looking for credentialed kiwi or Aus delivery skipper

Yesterday, 11:09 PM

Working with a boat now in Samoa that needs a delivery skipper to get to NZ.  Insurance co is paying, and they require commercial credential's.  Hope to get someone from NZ or AUS to make the air fares less expensive.
 
 The boat is a nice 42'er in good shape.  A health problem has caused teh owner to have to leave it.
 
Any specific recommendations, with contact info?
 
PM if you want to keep it private.

COR?

So we have the 5 challengers - which is the COR? Why is that still a secret?

cold sailing gloves

14 June 2014 - 01:06 PM

I have found cold weather gloves to be the hardest part of the kit to get just right.  All the other clothing is pretty easy, but the gloves have to be waterproof, warm, easy to get on and off and flexible enough to handle lines and knots.

 

These are my latest favorites:

 

They have a double lining (knit and fleece) which both make them warmer than most of the rubber/grip coated gloves, and  seem to make them easier to get on and off. . . . and note the price, hard to beat.
