Race Report. Shimmer. Best Ssanz ever for Shimmer (not hard as this is our first season) perhaps the opposite experience to Deep Purple we are  racing my family caravan a 1980 timber Townson 34.

Was out on the water yesterday and saw Deep Purple racing in a bit of breeze. What a little rocket ship. So far ahead of the rest of the fleet they may as well have been in a seperate division.

Race report - Deep Purple Tough day at the office. North easterly of 25/35 knots, extremely rough and first mark 25 miles to windward was always going to be tough for a 25' 600kg traileryacht in

I see not all Y88's use electronic depth sounders.

Got well stuck but no water coming in so fingers crossed the emergency lift finds only the need for some re-fairing bog.

They reckon they were only 500mm off the exact same line Flash Gordon took right in front of them. Bugger!!

Yeah thats a good effort

That video makes me wanna move home tomorrow...

Its amazing to see that many boats out on a cool winter day. I know there are bigger events around the world, but 175 boats must be up there.

Took wife as crew, she loved the atmosphere of the trip out, the start and the beat to Tiri. Incredible sight. The video does a good job of capturing it, the iphone camera does a bad job!

What happened to Lucifer? Wasn't windy enough for hand stands was it?

Installed a rock in the main saloon. Crew lifted off by police, boat recovered awash  and towed into Owhanake Bay next day very broken. Still there
