Sportboat vs Coastal Racer modes.

my finest boat trailer backing moment(s) - backing each 9.5m hull down this driveway. 

We're going up this (next) year but looking at the results history there seems to be very little interest in the windward/leewards especially for division 3 which has rarely had a fleet in 6 years. Mo

Hey guys 

Hamish from Frenzy here, we are very keen to get Racing C / Division 3 going again. Would be great to have a good fleet of keen racers who dont have the boats to be competitive with the likes of Anarchy and Ice Breaker but have the same competitive drive and attitudes. Think 80’s & 90’s Anarchy’s and Ice Breakers of their day and perhaps more modern but smaller boats.
 

I have spoken with a BOI sailing week committee member who is also motivated to bring the division back as they recognise they do have a problem with the volume of boats in the island racing divisions, if you participated last year this was very evident. 
 

We have floated the idea of 1 windward leeward + an island race each day as we didn’t want people scared off by the prospect of 3 windward leewards. How ever I think all involved are keen to do what ever the majority wants and what is needed to get it going! 
 

One big thing it is going to take is getting people on board and registered early to show commitment. We are based in Tauranga so don’t have contact with the other potential participants. Hopefully this thread and the Auckland racers can get some good chat going and get people pumped for some good close racing!

I also emailed them yesterday regarding bringing back div C and know of another 3 boats as well as deep purples 3 that would fit in Div C
