Thanks as always to the #ssanz team for another cracking evening of festivities. Bring on the Triple series:) #livesaildie

A year ago today the Evolution Sails NZ #RNI2020 started in Auckland with a massive fleet of hardy sailors on an adventure of a lifetime, doing the lap of the North Island. Here’s a recap of the start of Leg 1 from Auckland to Mangonui from our mates at Live Sail Die! 2 years until the next #RNI ... See MoreSee Less

That RNZ was an epic adventure, definite bucket list item ticked off, but might have to do it again yet

See you all on Stewart Island in 2025 then 😃 - looking forward to that!

A crazy day. Can't believe it was 2 years ago and I can't believe Sally is open to going again!

Highlight 7 of 10 of the SSANZ 2020 recap - the adventures and legendary stories of the 2020 RNI like the one the boys on Deep Throttle - Shaw 9m Canter had to tell after they battled it all getting into Wellington Harbour, including a knock down with just the storm sails up! The RNI is legendary for the people you meet, the stories you craft, and the adventure that underpins it all! We cant wait to do it all again in a few years!Two very wary sailors got in early this morning after battling big breeze and dodging ferries.

The boat got laid flat in this configuration during the night with a peak reading through the wind gear of just over 60kts!

It’s an amazing effort by all the sailors involved getting through this leg. Nearly twice as long in distance as the Sydney to Hobart!

Rest up team. Get a couple decent feeds into you and Enjoy a normal bed.

Highlight #6 of 10 for SSANZ for 2020 was the little boat that could in the Evolution Sails NZ RNI. Ben and Nick made some big calls, sailed half way to Aussie as they headed down the west coast, had the most amazing attitude and got the job done with an awesome result and definitely became the fleet favourite! Not bad for the smallest boat in the fleet!Ok its time for a massive shoutout to Ben Beasley & Nicholas Gardiner on MV Sailing Elliott 7.9 - Moving Violation who are having a sensational leg! They held their own very nicely across the top of the North Island and then they headed off like they wanted to going to Australia, before jybing in and they have picked up the Northerly beautifully and are smoking it, from being last on line early yesterday they are now 26th on line and leading Div 4 on PHRF - Go Boys Go!!!!! ...
