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.

SSANZ update from Zen

Finally made it to Tutukaka.  Ran out of gas today so no coffee.  Ran out of diesel just out of Tuts so sailed in as far as we could, got the boat flat, bled the system and snuck into the marina.  Mostly single handing which I really enjoy.  Had a great moment between Cape Reinga and North Cape. Reaching in 17 knots, I jammed the tiller extension into the leeward coaming and she steered herself beautifully.  Then a pod of 100 plus dolphins turned up and surrounded the boat.  I just left the tiller, walked to the bow and stood there watching for an hour.  Have strapped a big 9kg gas bottle to the transom, wheeled Mark up to his waiting wife and we’re off in the morning before low tide.  Another wee adventure, haven’t achieved what i wanted to but there are many others in the fleet worse off than us.  Slowly catching up with the appalling Christchurch news.  Great to see everyone pulling together.  Thanks for the messages of support from everyone.

Antarctic ships have searched through the night and covered 4000 square kilometres of the vast Southern Ocean in the past few days looking for the missing yacht Berserk.

Coordinated by the Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ), the Steve Irwin and the Professor Kromov have searched a vast area of the Ross Sea, including the entirety of McMurdo Sound and the entrance to the sound.

The Steve Irwin’s helicopter has been assisting from the air and will make another search again this morning, despite having been instructed there is no chance of refuelling from Scott Base or McMurdo bases on Antarctica.

The rescue mission was launched after RCCNZ picked up a signal from a distress beacon registered to the yacht Berserk about 5pm on Tuesday 22 February (NZDT). The yacht’s position at that time was 18 nautical miles (33km) north of Scott Base, in the Ross Sea. There has been no communication from the vessel since, and its distress beacon is no longer transmitting. There are believed to be three people on board.

Initial response to the MJ 90 discussion paper has been very encouraging with several recipients expressing interest in the concept. We have had a number of useful comments and suggestions on both the design and regatta format and have consolidated a number of these into a refined proposal. We have added more detail to the boat specification and approached a number of yards and spar shops to establish more accurate costings. Through these discussions we are comfortable that the build of six boats for the 2012 season is feasible providing we provide a detailed specification and firm orders by the end of 2010. To this end we would like to set an aggressive timetable that will allow us to move to a detailed specification within the next 30 days.

Final race decider as French team clinch Act 1 victory in Oman

It was what has become a classic Extreme Sailing Series™ finish to Act 1 at The Wave, Muscat, Oman. The all-French team of Groupe Edmond de Rothschild clinched victory in the final double points race at the end of an astonishing 32 races over 5 days. “I didn’t know what to expect in terms of emotion in the case of victory, I didn’t have time to digest it as my crew threw me in the water,” said an emotional Pierre Pennec who was in tears at the finish. “I am very emotional as it’s a lot of work, a lot of personal investment. It’s a long time now that I wanted to drive an Extreme 40, and winning ahead of all these champions, it’s amazing.”

Two races from the end, and the entire top 7 boats could in theory still win the event! With 22 points available in the final seventh race of today, both Artemis Racing and Red Bull Extreme Sailing were able to take victory, but in the end Terry Hutchinson’s Artemis Racing finished in 4th place, one place ahead of Pennec’s men who had therefore done enough, Terry commented: “It’s good to see that all our hard work since the end of 2010 has paid off but there is still much room for us to improve. We’re having a little bit of a crew rotation for Act 2 in Qingdao, so there will be lots of work to do”.  Act 2 of the Extreme Sailing Series will be staged between the 15th to 17th April in Qingdao, China, preceded by two open-water racing days.

The Soto 30 One Design is an evolution rather than a revolution. The new design takes on many of the most recent trends in high-performance yacht racing, then simplifies them into a new 30 foot classic. Designer, Javier Soto Acebal, has not just shrunk the successful Soto 40 One Design, he has come up with something that will suit the club racers as well as the One Design enthusiasts. There has been a lot of attention to ‘cleaning up’ many of the sailing systems so that you enjoy more of your time racing rather than tripping over clumps of sheets and general cockpit chaos. Rather than trying to be everything to everyone, the Soto 30 is simply a fast, affordable one design yacht capable of the full excitement of blistering downwind speed but accompanied with beautifully balanced sailing, the very latest in foils and robust construction. By avoiding the compromises of handicap systems, Javier Soto Acebal has designed a clean, efficient hull which does exactly what it’s meant to do – provide long-term one design racing in a well-constructed, affordable racing design. The yacht is shipped, ex-factory with a very high standard specification.
