Friday 11th - Day one of the Regatta

Sailed on Ngatira today & we were 2nd across the line & 1st on handicap so Mr Horsley was a happy chappy last night. :lol:

(borrowed a new shock proof / waterproof camera for the regatta, took over 300 photos & when I get home find there is no download cord in the box, so unfortunately it will be Monday b4 I can share all of the photos)

The following pix are some I took on my 'normal' camera - enjoy.

Great day sailing and and even better result for Steve. Well done. I hope Prize can match his result in the bermudan division on Saturday. Maybe then the Baileys can have a go at the Teams prize.

Sunday 13th / Race Day 4 - Photos

Again stunning weather but a little more wind at the right times would have been nice. Days like today just remind us all how special the Waitemata is.
A great regatta, they just get better & better.
Enjoy the pix.

Great job on the photos!

here's a few more from day 1 and Ngatira.
The sort of weather that favours smaller boats with large relative sail areas.
