    Burling and his team have missed out on the $3 million prize. They have already won over 2 mil though... https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/350342031/spain-win-sailgp-grand-final-day-national-sporting-glory
  2. Looks like some new courses this year. Was getting a bit repetitive heading out the Motuihe channel every time.
  3. Good interview with Lisa Blair on RNZ this morning: https://podcast.radionz.co.nz/qday/qday-20180604-0940-antarctic_solo_sailing_record_holder_lisa_blair-128.mp3 https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/queensbirthday/audio/2018647776/solo-sailor-lisa-blair-s-epic-journey

  10. Some good footage of what happened to a liveaboard yachtie in Tutukaka recently. He had no gas detector. TV3, First Responders, season 2 episode 3. https://www.threenow.co.nz/shows/first-responders/season-2-ep-3/1713218618042/M85137-515
  11. Fullers, Vessev, launch ‘world’s first electric hydrofoiling tourism vessel’ onto Auckland Harbour “You’ll be able to talk on a cellphone or give a presentation at 20 knots, which you can’t on a regular boat,” the Fullers chief executive says. “It’ll be very stable.” The zero-emission, carbon fibre laminate VS-9 has partial foiling from 12 knots, reducing pitch-and-roll motion and “takes off” to full-foiling mode waves at 18-19 knots. If all goes well, Fullers plans to work with Vessev on a 100-passenger, 19m version. Horne says that could be hydrogen or electric-powered, a
