    The Cup is gone

    A sponsor providing cash to pay wages & build a boat maybe? The $99m offered by central/local government was not cash, there was a lease on a building that's won't be used for conferences these days as nobody can come in to the country, event management costs such as porta-loos/security/road closures etc so the council's constituents can enjoy the event... Unfortunately "cash in kind" does not pay the bills! Without the cash, and reportedly Emirates possibly jumping ship, ETNZ loses talent to teams that can pay the wages, leaving ETNZ with a depleted workforce cobbling a boat together
  2. presell [ pree-sel ]SHOW IPA verb (used with object), pre·sold, pre·sell·ing. to sell in advance, as before manufacture or construction:to presell a planned house.
  3. 6:30pm was mentioned as the time, as was the East Coast of Coromandel Peninsula. A straight line from the East Coast of Coromandel to Whangarei would get no closer to Waiheke than Channel Island.
  4. I'd taken the dog on Matarangi beach around the time the mayday was put out. I was surprised when I heard of the mayday as the weather was OK, Easterly 15knots maybe 20, not so much it bothered you on the beach. It was an Easterly & no way in hell it was 8m, I would have noticed when throwing a ball in the surf for the dog! Maybe 1.5m out to the Mercs. It did get up overnight though.

    Vendee Globe 2020

    Occurring 80nm from the finish and dropping from 17kn to 7kn he should drop from 3rd to 7th. Whilst 3rd/4th should finish within minutes of each other @ their current speeds. Close racing!!

    Wanted 1 x Y11

    Is 11.2m close? https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/listing/2723939650?bof=ufY4u30P
  8. Although probably not too accurate to headline it "New Zealand's largest yachting competition"When it comes to female competitors, there are 11 boats entered for the RNZYS Ladies Racing, and you'd see way more than 6 female sailors at pretty much any event.
  9. Fish - it is only 1.65M draft with the keel up! https://www.yachtingworld.com/boat-test/finot-conq-fc3-53-120154

    marine deals

    I purchased a VHF from them which died about a month later. They had no problem supplying a replacement but could not do the same model as I think they tend to get batches of things they are selling at a discounted rate.
  11. Hi Phil, according to Racetrack higher than the SR26's or Ross 930's, around the Young 11's/Elliot 1050's.

    Protest question

    If there was "serious damage" then there is leeway on the time for a protest flag to be flown & the other boat being notified, otherwise the rule is the protest/hail should be at the "first reasonable opportunity" which would be the time taken to unfurl the flag on the backstay not after going down to find it! . The protest committee is there to deal with rule issues rather than assign fault for insurance claims & if they felt there was no injury or serious damage & the flag/hail were not quick enough then the protest would have to be dismissed.

    Optimists in Antigua

    So far off the mark! No 20knots of wind, no 1.5-2m waves, it's a Laser not an Optimist, and for the same comment to be made would indicate either a partially completed, or botched, gender reassignment procedure! But HT, I agree with DrW, if you are not prepared to post similar comments with yourself/wife/daughter in the picture it's probably best left on your hard drive for your own amusement!
  14. Think it was just lobbed out there to distract people. A 250 vehicle barge would be way bigger than existing Waiheke car ferries which only go up the river as far as just past the marina or maybe 40% of the distance. Getting something larger around the doglegs in the channel which can be challenging for a Piedy at low tide would require a serious amount of dredging, especially given much of the area above the bridges is only 2-3m depth. Then they have the small problem of getting under the old Panmure bridge which at best would impose tide state conditions with its 7.7m of clearance. Or, would
