  1. Actually any boat still racing at 3pm will be awarded a place, just not a time. That applies if the boat hasn’t even cleared Rodney. So reading that, a boat may still win line honours even if no boats in that division finish within the time limit.
  2. Most boats ever was 275, forget the year but close to 2001. Perhaps the 21st race, maybe 2003? SSANZ gets more entries these days because it starts and stops in Auckland and the two crew on board are back in their own beds by midnight. The after race get togethers have stopped altogether and I don’t meant the island party. I recall when groups gathered at the squadron or swashbucklers after the races. Also for that reason Coastal is an expensive and difficult race to run. Especially in a town, at times, indifferent to the race. Throw in accomodation, 2 sets of race officers, log
  3. Mayhem listed as retired
  4. I have one of these and it’s really good. Rows just as good as our Similar sized plastic beach Kayak. Pumps up hard like a stand up paddleboard. Walker Bay Airis Tandem
  5. Almost all of Newstalk zb morning programme on this. Listen live or available on demand
  6. Gold from Kiwiblog via Cactus Kate
  7. Races are 4pm till 6pm each afternoon. Usually a good breeze. It's going to be fantastic. I gave up on on-the-water watching in 2000 This event will be like the last one, pitched for TV. We had a great club evening in Whitianga with Jeremy Lomas and Clint Jones a few weeks ago. Clint owns Propspeed and developed and runs the camera boats. He had some great insights and ideas about how they will present the action. One of the biggest changes being the crews mostly out of sight - but they have that covered. He's pumped about it and all of us left feeling the same way.

    Interesting entry of Margaritaville
  9. If you have a yacht, you're a rich prick and must be vilified. Or does it mean you're poor? I'm not sure as couldn't be bothered stealing the Herald article on pocket.
  10. Alvie, spent last week in Mercury Bay and sailed south on Sunday. Was quite a sight https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/107165257/taurangas-new-marine-precinct-attracts-super-yachts-and-98yearold-schooners-alike
  11. It’s owned by the Alister, owner of pinnacle boats. Google them. I’m pretty sure still for sale.
  12. Saw her with a wing down at Bucks. You got it tidied up quick on Saturday
