The build up begins! After a huge year of mods it's time to get out and do some yachting! Sailutions is looking fantastic and ready for some sea time!
I am very excited to be joining the amazing fleet competing in the Shorthanded Sailing Association of New Zealand Northern Triangle.

Bravo Tugdual Piriou !!!

Cooker bracket Mk 1. The cooker was made by Cookie and has been borrowed from Provincial Cowboy Yachting. Ok so maybe this is function over form but it works nicely - it was worth holding on to some old Fibrefoam Tornado mainsail battens! Note also the classy use of old tiller extension parts for the gimbal bit! We’ll set it up so the arms can fold back when not in use. P.s. Legendary T sail number NZL75. #evolutionsailsnortherntriangle Shorthanded Sailing Association of New Zealand ... See MoreSee Less

Racing in paradise - who wouldn’t want to compete in the New Caledonia Groupama Race in June 2022? Our mates on V5 Racing are registered to race - and we reckon you could do this race and get back in time for the start of our 2022 Triple Series!

For all the details and to enter - check out the race page!🎯 Le 1er inscrit est Néo-Zélandais ! 🇳🇿 Le skipper Brian Petersen connait la course pour y avoir participé deux fois 🏝🏝
En 2018, à bord de Ran Tan II (un Elliott 50) il termine second, juste derrière Miss Scarlet et Franck Cammas.
Cette fois-ci, le skipper kiwi revient autour du plus grand lagon du monde avec V5 Racing, un TP52 de première génération. Son bateau rapide, très toilé, à quille basculante mesure un peu moins de 16m 💪
Initialement conçu pour la Trans Pacifique, ce voilier de course 🚀 a appartenu à Simon Hull, vainqueur de la Groupama Race en temps réel, à bord de Vodafone en 2016.
👌 Tester la Groupama Race, son organisation, son village, son ambiance : c’est l’adopter !! Brian est donc de retour pour la gagne🏆… du moins nous lui souhaitons !
