  1. We look across to Cornwallis, I really wish I'd have seen this boat I'd have gone out for a look! Fantastic. She's a beauty. Eerie about the ketch.
  2. Thanks for this guys. I have compiled it into some bullet points - all anonymous. The intention is to use it in a newsletter about marine biosecurity. If you'd like to see it before it is published, or are curious about where it's going, please just send me an email - zoe@wildemedia.co.nz - I'll be happy to show you.
  3. Awesome! How long was it since you'd maintained the hull, and what did you notice exactly?
  4. Hi guys I hope everyone is well and still enjoying boating! Great to see the forum still going strong. While I hear that your boat is supposed to get bigger as you get older, mine is much smaller and I am down to around 4m LOA with a little dinghy. I am sure I should own a fifty footer by now. But that's not why I am writing. I am doing a little research into the correlation between a clean or dirty bum and boat performance. I'd love to hear your anecdates/experiences and before and after statistics, for possible use in an online story. Also feel free to email me - zoe@wildemedia.c
  5. Half tide... I know what I meant...
  6. Thanks everyone, the 'any time above high tide' sounds like a good rule of thumb to me and my mathematically incapable brain. Wal, we have a TV and numerous iPads to keep them busy but weird thing is they want to be outside!
  7. Okay I have googled that, will have a go, thank you! Yes still alive. Very happy to be back in the boating world!
  8. Hi guys Long time no see. I've had four children since I last posted properly and now they are now all sailing opti's! So a lot of time has gone by. After 10+ years of being boatless, I am lucky enough to be helping look after my father's Logan 33 which we have recently moved to Milford Marina. It draws just over 60cm - it's a gorgeous boat and we want to get out and use it more. I am trying to get a handle on the tides and depths at the entrance. Is there any simple answer as to the time either side of high tide we are going to be okay to get in and out? Or am I goi
  9. Great minds think alike Elly I have just loaded some info about how to make Cat 3 easy' to the Coastal website for the NZMYC There will be an inspection day at Westhaven and also a link to a simple checklist.

  10. Hi Ballystick, correct he isn't at Vinings any more - let me know if you can't reach him and I'll track him down for you.
  11. If still available, I'll sell them at the Westhaven Car Boot Sale in February and donate the money to the Ponsonby Sailing School - let me know
  12. Also try www.marinaberths.com -which is run by a local, Ken Davern
  13. HI guys The multihull handicaps is on the website here if you need to access it in future: http://www.coastalclassic.co.nz/race-documents
  14. Hi Magique, yes the configuration will be a little different because it's through Top Yacht, but I will put the link to this page on the website on race day. It will be on the 'WATCH' page on coastalclassic.co.nz http://www.coastalclassic.co.nz/watch-1
  15. Don't worry Wheels I gave up worrying about anything much like that a while ago! Four kids does that to you. Is it Northland you are talking about? I have aa general understanding of the issues but not of the specifics so I just took a look at the web page. http://www.nrc.govt.nz/visitingboats If I understand it correctly do they need ask for an antifoul in the last six months OR a lift and wash in the last month. So you'd be okay with your 2-3 year antifoul so long as you'd hauled out in the last month - and yes I know hauling out ain't always cheap or always easy to get to.
  16. HI guys I can't start talking about stuff I am not an expert about on here but having seen it from a number of perspectives this is my understanding: - Remember that Auckland does still have locations - such as Great Barrier - that need protecting. Please be vigilant. - If it is indeed too late for Fanworm, there need to be good practices in place for whatever the next pest is that arises as a threat - From what I can tell if you keep your boat clean and keep evidence of lift and wash and antifouling (such as receipts) you are pretty much going to be okay but it pays to chec
  17. Hi Crew.org.nz, Sharing this info which may be of interest to you. Councils in Northland, Waikato (Coromandel), BOP and Auckland want to make sure that you are aware of their rules, and also of the requirements of marinas that you are visiting, so you can get ready before the summer. They all have slightly different requirements so it's important that you check ahead. Zoe Councils and marinas continue to combat spread of marine pests Turning up with a clean hull is the best guarantee of a warm welcome for boaties planning to cruise to other regions this summer, as re
  18. Don't believe it guys the weather will be fantastic. We've got this covered.
  19. Hi guys, here is yesterday's newsletter if you'd like a squiz: http://us5.campaign-archive2.com/?u=4b9c7493621300fdc7742d3c2&id=37df0e11ae
  20. Hi Magique, Further to Scottie's posts, the divisions themselves are detailed in the NOR document that is on the website here: http://www.coastalclassic.co.nz/#!race-documents/u98o7 If you are wishing to decide which divisions to enter, this is the best place to start.
  21. Entries are open! Get in there. We are working with Top Yacht this year on the entry system. This is a great system that is tried and true thanks to other yacht clubs. If you have used TopYacht before, your details will already be in there and you'll just need to update them. Unfortunately, we weren't able to carry over details from our old system. Please feel free to send us any feedback or questions and your help is appreciated if you do spot any kinks. PS Thanks Matt for spotting my blooper in the newsletter.
  22. Great to see you there Matt, and thanks for all of your input during the session. It looks like we can expect a few new boats on the startline, and there is some very promising interest in the single handed division. A trophy has also been donated for this division, which I'll highlight soon.
  23. Jolly good Island Time! Would be great to see you on the startline. A reminder that the free seminar is on at 7pm this Thursday at the Zhik store in Victoria Park Market. Confirmed speakers are Simon Hull, Angus Willison (Yachting NZ), and Alexis Reeves (RigPro) It's a great chance to get questions answered and top tips from the experts - whether you are a first timer or not. Please do encourage anyone 'thinking' about having a go this year to be there as these guys have a lot of great advice to share.
