  1. Melting Pot is now out as well. For an update article here: https://www.yachtingnz.org.nz/news/i-thought-completing-race-was-only-goal-thats-not-case And Allegresse is currently 3rd on line, despite returning to port after the start.
  2. Grant - have you talked to Gavin? As the font of all old boat knowledge here in Wellington?
  3. And 4 yacht crossed Cook Strait over the weekend - but not to protest, for the Central Triangle!
  4. Well with plenty of contingency planning - what if's and then what's , Plans Bs through to Ps we're now less than 2 weeks away from the start and have 8 boats that will be on the start line Friday March 4. Big ups to Wasabi for coming down to sail with us south of the Bombay's and they'll be joined by Satellite Spy from Waikawa racing fully crewed. Then we have 6 two-handed boats - 5 of which did the 2020 RNI and are coming back to race a bit closer to home. Check out the RPNYC Facebook page and event website for updates, tracking and live stream of the starts.
  5. First sea trials were back in September and it's been floating in Seaview Marina since then.
  6. I couldn't find anywhere that they had confirmed the NZ venue, in the NOR it states it would be communicated no later than Dec 31 2021. We've hosted Class 40s here before so that would be great if it is Wellington.
  7. Link? Which NZ city has been chosen?
  8. Yep should be no problems to go up the mast, just preferably when it's not super windy. Ooopps it's Wellington in springtime ... so just pick your day!
  9. For a rigger in Wellington try Josh Hayter at Rigging and Marine NZ: https://www.facebook.com/riggingandmarinenz/ Congrats on purchasing a Stratus 747!

    Sorry not one of mine. Judging from the kites in the background it's not the start or finish which is what I have photos of/from. So I would guess that this is a Live Sail Die photo maybe?
  11. Entries are now open. Click here to enter - https://centraltriangle.org.nz/product/enter-the-race/ or check out the website https://centraltriangle.org.nz for updates and more information. Bring it on!
  12. The buoys Port Nic and Lowry Bay use are bright pink (well they start off that way and fade in the UV to an pale orangey colour!) A lot of them have broken away and are in the process of being replaced and relaid. For Port Nic race days temporary yellow race buoys get laid in the "approximate position" of where the permanent ones would be.
  13. That would be on the assumption that there are permanent marks currently in place ... there's not many buoys left in the water at the moment. Or were you meaning the really permanent ones like Number One Leading Light?
  14. Maybe we should look at a special prize for sailors that complete both the Northern and Central triangles???? They're only a few weeks apart.
