  1. Where did crusader end up going ?
  2. Blue dude in some French colony
  3. Got some photos somewhere …
  4. sh*t you are old ! Was that supergroove ? Lucky you got your crew back
  5. Those with the balls to go and capabilities to finish the race would’ve had maybe ? a hell of a blast ? It’s solid 30kts and more up here on Whangarei coast with a good bit of easting in it
  6. Love the AM when the sailing is on . The crap that has being going on this year is a new low though . Most Professional sport has lost relevance lately with the loss of freedoms , income , business etc . Not many people will take any notice of squillionaires and millionaires try to fund boat races and calling each other names
  7. Go on …be the first 1020 with a prod ! sorry I don’t have a piece of section though

    SSANZ Race D

    Just went through all that and now postponing this weekend cause the weather is outhouse
  9. Yeah I’ve seen that design too very simple and cheap
  10. And bay of islands sailing week ! Plus auck/Tauranga
  11. Yeah it’s the old buckle up but it’s a rocket 40 one off and renamed flashback
  12. This is a young 40 with a Y11 ? in the background …check out the meaty crane to the left . Cant really imagine any yacht clubs having the $$ to build a facility like this but damn it would be a “nice to have “ it’s in Oz somewhere and very common to drysail over there
  13. That’s the bugger ! Good to hear it’s getting a Birthday . It was covered in motorway soot and had a good number of oysters on the waterline last time I clapped eyes on it
  14. There was one on H pier at westhaven last time I was there . Name escapes me but it was very neglected
  15. um yeah …who’s that chap with a death grip on the tiller ?
  16. Agree . I spent a few years spraying gelcoat and laminating and they look like voids . Not sure about the one with flecks of foam core ?
  17. Looks awesome man ….you should put a Ctech sticker on it for a psychological advantage against your competition . That durepox black is the dogs bollix ! We have that on our new prod and it’s hard as nails
  18. Don’t condone that either but I doubt the police are waving them across with a “cheers mate “ as they pass by …I posted my conspiracy theory on how they might be getting across the border in the COVID thread
  19. Don’t condone it either , but can you imagine the uproar if the “rich” were allowed to socialise and have gatherings in exotic locales on their boats while the “poor” have to meet in small groups at overcrowded parks . not trying to be political at all just looking at it from all angles while trying to overcome my first world depression at not being able to race in the coastal classic this year
  20. Or Rivs and Maritomos that can’t resist skipping out of the gulf
  21. I assume it’s to stop people going cruising and intermingling with other cruisers at anchorage , or trying to sneak into BOI , coromandel , tutukaka , Mercury bay , great barrier etc . they do need to flesh out some of the rules so sensitive people don’t get offended …like last year when the “no boating because you may need coastguard assistance “ thing came in . Many people took that as a personal attack on their seamanship
  22. Saw Mr Roosevelt two summers ago in BOI and it was in pristine condition with damn nice sails . whichway is also a very nice looking boat
  23. Yeah we would ride them too , had some bad falls and lost a bit fair bit of bark
