    Hibiscus Marine Coatings Winter Race 7

    A wild wintery day for Race 7 of the Hibiscus Marine Coatings / Engine Room Combined 2019 Winter Series. Richard Brown co-ordinated operations on behalf of GHYC with Sarah Morgan laying marks on Club RIB, Chase. As the 18 boats headed down to the start-line, blue skies gave a false indication of what was to come. Several crews taking heed of the stronger forecasted breeze reefed down their mains & the majority were using

    Pub Games Night

    The Pub Games night was a huge success thanks to the hard work of the social committee dreaming up appropriate games and then showing great inventiveness to custom build the equipment needed. A buffet of typical English Pub food was enjoyed by all and then teams of 6 were decided upon, and given typical English pub names with a nautical flavour. The rules were explained, and then the games began. Lots of cheering and jeering

    Youth Sailing Programme

    Our Youth Sailing Programme got off to a very wet and windy start with 7 students from Whangaparaoa College going for a Day Sail on the legendary Lion NZ on Friday 19th July. The forecast 15-20 kt northerly winds transformed into 25-30kts with a vicious 45-50kt front coming through from the north accompanied by horizontal rain. It was good to be on a boat with the pedigree of Lion NZ as she handled it very

    Hibiscus Marine Coatings Winter Series Race 5

    Today was the perfect day for launches and fishing, not sailing. However, 17 boats and their respective crews for race 5 of the Hibiscus Marine Coatings Winter Series were happy to bask in the winter sunshine, nimbly drift around the course and deftly deal with each wind shift as it came. And there were many. So plenty of patience was needed. And in particular, big shout out to Wharanaki IV and Stark Raven for their

    YOU Travel winter Cruising Race 2

    A fleet of 7 boats couldn't have asked for more perfect conditions for the second race in the YOU Travel Winter Cruising Series. Course 2 was set and Glory Days and Toronui led the field seeking the wind under the cliffs on the windward leg towards Gulf Harbour buoy. The rest of the fleet followed around the buoy like a row of ducklings and became more evenly spread with Te Kawana and Shine On tussling

  • We have a (HUGE) Problem.....

    Actually, it's not us that have the problem. We have certainly helped to create it, and now we are leaving it to future generations to clean the mess up, if they can. If they are unable to, then the future for them does not look very promising. As the 15 year old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg told the United Nations assembly on climate change recently: 'I don't want you to feel hopeful.

  • Commodore's Logbook June 2019

    Welcome to June; a short message for this month, perhaps keeping in line with my aspirations for a short period of wintry weather as we count down to the shortest day in the Calendar year and enjoy our Winter Sailing programme.
