Recommended Posts

Gale is doing the cruising division....

Cruising as in what you did in RNZ ?

Pintop main doesn’t make you cruising Clipper, or are you meaning the Chains Ropes and Anchors Enduro

Oh wait, yep, the enduro. Bit tired,  still haven't caught up on sleep after my cruise around the country.

 

We will try and race around the north island.

It's been there all ready to go for ages, so much so she could have been on the RNZ startline.

It's all about priorities and want. As in she's never made it far up the priority list and there has been no race who has wanted her.

I’ve got two Elliott 7.9’s for you to race against KM

They shouldn’t be too much faster than you.

Will we see you on the 8th of May then ?

You will need to enter on the 1st of April as it’s looking like we could run two fleets at this point and Napier hasn’t even been told how may we are sending them yet (no point worrying them about what they can’t change) but some may have to anchor off yet.

Really??? Can we see photographic evidence???

Yeap but I'm sure you've seen a 930 before. Mines just like those but in a slightly different colour scheme.

E7.9's in the RNI??  That comes as quite a surprise considering some of the 10mt minimum for the RNZ reasoning I was given.

 

Run 2 fleets??? what do you mean by that?

Be careful about not meeting demand if it's that strong. Look around at how many didn't only to lose longer term. 

 

Maybe push the late entry option to closer to kick off. That would allow easier entry for those 'on the waiting list' when the inevitable drop outs of those already entered happen. If you have set up for X number of boats and any on the waiting list have all their sh*t organised that should be simple enough to do. But if you do emphasize later (replacement) entries will only be accepted with all conditions meet, you can not piss around with 'I'll get it to you......' type time frames. With in XX days/weeks of kick off any boat wanting a now vacant spot MUST present everything completed at once and be ready for any inspection at a time of SSANZ convenience not the boats.

I think most know that but if demand is strong enough it will find options.

 

For example your smart dude in Welly is onto the trail of a demand driven possible solution. One I think is a most magnificent idea and would be absolutely brilliant for the event if it can happen. Whoever thought of that needs a big pat on the back, and a pat on something else if it comes off ;)

Entry in, look forward to seeing the other competitors.

 

Interesting having to have an AIS transponder (not complaining). Have been comparing the GME (cheap) and the B@G (have their gear).

The entry list shows some very good match ups that will be great to watch.

A couple of boats with the potential to make over sized moves also lurking, nice.

A good mix.

 

Mr Kite, what's that?

On the negative side it is a Pity a lot of boats committed to the Ssanz events and RNi in particular may miss out.

On the positive this is one of the few races which has caught the imagine of a lot of people.

Only got to wait until 60% of the fleet has finished before the next start can be scheduled.

Probably no bigger gap than any other RNI with the likes of ran tan not there.

Miss scarlet at the top of the waiting list. Still a big difference between anarchy, Mr kite, blink etc and an e7.9

So what happens if a boat doesn't make the next start?

Hasn’t happened in my memory as the restart wont be at night so in reality it’s longer than stated, but it could happen if we have a boat that’s sailing exceptionally slowly.

In that case they will have to restart themselves at exactly the minimum stopover time after they finish.

 

If anyone else missed out let me know as the website handled the 30 entries in 45min (28 in 15min) no problems however when we switched to registering for the wait list a couple of people couldn’t get through, they contacted us and we added them manually in that order.

 

We are working on securing more options for berthage in both Wellington and Napier and we hope to be able to accommodate everyone, but no promises at this point.
