Freedom got a great start at the pin along with String Theory and Exodus. Went well all the way down to browns island with Attitude catching fast.  String theory dropped their kite after browns with

It was a great sight to see this impressive looking fleet as we cruised past Navy Buoy.

Here is how Island Time's day went.   We left Gulf Harbour about 7:30am - a bit later than expected, not ideal. it was gusting over 40 at Tiri, so went out with deep reefed main and a working jib si

race report from formula one. as our first foray into 2 handed racing in this boat we had an awesome day. we started conservatively with the fractional zero which was the wrong call lol but our whole aim of the day was to get the boat and ourselves around relatively unscathed and learn what systems we need to improve. as the breeze built goin across to navy bouy we started to make a few gains on the rest of the pack. ( we were last).. at navy our first lesson learnt- start manouver earlier as our zero furler had issues.10 min later we head for an awesome 2 sail across the gulf. my poor wife had to do most of the grinding as my arm lost the battle with the zero at navy. we picked off boats on the reach then hardened up for the legs to get us around frenchmans. we decided to try the masthead zero for the short leg back to top of waiheke(sail hadn't been tried before) the sail and furler worked flawlessly big tick there. the last leg into finish was an awesome sail . we came away happy even though we got our asses kicked by the other boats. we got some practice to do but really looking forward to the 100.

F1 sure does look far better now than before, a vast improvement.

 

Big Ups to the Prism (Supertanker34) and Minx (drunken yobs 22 aka a Piedy) for not only wearing PFD's but in response to "Can we see some {safety items} please" took less than 2 seconds to have in their hands in their cockpit grab bags with all we wanted plus more. One other boat, a biggish one wasn't far off being that prepared even if it's grab bag looked more like they were about to pass thru security at the airport :) 

 

One boat had some high speed remedial work but the rest were OK even if one or 2 were marginal in time to find their gear.
