    Will be riding up that way next week with some girls after the coastal will have a look.
  2. I see the other day that Jason was selling one of the lovely old folkboats from Auckland I hope he hasnt damaged her.
  3. Re cup viewing from North Head we pedal there Priscilla no problems was up there this morning with many others
  4. Interesting proposal from some of the 'Superyacht agents" here to allow "High Net Worth Individuals" in to isolate on their own boats , perhaps this exemption should be more widely known. Luckily I dont believe many are going to try that loophole as the cup will be a flash in the pan and best experienced with a TV and a glass of wine on North Head. Without the magnificent J boats coming a lot of the interest has gone for me, hopefully the Coastal will see three or four Melges 40 battling it out and we can all concentrate on good yachting locally.
  5. We try quite successfully to keep them out of the Wairau Cove paradise
  6. Yes days on it would be good to think that the meetings and discussions have finished and that the fabrication to engineers drawings has commenced -it would have elsewhere in the world. Who do we ask that straight question to ? These bursts do happen fairly often in Auckland only six weeks or so ago we had a good one during rum race, all were laid flat for about four minutes with some sail damage, on a Friday afternoon as well .

For these batteries to last and give the paid for life -your charger has to be capable of charging at a rate of over 24% of the batteries A/H rating -when required in the bulk phase. To ignore this little fact is to a
  8. Thanks Priscilla I was trying to remember Evans name. The ship was anchored perilously close to Fishermans Wharf about a month ago during a fresh Souwester.
  9. Expect an announcement this arvo re show cancellation
  10. 117 days adrift Maurice and Maralyn Bailey-Died recently I believe
  11. Yes that happened and they almost lost all the good inspectors, happily most have returned (or retired). Back to the original post -it seems the managing of these vessels once here and in Quarantine period is the major logistics hurdle. One solution would be to take 10 cruisers at a time and let them in to Wharengaere Bay (crater bay) off the Te Puna inlet to anchor and serve out their time. Very sheltered from all quarters the KeriKeri providores could easily supply them food and booze etc, we could string something across the entrance to stop them leaving, the locals could watch t
  12. French designer- built by Hamish Russell who previously built multiple Newick tris. Nice sheerline.
