  1. Adix is 212 feet long. Collaboration between Lidgard and Nalder. 12 sailmakers, 5 months, new spectra fabric. Built in 2015. Cost over a million bucks. https://www.lidgardsails.com/ClassicSails.aspx https://nelsonweekly.co.nz/2015/07/nelson-sail-maker-wins-dream-job/ https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/boating/72316947/more-than-a-million-dollars-in-sails
  2. The colour represents speed. Green is about 10 knots. Red is about 2 knots. So hopefully they were going slow when they hit. But looks like they had a problem earlier on. Anyway the track is now moving north, so they may be off now.
  3. All the smaller boats withdrew, less than 40 feet.
  4. And 3 more out. Perfect Storm and Ragnar made it to North cape. Start Me Up got to Cape karikari.
  5. Hotdogger nearly caught the other 930, but have now pulled out with mainsail damage just past the Cavalli's.
  6. Looks like Hotdogger has rejoined the race now. They were ahead of the other 930 before stopping, so will have to do like they did in the Gulf Triangle - give them all a headstart then fly past.
  7. So they started a day late, but still had to head into 30-35 knots on the nose. I wondered if any would park up for a few hours, but looks like all 15 starters headed straight into it. The wind has now abated to 18 knots from the east. 3 have retired, and Hotdogger is resting at Gulf Harbour.

  8. Which one did you get? Force 10 looks good but pricy...

    SailGP

    The NZ event crowd of 11,000 is bigger than any other. Peter Montgomery was saying this morning that if they could have found more seating there could have been 15-16000 spectators.

    The dolphins live to swim another day! Many other SailGP events lose a days' racing due to wind strength, so not uncommon to cram it all into one day. Meanwhile Burling needs to improve his starting. Lucky to win with starts like that.

  14. HMNZS Aotearoa: Contaminated diesel fuel required multi-million dollar fix - and ship already rusty It was to be the jewel in the crown of the Royal New Zealand Navy, the $500-million, purpose-built supply ship that is the largest vessel ever to set sail under the white New Zealand ensign. But HMNZS Aotearoa has already hit troubled waters after less than four years in service. Herald inquiries have revealed the Navy has launched an inquiry after contaminated diesel led to the ship requiring fuel remediation work in Singapore.
