One week to go! Please get your entries in so the organisers know what numbers they are planning for.

Its been nice and sunny here on the East Coast so it must be positively tropical on the South Island - with sandy beaches and great sailing water - its a brilliant venue so get yourself booked in!

See you there

Long way to go but the forecast looks like an offshore force 4-5 all weekend.

Hi All
For the ferry- how long is a S15 on a trailer, I.e. <6m or <7m?
Kind regards

We can arrange discounts on ferries if you contact Yvonne on 07787 155800.

We can also put up house-trained sailors. Again contact Yvonne.

There are beer prizes courtesy of local brewer Goddards: https://goddardsbrewery.com/

Forecast still looks perfect.

If anybody wants to use Biscuit they are more than welcome. The boat is in fine fettle, just bring your own sail.

Call me on 01983 721264.

Good to see that Paul has not lost his winning ways. Well done to Jenny for taking 2nd and I see that even the webmaster made the podium :wink:
Did we trust Paul with the Southern Trophy (or warn him not to loose it)?

All safely with Jenny. We weren't going to trust the silver to a kayak.

I made a video of the first race on Saturday.

Unfortunately the forward facing camera failed so Paul, Jenny and Hector don't feature much.
