11 August 2012



For a change the Hauraki Gulf decided to offer SOLers some sensible breeze to sail in - no milling around waiting for the first gentle gust, as often happens! Soon after the start there was a split in the fleet with some going south of Brown Island but most hugged the shores of Motutapu before advancing on Gannet Rock. The run to Flat Rock and home, as ever, saw many opting for bbqs while the winners, fuelled by coffee and blessed with immense stamina, race on to grab the podium. Bravo! Well done guys!

Pics of Real Race


It is time for SOLers to head back to Auckland where we are again made welcome by our partners to the 2012 SSANZ B&G; Simrad triple series - the biggest short-handed race and the second biggest keelboat race in New Zealand. This second course will see us from the start passing Motutapu Island (port), rounding Gannet Rock (port), Flat Rock (port), Motuora Island (port) to finish Orakei Wharf.

Raced over 50nm (14 July), 60nm (11 August)and 100nm (8 September) the three races start from Auckland, on New Zealand's North Island, and race around the Hauraki Gulf. This year SOL is again sailing Young 11(mod) boats which will keep us competitive with the bulk of the longhaul fleet. Our polar is that of yacht Fineline

At least three SOLers will be racing:
- NZL_PaulR on Panacea
- NZL_psychic on Psychic
- NZL_Yachtyakka on Promise

Good racing guys!

SWR 17/18 Leg 7 - Auckland to Itajai
Fortunately, the SOL fleet did not need to undergo thorough maintenance and related repairs while staying in Auckland. It is already ready and in tip-top shape to sail the longest leg in SWR 17/18 from Auckland to Itajai, at a total of 7.100 NM.
As in leg 3 – Cape Town to Melbourne, the keyword is "The Westerly Stormtrack" and to catch that, the weather will take us deep down south through the "Roaring Forties" and beyond, and then blow us towards Cape Horn.
This time we will not have to care about the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone as the southern race boundary is set to 70°S to give us a clear run.
