  1. Agreed. Our club has dicussed that we secede from the union. We pay a large amount for very little in return. The 5 ring circus eclipses every other avenue .There is a token visit from Regional rep occasionally for centreboarders. Nothing ever for keelboats. We are a cash cow for YNZ Take away the Olympic funding and there's the conumdrum for the executive so they have to focus on medal count for their own well being. I think we pay $35 a head . For what ? Half the members are social members but YNZ has that one covered. Not to mention double and triple dipping for people who belong to mor
  2. Leave the 2GM in
  3. Sorry...that should be Fogg !
  4. Hey T. I'll bet he didn't write himself a ticket when he saw your video. Who polices the police ?
  5. Thanks for that Fish...I'll try it
  6. Hi Fish...would you pse elaborate on silicon wrap on your prop shaft...thx
  7. Yep, thats why yet another competitor stopped racing. Over regulation. Amazingly we continued to sail those same waters in similar conditions and haven't had an issue. And without the security of other competitors around us !
  8. I don't think its too bad. But ,silly me,doesn't steel rust or has that stopped too ?
  9. No wonder. About 20 tears ago an ex Transit engineer told me to not drive on the Nippon Clip ons. Once the Greenies get cars banned there will be the biggest waikways and cycleways available you can imagine. Methinks the Harbour Bridge has reached its limit ?
  10. Thats right KM. The devil is in the detail,particularly detail thats vague especially on enforcement. With Regional Council / Harbour master it only takes one zealous officer and they have the book to throw at an innocent boatie . It's the hassle and expense of proving you're not guilty whilst they have an inexhaustable supply of both.. The good intentions fly out the window once some officers get involved.
  11. Hi KM....would you hoist a crew (or yourself )up a spliced main halyard as described here.... ;4 to 6 to 8 ?
  12. No higher authority than Michael Field on Twitter
  13. Just another part of Miraka Honi's ( NZ )governing Communists master plan to keep the peasants living in fear. Thus they are controlled. And we've got a lot more to come over the next 2 plus years.
  14. I was more referring to NZ papers. They long ago stopped printing items regularly from o'seas journos like Gwynne Dyer. Too much quality and accurate informative detail. RNZ = Red Radio
  15. Yes....a mate had a local giveaway rag. He reckoned the free press had died in Miraka Honi (Nz) 25 years ago. I too would love to know those 'balanced' publications
