The boys on Gale Force Racing are definitely into the numbers and these ones are INTERESTING! Anyone want to take a stab at the elapsed time for the first boat in each division for leg one???? Estimations, Guestimations and wild speculation welcome in the comments below.....I did a bit of trawl of the old race results to see how long the legs might take (for provisioning and shore crew travel plans). Its interesting stuff, so Sam suggested I post it here too. ... See MoreSee Less

Are you sure about those averages especially leg 1 fastest?

Truxton Sailing have found a spanner in the works but don’t worry the boys are getting it sorted! 20 hours until the start of the Evolution Sails NZ #RNI2020The fun never stops. Went to replace the rudder reference unit because the auto pilot was playing up and the whole mounting pole for the quadrant has broken free! 24 hours until race starts. Oh well nothing like a challenge. #RNI2020 ... See MoreSee Less

A lot of Stewart Islanders have seen that some old friends are racing, like - Pelagian, Gale Force, Titanium, Krakatoa, Arbitare, Katana, Truxton and Coppelia, and we heard Motor Boat is in there too (ask them to take a notch off the volume - it's keeping us awake at night). Whilst we wish all participants a safe and exciting race, a few will be cheering on some special boats (and their crews!). Good luck from us down here to you up there!

Wow those are nice.
