  1. We live in a pretty free society. If he wants to do it -good on him and I wish him every success. Andrew is an accomplished sailor. going back to his childhood. Failure won't be in his plan. David Lewis described dreamers as those of the night and those of the day. Andrew is certainly the latter.
  2. The last single handed race of the season. If you are wishing you are currently competing in the Trans Tasan, but didn't make it, this is your chance.

    Mapfre stopped

    12 hours to fix thde mast track.
  5. Low power. My VHF has a setting for using in built up areas.
  6. I just called CC on 16 announcing test call. They then direct you to a new frequency. Remember LP in the marina. Previous VHF worked all the way around the north island bar the Tasman once we got out a bit.
  7. That's cool. I had very noisy transition but tried it again without the VHF/FM/AM splitter and it works fine. Why would that be. Now hoping to get the radio connected to the plotter so that the position is shown on the radio screen.
  8. Mini is going well - see R66 results, but not really an upwind boat.
  9. http://richmondyc.org.nz/wp-content/uploads/Singlehanded-2017-18.pdf A great time for all single handers. Open and No Extras divisions. Three races. Beautiful venue. Great club. This is the first time that a full weekend of SH racing has been planned. New for competitors and new for the RYC.
  10. Have a new VHF to set up. Was wondering what an MMSI number is and what it does.

    The Scallywag has been in stealth mode for a while. Will be interesting to see where they have repositioned themselves to.

  18. Sheet foam as a 'drop in' unit. Easy and quick to work with and paints up great.
  19. Do you have a reefing headsail Changed? I understand they are very handy for short handed sailing. I'm interested in those. What size is it full hoist, how much does the reef take out, and is there any issues / short comings / drawbacks in having a reefing headsail? I assume you run it with hanks? Yes it is a reefing blade. Reduces by about 800mm. A great thing to have and yes it is hanked. Also have #3 jib which does the same and then it's to the pink sail. Works well and allows us to change down quickly. Jib cars remain where they are so only sheets to change - retie.good thi
  20. Good fun. Nice run although reef should have gone then. Helmsman had a wee error when trying to get head to win to crank the halyard on the jib but all good in the end. 1st reef in main and reef in jib was good going home. Great way to start the Christmas break. Cheers to RYC for hosting and to organisers.
  21. Almost home after our second loop of the NI.
  22. SailIQ. Great sails.Loft in Takapuna.
