Latest edition of the Bay of Islands Sailing Week News

Thursday is Theme Night sponsored by Southern Spars. Masks And Music – ‘now I wonder who that is’? – masks that won’t get in the way of eating Southern Spars yummy free finger food, while partaking in an ale, wine or two. (There’s music all three nights after racing.)

Lots of calls about the Island Racing Division – and it is a ‘yes’ for the cruising boats, ‘non-spinnaker’ division. If you need help with a decision on ‘which division’ – email Andrew
(register@bayofislandssailingweek.org.nz) or Ray at (chair@bayofislandssailingweek.org.nz. If short of crew why not try the new Three-handed Division.

And now we’re on Facebook thanks to Manuela Hornell from Opua Cruising Club – registered as 'Friends of Bay of Islands Sailing Week’.

Romeyn Woodcraft's trophy design for this year's regatta is 'The Hole in the Rock', rimu, logo, year, inset paua. Really worth winning your Division

And a little history? At 3 p.m. on Monday 27th November [1769], the Endeavour passed Cape Brett. The name Brett was given to the Cape because about a mile from it there is a 'high Island or Rock with a hole pierced thro' it like the Arch of a Bridge.' Brett's name was Sir Piercy Brett; 'and this was one reason,' says Cook, 'why I gave the Cape the above name, because Piercy seem'd very proper for that of the Island.' Brett's name, therefore, was given to the Cape to enable Cook, by calling the perforated island, Piercy, to perpetrate a geographical pun upon the name of Sir Piercy Brett.

There’s so much to do for those on-shore while the boats are out racing. Start out by looking at www.boiwalkways.co.nz – from the 10 minute walk up the hill Okiato to Russell – to 35 minute walks - to 2 hour walks and more; you also enjoy the 20 minute passenger ferry ride from Paihia to Russell. Lots of eating places and stores centrally located at Paihia, Opua, Orongo Bay and Russell. Also check out www.russellinfo.co.nz – (no eating places or shops at Orongo Bay)

How about BOISW Shirts? – DD GOLD our local designers are ready to take orders. There’s also a PINK insert instead of RED if so desired. And include your boat name/logo .
