    Looking for Krazy Bull

    Our family sailed it in Waikawa way back when it was young and fresh. She's one of the faster ones, make sure you go out for a ride!

    Phantom? I see she's fallen off the trademe listings.

    Looking for Krazy Bull

    Pretty sure I saw something with a name like that in the trailer compound at Seaview Marina yesterday. Don't think it's been there too long. http://www.racetrack.org.nz/boat.php?boatid=376337 Something in lyttelton?

    Growing a fleet with realistic goals

    Would love to do a national series in an old hobie, as there are heaps on trademe. Maybe NI traveller series ala 5.9s? Cheap and easy to move around.

    VOR Man Overboard

    After the first MOB, you could argue it was merely a 1 in 7 chance the next person to go overboard would have been from Scallywag. The conditions in which they each happened, however, could hardly have been less similar.

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Survival equipment or not, in those sea temperatures you're looking at 15 minutes at best. Really fucking sad.

    Wrecked racer spotted adrift. Who can ID this?

    I'm gonna say it's a hurricane victim given the age of growth and the lack of notable capsizing/abandonment reports. There must be a buttload of floating wrecks in the Caribbean right now?

    laugh or cry?

    From what we don't know so far due to the complete sanitisation of actual detail, I get the feeling that the fishing boat was running no lighting (which would be no surprise, maintenance costs for poor fishermen and all). If that were the case, is it conceivable that there could be grounds for redress if the fishing boat was practically invisible?

    SailTimer wind instrument

    We have the original windvane (tube and vane on masthead) and it isnt quite as accurate as it used to be. The hall sensor has a few degrees of inaccuracy but otherwise its still sending and receiving fine. Batteries seem fine but we only use it for racing. Got it all hooked up to a raspberry pi now, big numbers on the ipad. All groovy. Dont like the look of that new version though.

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Probably under motor if they're doing 5s/6s

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Yeah, that's a pretty weird search pattern, those GPS positions are logged what, every minute?

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    When the fuck are they going to buy a decent satphone connection? The OTW interviews are appalling. Something something inmarsat.

    you make the call

    14 B still applies and they get tossed out.

    caption contest

    Some people buy a set of new sails to win a regatta. Others, like Terry, find a water-blaster to be just as effective.
