  1. I've done a fishing trip with Lance out of Westport hunting giant Bluefin Tuna... We had to wait 3 days for the weather to settle enough for the bar to open. Even then it was touch and go... but we got out and fished for 3 days in some pretty rugged conditions.... and there was talk about if the bar would be open for our return or would we need to stay out. It was rugged but I always felt safe enough. I was surprised when I heard of the tragedy and the weather reports. First thought was that Lance and the Enchanter have been out and fished in worse than that! (and I still believe thi
  2. I'm amazed he has bought a new boat to return to a fleet of 3 before the investigation is even concluded!
  3. Actually in many ways its easier to fill a bigger hole (but there are limits!).... better access to taper the edges etc
  4. You would be referring to Charles Brown and Anteaus
  5. The herald article is absolute crap and very one sided! Bolton was a "colourful character", a "lovable rogue", but he could not be criticised as a poor sailor or a man who did not care about his yacht, Elliott said. I don't doubt that he was "colourful" and a "rouge" but looking at how his boat was maintained and reports on getting in the way of ferries etc I'd question his abilities as a sailor or how much he cared for his yacht!!! On a very rare occasion in this case I'm leaning towards the council's side!
  6. Aqualine has a gift handicap! I reckon they will be the top 1020 on handicap for R3
  7. What are the thoughts/options, does SSANZ want feedback/comments/ideas? Will competitors be surveyed? (in due course after current series is all finished up)
  8. Will the handicaps for the last race be published before we start?
  9. Actually SSANZ isn't using Racetrack at all! as the handicaps in the Evo division are different to Racetrack. I believe they are actually General Handicaps derived and influenced by Racetrack but actually are different numbers. Racetrack ratings actually don't change that much or fast after 1 race.
  10. Using previous/expired PHRF's is definitely not an option! PHRF's are only relevant to each other for a given year. There was a time a few years back YNZ reset/recalibrated basically all PHRF's so numbers prior to this date with have zero relevance
  11. I think the horse has already bolted after they accepted entries for boats well over .750 last year... ie Rouge, Boogie Flash, Favourite and Zealous. My suspicion is SSANZ will split the Evolution Sails Division 2 in half trying to have boats most similar in performance in each half. It's interesting how the shortest course option for most boats is the most popular....
  12. Personally I don't care if the 1020's get their own scoring or not.... BUT I hope we stay within the division for more competitive boat on boat racing with some other designs
  13. Will there be an after race raft up in Issy Bay?
  14. Removing the teak is a great move (HL used to have it on the tops of the coamings). The only places to leave it are the handrails on the cabin top and foot chocks on the seats... Foot chocks are a fantastic addition.
  15. Most people seem to think the boat has been raced hard and trashed... but they have never been onboard
