    Hibiscus Marine Coatings Winter race 10

    For the final race of the Winter Series of 2019 we were blessed with champagne conditions. A season with extremely contrasting conditions, today we were presented with blue skies & southerly Force 3 wind. The positive comradely interactions between the two clubs evident on the water & post racing today, more than ever. Mike Long, RO & his team on Weiti Boating Control set a solid course in the southerly, albeit oscillating at times,

However, despite the fresh winds, the rains stayed away during the race and flat waters in the space between the two clubs gave great conditions. The white fleet set off at pace,

    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

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
