  1. Hi all, from the skipper. Yacht was at secure anchor in Pohutukawa Bay, Rakino when struck by extreme weather event at around 2040hrs 9/4. Dragged rapidly onto South Island in very high winds and sea. Huge shout out to Rescue Services - Maritime Coordination Centre, Auckland Coastguard Maritime Unit and especially Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew who winched crew to safety in extreme conditions. All crew shell-shocked by severity of event but now fully recovered. Mourning loss of a fantastic yacht. Salvage mid week. Thank you to all who have sent support
