  1. For a Wright 10 I would expect the trip to be 2.5-3 days non stop. Anchoring every night isn't that feasible as a lot of the trip is very exposed and places to anchor are either well off track or only suitable in limited wind/swell directions. Rounding East Cape is a serious undertaking...Ive done it at least 8 times and only had 2 calm roundings, the others were getting bashed to various degrees. From the tone of your email I would leave the boat at home and take the car as this doesn't sound like a trip for you!
  2. Whose sails do you use? Talk to the sailmaker for a tuning guide to suit what you have.
  3. Well that's cursed it now!
  4. Did you need to modify the anchor locker to make it fit?
  5. I think your doing well to predict a night time rounding for most boats this far out from the event!
  6. Have a chat to Ross Littler "Zambezi"
  7. Most years have a light race as well as a "breeze on" race... I certainly prefer breeze on...
  8. A grand a month.... you're out of touch! $1147 a month these days!
  9. I doubt it's an insurance job as I bet GH sold it for virtually nothing... and what insurance company would insure it for heaps when it was brought recently for nix? I doubt it is insured at all!
  10. There is a severely run down Lotus 10.6 on K pier Westhaven called "Ultimatum"
  11. Where is the blue kite in the video? Pretty sure Sunset Sam is the little boat with the fractional white kite... they look on edge and hauling!
  12. Seems a bit odd not to race a rum race on Matariki day but instead have a "Matariki Race" the night before it's actually Matariki day! A race on the actual day could be a good option as it's a public holiday so a few people may be looking for something to do...
  13. Shimmer... its a big problem of NZ yachting! Everyone enters events at the last minute! It makes it difficult for organisers to plan when they don't know the numbers. Not such an issue for the SSANZ series as we all know it will get good numbers in the end but for other events it is a big problem. I have seen several cases this summer where numerous people have held off on entering waiting to see who else is entering. As everyone waits for everyone else to enter, the organisers see low entries and cancel the event. Then you hear "But I was going to enter that!" Moral of the story is
