It'd be great to get StAnna on board - we could introduce him to some REAL sailing on a REAL yacht!

I like that option... and cannot for the life of me work out why we didn't do it last year. There was absolutely no reason we couldn't have just anchored for the last two hours right where we were and still finished the race. I put it down to us all being too fed up with the whole debacle to even think straight.

Well it has been known for an occasional Bris-Gladstone competitor to anchor and weight until the tidal race slows before attempting the run up to the Yacht Club


If it even smells like it might do that again closer to the date, there's no way I'd even get on the plane.
Just what did Andy do to you guys? Jeez, toughen up, a kiwi may read that
