  4. Good question. I find every now and then sailing needs to be more than a leisurely cruise. I crave a challenge. Currently that's single handing a 63 ft schooner on a winter cruise of northland ( gybing from a 3 sail reach to a 3 sail reach in 30 to 35 kn at Cape Karikari was a highlight). But I am also fascinated by small boats. I like the idea of a challenging expedition in one of John Welsford s little boats. I got excited a month or so back when I met a kiwi guy who had done the Everglades Challenge in a Dovekie. So much to do and so little time.
  5. A Frenchman who, because of covid, decided to sail non stop from noumea to reunion. 7000 miles in 77 days in a 4m self designed and built boat.
  6. It is way more likely a hatch or window will be stress tested from the outside than the inside. I think this was a statistically less probable event.
  7. Excellent. Even does replay so can choose when to watch.
  8. To the best of my knowledge NZ is the only country. And Fogg's post sums up my reaction to the report. And IT's post alludes to another problem: an unwillingness to criticize. This is understandable as these are real people with friends and families. I don't know the answer to that one.
  9. Next silly question, when is first race?
  10. IT at this rate you are going to run out of jobs soon ( for the uninitiated this is humorous).
  11. Baked some bread. I started during lockdown 1 now can't bring myself to buy supermarket bread.
  12. I remember going for a test sail and thinking a lot of other classes are about to die. I believe he designed it on a napkin at lunch. Can't say he wasn't influential. And I like the NIS.
