    I exclaimed whilst secretly thinking it highly unlikely it was going to be possible Of more dreading concern now was the fact that the 1 4 tank of gas I left home with believing it to be enough was virtually gone and getting back to the nearest gas station in Helensville wasn t going to be too likely even if I could get off the beach Once on the beach there was no sign of anyone else calls to John failed but eventually got through to him texting to find he and Phil were at the top of the beach just keep driving for 15 mins Yeah right If you run out of gas we ll tow you back And up that dune I thought yeah right I then had a brain wave Dick s wife Diane was having her birthday and being treated to a drive up the beach from the south end Hoping they still had to pass a gas station I gave them a call Unfortunately they were already driving onto the beach but fortunately the Landrover was petrol and had a spare 10L can in the back Whew Thank goodness that things usually have a way of working themselves out The drive up to the top now became quite enjoyable I rigged up with John Phil and his boys and we waited for the wind and Colin Brian and Bevely to arrive It was a very pleasant warm sunny day T shirt and shorts type of mid winter day and all we needed to make it perfect was another knot or two of wind to add to the 3 to 4 that sometimes wafted in off the waves Dick and Di turned up with the jerry can and Colin and I decided that we could ill afford the adventure of trying to get back off the beach the way we entered and agreed to drive right down to the south end and get off the normal way Just as well anyway as on the way back I tried and failed to see the Wilson Rd exit There were lots of alcoves in the dunes with tyre tracks but none that looked like the one I came in on The top of the beach at South Head is pretty amazing with a wide expanse of beach to potentially sail on It was my first excursion up there and well worth the effort Thoroughly recommendable to do at least once anyway However I may not be quite ready to repeat the performance too soon as it took a good 3 hours once I got home to convert the off roader back into my wife s round town car I couldn t believe how much sand I brought home and being mixed with green algae which you get this time of the year it sticks like the proverbial Alot of waterblasting and soaping still hasn t completely removed the evidence I felt sorry for Brian the Tasy for picking

    the dry sand was well churned up and it was as much as I could do to get out without my trailer Thanks Colin for retrieving it for me I may have to look at getting a proper 4WD diesel with more grunt for the future Kariotahi despite the extra distance for me to drive to is starting to become more and more appealing and my RWD Hiace seems quite happy going there too and if you do get a bit sandy then the stream to drive through for a wash is right by the road Not sure how to post photos on the website yet so shall email some to those I have emails for Anyone else reading this that would like to be on the list please let me know at steve riggingshop co nz Posted in Uncategorized 7 July 2013 Muriwai Posted on July 23 2013 by SteveA Bugger The hounds fitting ripped out We had a good afternoon with about 8 12 kts of breeze A bit down on numbers compared to a fortnight ago with 4 c3s a Duo and a BK Not as much beach to sail on as Kariotahi the other day and very busy with cars and kite surfers Later in the afternoon they thinned out only to be replaced with a dozen blowkarts who joined in on our course Up with another mast Dick had another bad day arriving late as the new bearings he got for his front wheel during the week didn t fit so he changed his front wheel assembly for his Winger one We rigged him up with his smaller mast which he hadn t tried before and one of my sails Finally got him sailing he made it 3 4 of the way to the bottom mark and his hounds fitting pulled out So we quickly rigged him with his big mast and got him sailing again but he found it too difficult to steer with the small front wheel and packed up early Hopefully next time he ll be a bit more sorted and can enjoy racing round in circles with the rest of us Ready to go again I m still getting used to finding the fine line on a narrow beach day of gybing around the bottom mark without either ending up in the soft sand or turning too tight and spinning out more practice needed so roll on next time Greg with the healing Achilles turned up with his camera and got some good shots so he s going to send those out soon And now here they are 2 months later Sure beats homework At this stage we ve still not officially reformed the club actively and not set a calendar If the tides and wind look sailable then it s likely we ll be sailing somewhere so be prepared An email will go out with as much notice as possible with time and place John all smiles after a great
