  3. Tamariki's restoration is now all on under the watchful eyes of Martin Robertson and Rob Waring. It is going into a Charitable Trust. Any donations and help to get this large bit of the Waitamatas history back on it would be appreciated. Snatcher is on the front yard of a place in Epsom. She is being given a big going over by Suzie ready to come out next season to get some miles in prior to the 100th.
  4. 10 Mullet boats in the line up for the start, 10-20knt easterly straight down the guts of of the Waitemata with an incoming tide the whole day. This was going to be a challenging 98th race for the Lipton Cup. The fleet was tight on the start but spread out a little the initial windward leewards. Every part of the fleet had tacking duals all the way to Resolution buoy resulting in Tamatea and Orion gaining the lead. The 20 mile course then took the boats over to Rangitoto back to North Head, Northern Leading, Torpedo, Resolution Bean Rock then finished on a long kite run home. The sea state

The harbour course is decided on the day and has previously been between Narrowneck area in the East and Kauri Point in the West. The Cup was donated by Sir Thomas Lipton and first competed for in 1922. It is made by the same silversmith as the America’s Cup and is the oldest consecutively competed yacht trophy in New Zealand. What makes it more special is that
  6. The ladies in our office were commenting about how the fish, that live in that corner of Westhaven right under their window, were having a fun day with lots of jumping and ya hooing last evening. This morning one of the Sailing Schools little duckys was seen deflated and sinking. Yeap, the PCC's Sailing School is the latest victim of an overly play full Leopard seal.

  11. Yes OK you smarty pants watchers, it was the 97th not the 98th as was suggested earlier. Maybe a little excited with the 100th getting close. Anyway a bit of video form the race last weekend. For those who know him do feel free to ask Trubi how he didn't sink his boat when a gybe went bad. You'll know it when you see it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/gvqjijgtut2s7vs/97th%20Lipton%20Cup%202018%20Full%20HD%2050%20FPS.mp4?dl=0
  12. Can you beat this team around a 20nm, minimum, race track? Martin Robertson and his team off Orion II, winners of the 96th edition. You'll have to to win the 97th running of the Lipton Cup, NZ's oldest yachting trophy and one of the oldest in all NZ sport. Orion is again a favourite for this years edition but certainly not a shoe in. Valeria is pushing hard and could easily take the win... and she is 105 years old. Just out of the shed is Tamateta, a veteran of many Liptons and a winner of a fair few. She'll have a Mr Trubi on the helm so she'll certainly be one to watch. Plus th
  13. Keep our harbours clean – dispose of boat sewage properly As the busy boating season begins, boaties are being encouraged to help protect Northland’s harbours by disposing of their sewage properly. Northland Regional Council’s summertime campaign is reminding people of the rules on untreated boat sewage, as even very small amounts can contaminate shellfish and make water unsafe for swimming. Under the marine pollution regulations, untreated sewage from boats must be discharged well outside of Northland harbours or at a pump-out facility. A new interactive map developed by the counci

  15. A write up to follow shortly...... including the comment "I think Sunday morning is the first time ever I have seen an entire fleet wide and race management wide hangover'. Armare Ropes did out a few bucks on the bar and the fleet did deal to them all with enthusiasm. But in the mean time was some of the finishing close?
