2019 SSANZ Round New Zealand race


Recommended Posts

 

Bean Rk is 28 gusting 37... can't wait to hear who puts the big gear up (or any gear at all...)

 Happened to wander down the beach at Taka and saw them blasting past Rangi. 

 

Whoever had the white kite up was farkn flying!!!  They overtook whoever had the blue kite and didn't look back.

 

All but one had kites up.  The red kite was doing some exciting looking wobbles back down towards Cheltenham. 

 

Only one was under jib, the rest had pretty colours out.

Send it originates from a viral Facebook video posted on March 1st, 2017. The short clip features a stuntman nicknamed Larry Enticer who utters memorable catch phrases before jumping his snowmobile. “Are you silly?” he asks, before claiming that he’s “still gonna send it” despite the dark and frigid conditions outside. Larry proceeds to crash his snowmobile.

At the hen already, fast ride north.

 

Send it, or sending it has had been around for years. Always thought it had its roots in sending the mail on the fastest stagecoach available, no reference for this so I might have just made it up myself after a few rums

Sounds legit.

 

They're smoking. 5 hours ish to the hen would be roughly up with record pace for a coastal classic for those boats. And they're only 2 up.

My first introduction to the term was in New Zealand in 2011 I think... But I may be wrong

So they've had a good run overnight too.

0600 update to tracker shows motorboat turning the corner 3 miles out from the finish, just ahead of titanium. Then followed by Krakatoa then gale force neck and neck with Katana, then copellia then arbitaire.

Looking light for the midday start here in Mangonui - maybe they'll get an afternoon sea breeze to see them out. We'll be live streaming the start again on Facebook - for those that don't like FB you can watch it from the SSANZ website. 

 

Will also let you know how the hangovers are this morning or whether #getoutofdodgebeforeOMA meant a quiet night on Motorboat 11....

On the tracker you need to click on the drop down tab at the top of your screen to change to leg two to be able to follow the great race south into the southern ocean

Next stop 47deg south, hope they packed their thermals

Don't think Krakatoas tracker is playing up... Just not so good in super light airs and then the breeze has started to fill in from the West so they got it last.

 

Titanium isn't doing so badly though?

Titanium looks like they have made a choice to hug the coast and it's not working so well for them. Time will tell. I see Krakatoa is back up and running. That must have been very frustrating... Lot's of time yet on this leg! I have to say, Josh and Damon have got that boat going extremely well.
