2014 Cup Regatta

For those who wish to relive some of the 2014 Cup Regatta racing.

We have the final stage of Race 1 where the fleet took on a south westerly 40 knot storm front that hit the fleet in the final part of the race. This video is a but long but it shows what the effect of gusts from the shipyards. Close the the video end watch  Fair Winds go down. C97 also had many moments. Unfortunately the distance to the fleet is a bit too far to see the real action. The video’s were taken by a phone from the rescue boat that had to stay back to cover the following fleet

The second is a short video of Fair Winds on a tight reach from R4 to channel mark 19. Fair Winds was crewed and skippered by members of the Classic Yacht Association of New Zealand

Another video of the fleet approaching and rounding Channel mark 19 will be added later.
