  1. If you post an add looking for crew, I would have thought it is common courtesy to post a response to anyone who has responded?? Surely it is not hard to say position filled or trip not going ahead ?
  2. Hi Paul Depending on timing I am potentially available. Have one trip to Fiji on under my belt and most recently Gisbourne to Wellington. Also numerous Cook Strait crossings. Cheers Jeff
  3. Hi Bevan Depending on timing, very interested. I am a 56 year old Wellington based owner of a Raven 26. Have completed numerous Cook Strait crossings, one trip to Fiji and most recently sailed as Crew on another Raven from Gisborne to Wellington. cheers Jeff
  4. I was in pretty much your position and went the Raven 26 route. Roomier than many larger boats, easy to sail. It was big enough for me and my two teenage kids for 5 days in the sounds without too many problems. Copes well with some pretty gnarly Wellington Weather
  5. Contributor here, Grant McN won the 2020 Wellington 24 Hour Race on Handicap (obviously) on his Raven 26 Footprints. We had the fleet well covered, as I came dead last on my Raven 26 in the same race. There are a dozen Ravens still around Wellington / Top of the South, most just cruising about but a couple of them still being raced quite hard and successfully, Setimo out of Waikawa and Tracer from Port Nick. Until recently , there were 4 of them on my Pier at Seaview
  6. An awesome trip thanks David and Damo. Still getting round to putting that video together... hopefully over christmas. Had an absolute blast just wish that i could have spent more time in Fiji than the 45 minutes that I oficially was !
  7. That would be Elmsie Bay. Really nice spot but probably pretty exposed to much from NE to NW but would be a good spot to stop if anything from the South otherwise Catherine Cove would be the go.
  8. Just playing Devils advocate here a little bit. If he had of ended up on the Rocks somewhere or upside down and a rescue had of been needed, what would the reaction on here have been ? Something along the lines of: WTF was a relatively inexperienced sailor doing attempting that Journey single handed, at this time of year. Him and his vessel were not properly prepared, as evidenced by the failure of his communications equipment and his failure to stick to his pre arranged passage plan? I certainly don't agree with MNZ / Coastguard / Police dragging him in but it seems to me that
  9. Last I read he was going to Auckland from Coromandel, or to the Barrier, or Wellington, or Waiheke, Or Napier
  10. Was fantastic Matt. No real dramas other than Auto Pilot packing a sad and having to steer most of the way ! I will do a bit of a post and put up some photo's over the next week or so.

  12. Thats about it so far Grant. Stumbled across it through some info on the Wellington Boat Show. There is some info in a recent LBYC newsletter. I guess they will release more info once season kicks off
