  1. Looking for a couple of experienced crew to race on Panic Knot in Wellington. Boat is a Didi 26 (https://www.dixdesign.com/26didi.htm) and is a fairly simple and quick boat to sail that has some legs if sailed well. Currently at Evans Bay so will be aiming for most of their events as well as some of the RPNYC series as well. PM me if interested
  2. Tucked away safe and sound until next time we’re in the same place to enjoy it (I’m in Wellington and crew are in Auckland) Thanks for giving it to us. Much appreciated and looking forward till next time we meet.
  3. Was a great weekend. We had you spotted on the 44Forty in that vid. Sorry we were pushing it and made you a bit nervous. Great first lap with the sports boats with a few changes of lead on the beat back up the lake. When the breeze got up for the last two laps they had slightly longer legs than us downwind. Lots of wind shifts on the lake - we think we did 30+ gybes over the three laps but some really great runs down the lake locking into the breeze. Had one period of sustained 10 mins just sitting on 11-12kts - magic. Last beat home was tough and we're still sporting a f
  4. @marshy Apparently I got the last two tins from Burnsco last week - sorry! I may have around 1/4 of a tin leftover later this week which your welcome to. I'm in the Wairarapa though so we'd have to figure out how to get it to you.
  5. Also looks like the 3am adjustment has been applied on the Tues morning and not the Mon morning like the rest of them. Someone's got some wires crossed when the put that one in.
  6. Thanks SSANZ for this great shot. Coming into finish for Baltic 2 in second race.
  7. Had a rush over the last month getting the boat ready for the first race since I’ve owned her. Spent the last 2 years replacing the centreboard & rudder as well as tidying up various other bits and pieces. Entering gave us a deadline and provided some focus while keeping the pressure on. Couple of days on the water in the week before and we were as ready as we could be. Got a great start and led the Baltic fleet in a 2-sail reach down to end of Motatapu where we started to catch the tail enders of the start before ours. Some short racking up the eastern side of Motatapu out of the inc
  8. Hi Kiwifish I've now got Panic Knot and busy converting her to a trailer sailor (she was originally kept permanently in the water). Happy to chat or if you want to come and have a look over her she's in Gulf Harbour. PM me for contact details. Cheers Will
  9. See image attached. Ronstan stopped making them a few years back. I need two and managed to find one but need another. I can probably get something made to match easily enough but thought it might be worth asking in case someone's got one lying about spare. Cheers Will
  10. +1 for YouShop. Great service worth using especially for small to medium items (bigger ones the price gets a bit eye-watering)
  11. Keen on the various tubes BooBoo. Have PM'd
  12. We did a week on a canal boat in UK one Easter about 5 years ago. Magic. They don't go much faster than brisk walking pace so everything just slows down and you time your stops around pubs and cafes en route. One of the most relaxing holidays we've had. Not sure on what it's like in Europe but suspect it's similar. Only downside was you're tied up at night often next to a walkway so the odd rowdy bunch walk past but everyone on the canal was really friendly and welcoming. Was told a few of the marinas charge an arm and a leg for berthage as you have nowhere else to go so you may wa
  13. Feeling quietly relieved at now having the boat on a trailer. Can plug the battery charger in at home without an issue.
  14. I can see 10 days on the NZ North Island page on Metvuw. You may have just hit it when it was in the process of updating.
