  1. There is one at Tauranga. Windigo. Lovely looking boat.
  2. I don’t have one (any more) but your comment reminds me that I once had a Drummond Sailing dinghy I got to teach the kids to sail in. I sold it to a guy somewhere in Northland who had a collection of them so they could have regattas over Christmas with family and friends. Cool idea I thought.
  3. Both of you are right. The study is focused on Infections. Ie returning a positive test. It’s been clear from the beginning that vaccine won’t prevent picking up the virus. It is aimed at improving the immune response to prevent hospitalization. the study concludes this most clearly under the section headed “Discussion” : “Effectiveness against hospital admissions in all age groups did not wane over the duration of the study. These findings are consistent with preliminary reports from the Israel Ministry of Health and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showing reductions i
  4. Results of the Burton Sails Great Race are now online. Thanks Ballystick for a great summary. https://www.mmyc.org.nz/legends/
  5. that’s a bugger. There was a lot of water in our cockpit too.
  6. Judging by their showings in the sail GP their star might be waning?
  7. Yep. Enjoy the Sailibg brothers. Very laid back.
  8. I prefer the boat building/restorations over the pleasure seekers. Parlay’s been fun during the rebuild and bulkhead issue. Ross in Aus is a good watch.SV Seeker is interesting. Acorn to Arabella has been good but I think they are now slowing down to make the thrill last longer. Leo rebuilding the Tally Ho has been very informative. I’ve learned heaps that I didn’t know about how boats go together from watching these.
  9. Hmm. Looks ominous. If GD does own TNZ then the Govt really shouldn’t give him $100m. Mind you they are giving similar amount to Amazon to film LOTR here on the basis that money=jobs. I’m still disappointed.
  10. I’m disappointed as I feel that TNZ means it represents me. As do the All Blacks, Black ferns etc etc. But the reality is that sport is a business and the AB’s etc are owned by the Rugby Union not NZ. TNZ is owned by…? Surely NZYS? Mystery is what the governance structure is. There’s no doubt that overseas teams are owned by their backers (Ernesto, Larry etc). But TNZ? It’s sponsored by Emirates not owned by them?
  11. Have to agree there BK. This vid just released to show comparison to a Leopard speaks volumes about low build and design quality of the Lagoon. thinking about 80Tonne of load (if that’s the right number) primarily supported by a single sheet of ply is astonishing. The beam structure of the Leopard seems more appropriate.
  12. not sure if anyone been keeping up with this issue: Facebook page for owners really needs to be checked if you own one or know some one who does. https://www.facebook.com/groups/902269000568556/ There are three you tube channels with the problem. they’re hurricane damaged ones so won’t get help from the Company but it looks like a build/design issue.
  13. Make sure you discuss the prop. Not all props get the boat moving backwards. We put a high thrust on our Yammy 9.9 and it transformed it.
