Wild Days Rum Tours here

Wild Days Rum, available at all liquor stores on Waiheke Island – more here

When I told friends in Sydney that I was sitting on a beach in New Zealand the comment was met with no small amount of wonderment. New Zilund, for the record, does have beaches. Very nice ones at that. It was whilst en route to one of my favourite spots in the Auckland region – Waiheke Island’s Onetangi Beach – that I came across another surprise for my Australian friends. New Zealand makes rum too.

Broken Rigs and boats in the SSANZ RNI Leg 2

Davidson 42 Mr Roosevelt has lost her rig on the second leg of the Round North Island race, and is heading for New Plymouth under motor. This is the fourth boat to withdraw this leg, after Danaide pulled out yesterday afternoon with steering problems, and Zen, The Night Train and Gale Force withdrew earlier. The latter three boats are heading back around North Cape to Mangonui. All crews are safe and well,

From Nonstop 8.51

Just had a brief call from Pete to say that they are taking quite a hiding at the moment. Big sloppy seas that are knocking the boat around and tiring the guys as a consequence. If it gets too much rougher they may look at heading in to New Plymouth to sit out the worst of the weather. Having sailed that coast in a far larger boat I know what those swells can be like and as the withdrawals start to stack up it’s certainly not going to be a leg for the fainthearted. From the tracker you’ll see that Nonstop is headed quite a bit further offshore than some of the other boats. The theory behind this is that, when the forecast wind change comes through Nonstop will be sitting on the right side of the windshift and have a far more comfortable passage than some other members of the fleet. At the moment to quote Pete “it’s rough as, we’re wet and tired and can’t wait for things to change”. What’s not helping of course is the fact that they spent a huge amount of energy repairing the backstay in the early hours of this morning off Cape Reinga. Looking further forward, if the weather forecast is right the guys could have a really tough time of it in Cook Strait as the weather for Saturday isn’t looking that great at the moment, in fact it looks plain ugly.

Aberdeen Asset Management Saves Another UK Sailing Event.

Aberdeen Asset Management, who recently announced a deal to become the title sponsor of Cowes Week has saved another UK sailing festival by becoming the title sponsor of the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival. While Cowes Week would have continued to run in some manner without commercial backing, the Scottish Festival was described as being in serious jeopardy.

The Aberdeen deal is for three years and seems to be more in line with corporate responsibility factors than return on sponsorship investment.

The annual festival takes place in Portsoy and attracts up to 16,000 visitors from the UK and overseas, except when there is bad weather –

From a story by Nancy Knudsen

…………..Two pirates bragged that they ordered the executions. ‘Our colleagues called us this morning, that they were being attacked by a US warship,’ one of them, identified only as Mohamud, told Reuters. ‘We ordered our comrades to kill the four Americans before they got killed.’

Killing hostages ‘has now become part of our rules,’ said another pirate who identified himself as Muse Abdi. He referred as a turning point to last week’s sentencing of a pirate to 33 years in prison for the 2009 attack on the U.S. cargo vessel the Maersk Alabama. The sentencing had occurred just two days before the hijacking.

‘From now on, anyone who tries to rescue the hostages in our hands will only collect dead bodies,’ Abdi said. ‘It will never, ever happen that hostages are rescued and we are hauled to prison.’

The yachtsmen were reportedly killed during negotiations for their release

Four Americans who were taken hostage last Friday aboard their yacht by pirates off the coast of Yemen were killed by their captors on Monday. Jean and Scott Adam, a California couple who had sailed their 58ft sloop, M/V Quest, for 50,000 miles since 2004, and Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle, of Seattle, Washington, were killed by gunfire.

“We express our deepest condolences for the innocent lives callously lost aboard the Quest,” said Gen. James N. Mattis, U.S. Central Command Commander, in a statement.

A Somali pirate told the Associated Press (AP) by phone that if the yacht was attacked, “the hostages will be the first to go.”

“Some pirates have even suggested rigging the yacht with land mines and explosives so as the whole yacht explodes with the first gunshot,” said the pirate, who gave his name as Abdullahi Mohamed, claiming to be a friend of the pirates holding the four Americans.

Wide Open! Day of comebacks ahead of the final day tomorrow

On the penultimate day of racing at Extreme Sailing Series Act 1 at The Wave, Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman the action came thick and fast, with both Red Bull Extreme Sailing and Team New Zealand delivering the most outstanding performances of the day. Roman Hagara and the crew of Red Bull Extreme Sailing, lying in 5th overall going into today, are now on the podium lying in third place after 25 races: “We are really happy now we are third overall and it’s great for us. We are almost beginners and it is the best result so far and I hope we can continue.”  For Dean Barker and the boys on Team New Zealand it was an even better day, climbing from 7th to 4th in the rankings: “Today everything fell into place really well and we had a fantastic day on the water and managed to get some good solid results.”

A total of eight ‘stadium’ races were staged off The Wave, Muscat that saw six different teams claim at least one race win, Team New Zealand scored two first places and the all-Italian team Niceforyou delighted in their first race win of 2011. Groupe Edmond de Rothschild, helmed by Pierre Pennec, were consistently good enough today to hold on to their top place ranking, just 7 points ahead of Terry Hutchinson’s Artemis Racing. With 11 points for a win, and 22 points on the final race tomorrow, its wide open in the top half of the leaderboard.

The short and demanding courses raced within the constraints of the stadium saw the on-water umpires dish out multiple penalties.  The most dramatic incident of the day came when Torvar Mirsky’s The Wave, Muscat suffered a collision with Alinghi, and very nearly ended up on the breakwater boulders. The Wave, Muscat has been craned out tonight to undergo a long night of repairs but the team has confirmed they will be back racing tomorrow and they are still very much in the game lying in 5th place overall. Only 2 points separate Luna Rossa in 6th place and Alinghi in 7th. Right now, 7 of the 11 teams could still win Act 1 of the Extreme Sailing Series with multiple races to come and double-points up for grabs in the final race.
