Optimus burners from Sweden. There use to be an agent in New Zealand, but I can no longer find any details. You could try contacting Optimus via their website. I would unscrew a burner of the the tank and photograph it and send it to them. They should be able to help. The original Optimus company in Sweden was sold in 2007. Website: http://www.optimusstoves.com I rebuilt one of these stoves about 12 years ago. All that is involved in replacing the burners, and the leather cup on the end of the pump.
