What you mean actually take the garden ornament sailing? I bet you a bottle of rum you don't!

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

Im entered. I also know High Voltage and Kick are too. Go the 1050s!

Yes they were holding back, maybe they were waiting for the prizegiving?

 

Some of the smaller boats did well on that leg: Distraction and Moving Violation.

And Wired has finally won a leg for their division, but the overall winner was Laissez-faire.

Leg 4 looking quick.

CU Later had an issue with their instruments, so started 3 hours late.

The fast boats are round East Cape and now having a good downwind hoon.

Looks like Clockwork has made an error by heading west into the wind hole, others keeping well offshore, Mr Kite maybe too far out?

The slower boats struggling in lighter breeze reach to get to the cape.

Nothing too major I think. Looks like they have slowed a little after Cape Colville. Serena have rolled them,GaleForce and HigherGround gained a bit,

Biggest winner appears to be Waka who must have been flying downwind, and went out very wide.

Nothing happened to us on motorboat other than getting caught in some very light winds. Titanium who were just in front at colville managed to lay across the gulf in good breeze while we had only 5kts from right behind us. A 16nm lead turned into 4nm by the time the others brought the wind down to us. Serena is just much faster than us vmg running in light winds which is why they passed us quickly. Was a very frustrating day for us. Leg 3 and 4 ended the same with the boats behind bringing the breeze down to us while we could do nothing but wait....

That's sailing for ya.

Well, some of us followed you all on the tracker, as that's the best we could do. Seemed like a mentally tough race with all the calms and holes. Well done to all boats and crews, RNI is not an easy event, NZ coast is a tough place to sail.

That doesn't half make you feel sick when you watch that happen all around you. Well done to all participants. It's a tough race.
