Hi Guys

 

Sorry its a little late, but yes this saturday is the second race of this series. Hosted by Kevin Glover on the lovely Gina as your committee boat.

 

Its a 1.00pm start and the course is: Start between the Race Committee Boat (stbd) and Motukorea Yellow Buoy (port), take Browns Island (stbd), take Navy Buoy Browns Island (port), take Passage Rocks (stbd), finish between the Race Committee Boat (stbd) and Orapui Wharf (port).

 

Then its off to the beach for a BBQ and refreshments, (This is normally a pretty good night! thanks to BJ Tyres!)

 

The return race on Sunday starts at 10.30am. and the course is: Course: Start between the Race Committee Boat (port) and Orapui Wharf (stbd), take Passage Rocks (stbd), take Browns Island (port), finish between the Race Committee Boat (port) and Motukorea Yellow Buoy (stbd).

 

The committee boat for Saturday and the start on Sunday is Kevins Launch "Gina" and the finish boat on Sunday will either be Mercenary or the BBYC Launch AraTai (Depending if its a good day for fishing :-) )

 

Course sheet is here -

 

If anyone is thinking about entering but has not yet got their entry in please let me know so i have time to sort handicaps out (Easier done now than me making up a hard one for ya on the beach on Saturday :-P )

By design so take both ways to starboard. Designed to give you a bit of fun going down, while making the return trip a bit quicker for those of us who took full use of the "Refreshments" on saturday night!

is this part of a general trend

 

where getting crews together is tougher

 

than organising a bunch of individuals with their own boats?
