    Expect it's just a typo, current short handed PHRF for Mr Kite is 0.982
  2. I disagree Fish. It is not a humanitarian issue as they claim, it's a fiscal issue. They can get off their boats if they consider the risk of cyclones too high. That they don't want to lose their boats I completely understand, that this is a humanitarian issue New Zealand is somehow responsible for dealing with is politely, a stretch. It's a cost issue and in the overall scheme of people being financially hurt by CV19, one that's quite a long way down on my sympathy list. And 4000km between NZ and Aus, really, did NZ or Aus move sometime while I had my back turned? The
  3. Interesting but wow, talk about not being able to see outside your own pond. Very US centric and curious in that quite a few of the US designers mentioned were, at least in my opinion, pretty ordinary, whilst some I've got plenty of time for (RP, Andrews for example) weren't mentioned. I guess though if they were, it'd kind of defeat the argument that was being made. As to the bit about not been able to mention recent designers, that's pretty much flat out ignorance, plenty of good people still doing design, just not very many in the states. As to the production build boats not hav
  4. Don't want to correct you Wheels but those truly in the know, well their decision is more, shall I use a hammer or go straight for the axe?
  5. What would be the bigger insult BooBoo/Cam, adding or subtracting 10 mins to HL start time?
  6. Very quick note people if any boat wants to change the course they're doing, we can't promise a good start time but we are receptive to requests.
  7. Been out of the water for a while so I expect this will be the new, much anticipated Farr 1020 Super Sport
  8.

  9. Hi people Forecast is something of a concern this year, MetService is calling the breeze to drop in the evening whilst the PredictWind models have it dropping only slightly but still definite wind warning country well into the evening. To cover the possibility that it will still be strong into the evening and given some boats may have people new to sailing, I've elected to make courses very simple this year. I've also chosen to make the finish line a transit from the tower through the ODM meaning you can finish outside the ODM if you wish. Keep in mind people, as always, it's the skippers
  10. a vote for Dry Glide, unbelieveable difference
  11. Hi people, Brief reminder to get rum race entries in. Important for a couple of reasons, likely a decision on whether to proceed based on numbers will be made Monday evening. Will take entries after that but do keep in mind, the later the entry, the grumpier the handicapper is likely to be and do you really want a start time set by a grumpy handicapper?

    Cation has done CC 17, 18 and now 19. 13 mins behind Kotuku in 17 and 10 mins behind in 18
  13. Has been looking the tinyest bit unpleasant hasn't it, and maybe the occasional rain drop Sunday afternoon if GFS is to be believed. WindFinder not looking quite as bad and still quite a way out so perhaps there's hope.
  14. Thought Lucifer had a pretty good day at the office, Clockwork, the French Y11 Legacy and of course Elevation weren't too shabby either.
  15. At a very quick look, Vodafone 01:01:02 in 2014 and Giacomo 1:22:06 a year earlier for Kawau.
