    was a good gusty 20kt breeze blowing almost square on to the beach producing some pretty wild rides even with our small sails on Tony Harold turned up in his newly rebuilt Winger to give Dick a hurry along in his Winger and Phil John and myself made up the C3 fleet Most of us hadn t sailed since last winter so we were a bit rusty and there were some spectacular spin outs at the gybe mark the first few times mostly by me Since it wasn t always possible to guarantee control we opted to sail a course north of the stream where there were no dogs nor small boys building sandcastles in the middle of our race track No one brought a gps with them and I felt it too hairy to try reading a speed on my phone as both hands were necessary to play the mainsheet to keep on a relatively even keel but we were quite sure we were exceeding 100ks at times Looking forward to some more racing soon and we ll endeavour to give more notice next time to drag some of the rest of you out Steve Ashley Posted in Uncategorized

    Only sail East of the camp Clem MURIWAI 15 SEPTEMBER A great day with some wind finally Down a bit on numbers due to AC racing and a late morning tide not being too compatible for some sailors but 6 of us made the effort and we had some great sailing in about 8 14kts until the wind died out around 1300 after a brief squall Great to have Kevin NZ327 join us after a 10 year rest Muriwai 15 9 13 Despite having made references about retiring on more than one occasion recently it was great to have Bill still blasting around the track with us again Bill and Phil snuck out last w e too and set a short course which was great for the younger learners they had with them but it made the older generation quite dizzy There were also more discussions on getting the 90 Mile Beach Enduro scheduled in during the summer or possibly Labour w e This has been a lot of fun in the past so we shall be working on making it happen again in the not too distant future The tides are such that with the increasing daylight it s

    of toing and froing but the rest of us barely got a ride despite numerous bouts of optimistic running A little disappointing as this was the 3rd weekend in a row we ve been let down by huey Despite the lack of sailing it was good to catch up and be forced into having a relaxing day after a busy work week We headed half a km or so north of the stream to escape the dog walkers and pretty much had the beach to ourselves except for the odd 4WD and motorbike wizzing by Phil turned up with a long time friend of his Hans Andersen my wife s cousin which was a bit of a surprise It s a small world Between the two of them they brought 3 youngsters who had a great afternoon pushing each other around and eroding the sand dunes They even got to go in Phil s C3 albeit slowly being pushed most of the time which was a real treat We ll try again in a couple of weeks fingers crossed lots of exercise today Posted in Uncategorized 4 August Muriwai cancelled due to lack of wind Posted on August 4 2013

    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 such a windless weekend to fly over Oh yes and exiting the normal way at the stream wasn t without its hurdle Without rain 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

    t seem too cold either infact very pleasant especially when the sun was out So the moral of the story is not to take too much notice of the forecast If my arithmetic is right we had 12 yachts turn up 3x c3 s and the rest mostly c5s It was great to have Roger Clem Darren and Desmond turn up from the BOP and see Francoise out on his new RGc5 Great to have Bill Nairn set up the course and come out to race in his c3 John O Donnell turned up but being straight from work was unable to bring his yacht so took on the OOD duties and did a magnificent job waving the flags at us Both classes got in a few races each and then at the end some of us headed down the beach for a few kms and back just as a wee rain squall came through with a top up of breeze John followed us in his car and clocked us doing around 90ks I was surprised how little speed difference there was between some of the c5 s and 3 s and it s made me wonder a bit as
