RNZ – The Lead Up.

An indepth look from three days out of the iconic SSANZ Round New Zealand Race. A cracking watch!

Words off Motorboat II for Leg 1 – “An awesome leg north, the boat really found its zone with a reef and the new Evolution A5 with breeze between 18-25 knots. We were able to keep enough height to stay close on the corners keeping the boat flat which really helped our VMG, the boat loved it! Not a lot of sleep was had, will have to work on that watch system thing on the next leg! Routing for Leg 2 looks predominately downwind at this stage, finishing sometime Saturday night if forecasts are to be believed.”
