  1. Likewise here in Kapiti - hot still and sunny - Lusi got lost?
  2. http://sailinganarchy.com/2013/10/17/abandon-ship/ Walawala 2 lost rudder - boat leaked too fast to stop. Also says there is a kiwi on board - all safe

    Can't see why not as long as boat has entered before the 1 minute mark and is in the start area. But given where entry line is they would have to kill a lot of time first at 40 knots

    What are these?

    Na - Dog boxes for those that make a mistake
  7. I was lucky enough to spend 5 weeks around Stewart Island and Fiordland a few years ago and we hardly scratched the surface. This over Jan/Feb and we still took a weather pasting around the run run from Stewart Island up to Fiordland. To do that area justice needs 6 - 8 weeks down there - PLUS passage times.
  8. Can view live now as well at That is a webcam at St Francis Yacht Club

    Route 66 Race

    That last one must have a caption bottle of rum in it somewhere: My effort (weak) I"m sure we can find a new suit in the closet somewhere

  11. Planted 100 footer on mudbank out of Lowestoft, England on the maiden sail with owner on board - had been asking the locals onboard if we were okay before and they all said no worries, no mud around here - yeah right moment. Was stuck for nearly 2 hours waiting for tide to come in and lift us off.
  12. From his "Crew Agreement" - beware of exchange rates and the hidden "extra's" Full details of the costs are available at liveaboardsailing.com Current day rate = 35 dollars US a day This includes meals prepared and eaten aboard and fuels The shared extras are identified on the website but may include: passport entry fee, yacht entry fee, cruising permit fee, dinghy dock fee, marina fees, anchorage fees, water fees, etc.
  13. Just looked out office window and can't see them passing Somes Island either
  14. The McD's was an "art" exhibition a couple years ago so a fake liek the rest

    Great video on 3 News just now - it is a flyer
  16. SO reading that letter beggars belief! The wording effectively blames a vessel under sail as being in the wrong for colliding with one under powered way! Looks like they sent the letter to the wrong party involved.
