Looking forward to 19 October 2012!
Despite the distractions of the Rugby World Cup final in 2011,
we were really pleased with the large number of entries. The club
ran the race without a major sponsor, but we were thrilled with the
level of divisional sponsorship, and we extend our thanks to them
all for continuing to support this year's race. Please support our
sponsors as much as you can.
The last two years have provided record setting runs and this
year, we have a new record available for the very popular 8.5
multihull class, and as always a keen eye will be on the first boat
there, plus all the other divisional winners.
Welcome to all those boats who enter year after year, and a big
welcome to boats new to the event. Safety is our number one
priority, please have all the required safety gear on board, make
sure everyone knows where it all is and how to use it.
Have a great race - see you in Russell.

A new race record
By the thinnest of margins, TeamVodafoneSailing has bettered its race record today. They finished at 15:41.44 - less than three minutes under last year's historic race record.
Great going guys!
