    VOR AUCTION - OPPORTUNITIES LOST & STILL THERE?

    Sometime after the first of the year, probably spring is what I read somewhere. Now, this is a stupid name. There are lots of ocean races. How about Round The World Crewed Race?

    Witty spoke too soon about the skiff race; he and the boys had to return to the dock in the third race due to unspecified equipment damage.

    VOR AUCTION - OPPORTUNITIES LOST & STILL THERE?

    8 Entries were received by the Late Entry deadline 11/30. Being vetted now. No names or any details re entrants except that one is probably clearly qualified and some others likely not. Number of entrants will make a big financial difference to the city of Auckland as it will determine which location will accommodate the numbers of boats in the race.

    There has actually been some intelligent discussion about the issue of all female v. partly female v. all male crews on this and other threads over the past year. Intelligence seems to be something you lack, Ozmex. Perhaps you should just stay in your cave.

    It seemed to me then, and still, that it was waste for the VOR, and as of now still unnamed Around the World Crewed Race, to scrap the design race management had come up with when the Board fired the CEO. No doubt a substantial sum of $ was spent on the design. Yes, the idea of having two separate types of boats in future races - a monohull for offshore and a multihull for in port races - was ridiculous. But to pitch these plans was IMO premature.

    Yes, I believe the nationality percentage for the Japan and China crews goes from 20% to 40 %, 60%, 80%, 100%.

    This may explain why "Parko" is not on Witty's Scallywag crew....or not.
