Holdt - Noelex 25 & Hartley 16 Nats n/a n/a

Napier Sailing Club will host the Noelex 25 nationals, Hartley 16s NZ class champs and the Kiwi Cup Incl NZ Access Class Champs 26-29 January 2011.

The N.Z. Noelex 25 Association will hold the 30th Anniversary National Championships of the Class and we invite any current or past Noelex 25 owners or sailors to attend the event which will include Registration, Safety Checks and the A.G.M.(with measuring and weighing if required) 3 days of racing and a prize giving and birthday function on Saturday evening. The regatta will include a championship and handicap series and a cruising division depending on entries. Competitors will be able to stay aboard their vessels on the water adjacent to the Clubhouse. We may have a couple of boats available for charter if needed. Come and celebrate a milestone of one of New Zealand’s true one design class yachts. Checkout the website or contact Paul Redman (paulredman@xtra.co.nz)

The Hartley 16s will also contest their New Zealand Class championship at Napier in conjunction with the Noelex 25s. In its 50th year the Hartley 16 seems to be joining the trend of older classes making resurgence with over 20 boats expected to join the regatta.

With the class strong in Manukau in the north, Napier in the east, it's now New Plymouth to the west which is having its boom time with several new (old) boats joining the fleet with sailors in their 20s (I thought these young guys needed fast sexy boats, maybe you just can’t beat close racing with good numbers)

2011 Kiwi Cup incorporating NZ Access Class Nationals will also sail at Napier. Sailability Hawkes Bay sailors will be keen to race their two new boats they have acquired recently.

Rio 2016 - Sailors talk of Life at the Extreme on the Atlantic Ocean
Certainly the Volvo Ocean Race catchcry of Life at the Extreme is not a phrase associated with the Sailing Olympics. The 470 crews were suffering the mixed emotions of survival of an extreme test by nature, the cold, and for some elation at their placings, after Thursday's battle for survival. In conditions that looked more out of the Volvo Ocean Race, than an Olympic sailing regatta, crews battled 20kt plus winds and Atlantic Ocean rollers that towered up to four metres.

Over shadowed by a 1300ft tall granite and quartz mountain in the shape of a sugarloaf, the bay suffers from dramatic windshifts, and huge variance in wind pressure.
