  1. I am looking for one or two committed members to join my crew for the RNZYS winter series. The dates are: May 7 and 21 June 18 July 2, 16, 30 Aug 13 and 27 Sep 10 Nomos is a 40ft Catalina yacht. Not a racing machine but a well equipped and fun boat to sail. We are a really social and international crew, get along really well, and go out to have fun and learn together. If interested please call 021 472 111. Looking forward to having you on board.
  2. I fly the spinnaker on my boat with lazy sheets (ie one sheet and one brace on each side). I am yet to find the right technique to prevent the lazy sheets from dangling in the water when flying the kite, but also when not in use on the sides of the boat.

  3. Hi A and Duty Free, Black Panther, Raz 88 and Chippie, thanks for your advice. Obviously I am still new to the Auckland scene and learning!

  6. Hello sailors, I recently bought a share in a 40ft Catalina, Nomos, and sailed her up from Wellington to Auckland. Now I need you to help me race her! Based in Westhaven Nomos is a cruiser-racer, well equipped and in good condition. She's not a racing machine, but she sails really well, is comfortable and with a good crew she can win. If you have some racing experience, want to race for fun and make new friends please join me! I am looking at racing on Saturdays from the RNZYS and would be open to mid-week racing. I will ask for a participation of $25 to a crew fund to keep he
