2016 Marsden Cove Route 66 - Fri 4 March


Recommended Posts

I've been in a different race that finished at No 9 buoy and was stuck between No 7 and No 9 trying in vain to get there in no wind.  Wind died just past No 7.  The only thing that made us cross the finish line was that the tide changed...first time ever finishing a race with the boat completely sideways.  It was the tide that made us finish the race, not the wind at all.

 

I feel the pain of those boats that got stuck....so frustrating.

Done an Onerahi 100 way back, the skipper was the first to finish, going backwards. :wtf:

I finished sometime after 3am. It was pretty painful with anyone's guess as to what was coming next. Won some and lost some. Lost a lot to the other big boats right at the finish where I sat out there for another few hours. Still very glad I did it. Learnt a lot about the boat and challenged myself. Rum fest after finishing then a long motor home with Faster Coyote towing behind and Nathan and Col on board with me. Well done to anarchy and gale force.

Was certainly a mentally taxing race, the second of many park ups off the end of Kauwau was the worst. Managed to hook in to a land breeze off Bream tail which finally got me in to the finish after 4 a.m. panicked a bit going into the harbour and dropped the kite to early which cost me about half an hour.

The Hospitality after the race was the best I ever. A big effort to organise a marina berth for every boat not to mention the gear bag with a bottle of Mt Gay for every boat.

Or was there too much rum after the finish perhaps...can't remember?!

Finish times for catabatic and gale force are not quite right. Both were a bit later than the results indicate.

 

Yeah, Superbad sailed a great race. As did anarchy. Those boats (and 2 of 10) were a long way ahead of the rest of us.

Hmmm.  And Provincial Cowboy (us) finished an hour earlier than that time shown - as the tracker will show we finished just before 12.50am, a reasonable period ahead of Titanium.  Which I think will change the handicap results quite a bit....

Titanium finished seconds in front of me (Voom) 1:20ish is what I recall, so I think my time of 1:22 must be about right.

 

Yes that sounds right - I don't think we on PC were an hour ahead of Titanium, more like half an hour.

 

And looking at the tracker, Gale Force shows to be finishing at around 1:48a.m. (but showing as 1:22a.m. in the results).

I ( Gale Force)  Finished a minute or so ahead of Truxton who is shown to finish at 01:53:31.  so my guess is around 1:52 am . Don't think this changes the single handed results but sure is confusing.
