Sail-World New Zealand: 1 February 2010

Day 1 racing - 2010 OK Dinghy nationals and interdoms - Day 1: 2010 OK Dinghy Nationals & Interdoms  Adrian Rumney
Welcome to Sail-World.Com's New Zealand newsletter for 1 February 2010.

With the long weekend in Auckland, we are running a little behind, but haven't been idle.

On Saturday, Sail-World's camera was at the historic Mahurangi Regatta, on the picturesque Mahurangi harbour. It is the Big Day Out for Auckland's Classic Yacht fleet and the big gaff riggers really stole the show. It should be emphasised that these yachts are not just participating in some sail-past - but are raced hard, over a reasonably long course, and do very well.

More and more of these classics are emerging from the restoration shed, including one who debuted at Mahurangi after 11 years in the remaking. This was her first race - and did she look a picture!

We have two galleries of images from the day - just a very small selection of the 1200 images shot!

The America's Cup looks set to happen on 8 February, just one week away, with the last Court obstacle cleared, or rather deferred until a later date. Sorry, to those who have asked, we have absolutely no idea of the TV broadcast schedules or the stations who may be carrying the coverage.

The only rules issue on the table is the five matters raised by BMW Oracle racing, which will be the subject of an International Jury hearing this week. In this edition we look at the likely outcomes from the Hearing.

Sail-World will announce its coverage of the 33rd America's Cup on Tuesday evening. In the meantime we have some great images and video - including on board shots from USA-17.

The World OK Championships are about to get underway in Wellington, today, was the first day of the 2010 National and Interdominions - there is no report to hand as yet, but we do have an image gallery, which is the next best thing.

From Florida, USA, we have the reports from two competitors on how they fared in the Rolex Miami Olympic Classes Regatta, plus the yachting New Zealand reports on the New Zealand team's performance in the three events contested.
