Having done it a few times I can say this is an excellent series that is run damn well.

It is well worth the effort to get out and into it.

 

Sadly I'm broken or would be there again this year. Watch out next year, I'll be back and hopefully more dangerous.

Down at Westhaven after taking it easy at the Evolution/NZ Rigging Xmas party on Sat night, set up the boat, double checked everything then went to drop her on the tow bar for the 100m to the ramp to find the jocky wheel was totally seized. Broke the sheer pin in the handle off trying to get her on the tow ball so packed up and cut the jockey wheel off pending replacement. Gutted as it would have been a great day on the water but couldnt make her go splash so was not to be.

 

Hope you guys had fun.
