HIRW 2012 - Super Multi Div

The showdown between the two fastest sailing boats in the southern hemisphere has been and gone.

Good news is Australia is the winner on line but the Kiwis have us on handicap, this was due to us taking a rating hit and carrying the code zero (which we never used).

The racing was fantastic and I cannot wait till we get to do it again. We had a small hipcup on the second last day with a reef and our centreboard while tring to miss two whales and 3 yachts in a small channel that made us DNF in the second last race and miss the last one which was a shame.
But we live to fight another day.

Both skippers are now keen to get out and practice some match racing skills for those pre starts.

A lot of lessons were learnt while racing and what changes could be made to make the boat even faster again, so now we just need a nice big sponsor to come along and put there name on the fastest sailing billboard in Australia.

Must say a big Thank you to Sean for the ride and a thank you to Simon and Team Vodafone boys for coming over and racing with us.
