  15. Interesting I sailed the DF95 down at New Plymouth on Waitangi Day at the New Plymouth Radio Sailing Club on Lake Rotomoa, one section is closed for powerboats, jet skis etc, they have to take turns on the water in 10 minute slots and going anti clockwise. All the boats are moored, anchored up against the bank in one section of the shoreline and take off from there. Ok there is a bit of wake especially after a wakeboarding boat but we soon learnt to tack on to port and surf the waves into the top mark.
  16. I think the Emergency services where a bit shell shock after their last attempt of prewarning the public.

  18. I doing the Waiheke Coastal Classic on Thursday the 26th January, did it last year, a great race with DF95 and DF65 radio controlled yachts. It starts at the eastern end of Surfdale around a mark (port) at the western end around the headland following the boats on The Esplanade port round at the eastern end of Blackpool then a port round at the western end of Blackpool and back to the finish in the middle of Blackpool. All the entries goes a to charity on the island. Here's last years report. Waiheke-RSC-Coastal-Classic-Charity-Race-Jan 2022.docx
