  1. Tell me it's not true that Borderline has been bought by someone who is turning her into a solar powered fizz boat with no mast.
  2. Good idea Greg. The 'Round Waiheke' race is an obvious race for any yacht club (no matter which one) to promote. I'd love to see it revived and an Orakei start makes perfect sense. Think it would be more popular if it started and finished in Auckland and not Mareatai.

  7. Some more feedback. I crewed on Superbird with G.D and we found the whole Tauranga race experience to be very enjoyable despite being the only Multi. entered I live in Aussie and enjoy coming home for a sailing 'fix' twice a year. Tauranga and the Coastal. Tauranga at Easter is perfect because of the 4 day window for a return trip. Because of the smaller numbers of yachts entered we seemed to get more personal service once we arrived , a guy in an inflatable to deliver some much needed Rum and to steer us away from sandbanks and personally show us our Marina berth where Roger (Fully Cha

  9. The legendary Easter yacht race. Who's doing it this year and whats happened to the multihulls. We have heard nothing . Has the race been hijacked by family cruises, This great race needs to be promoted better.
