Commentary
The weather was benign all ten days for this year’s ever-popular Hauraki Timed Run, so that it proved to be wind direction that determined the best window for a quick dash out to the Ahaaha Rocks leaving Rangitoto to starboard, and then home via the Rocky Bay Buoy off the south of Waiheke. That best average angle turned out to be 330 degrees and combined with 15 knots of breeze, this promised those who spotted it run times of just over four and a half hours if you left an hour or so before midnight GMT on Monday the 25th of September. Once discovered, the rest was plain sailing, with no upwind work and barely any downwind either, and the straight lines to be sailed only punctuated by the odd sharp corner!

Depending where on the globe you found yourself, that optimum window meant the run could be anything between a doddle and a red-eye for you, but our podium three proved that for hardened SOLers that matters not, coming as they did from three different continents. Well-timed chaps!

SWR 17/18 Leg 11 Gothenburg to The Hague
Then we've made it to Gothenburg.
And with the experience that The North Sea can be just as rough as the Southern Pacific.
Ok, it's time for sailing our final leg to The Hague, with a little detour around the Danish city of Aarhus, a so-called "fly-by".
And beware – the North Sea can still be very tricky, so fair winds to you all.

Sail Fiji 2018
Welcome to Sail Fiji 2018.
This time there will be no RAYC IRL fleet to beat, so we have the 1144nm from New Zealand to Fiji ahead of us, in our "old" Volvo Ocean racer, the VO70v4, completely to ourselves.
The time set in 2016 was a little under 66½ hours, done by "outlaw".
We can do better this time, can't we?
