Buzzing the Coastal Fleet

Two cool new videos from Josh who also did the West Coast Champs video. We went out this morning and buzzed the coastal classic fleet for a bit of fun. The Coastal Classic is a 130NM race up the coast from Auckland to Russell, that kicks off the summer sailing season in Auckland.

It ended up being a really windy sail in, 25 gusting 35 upwind, I had the whole main ragging and sailing inside the jib at times, was very impressed with how well the boat handled it! Still think I need to put a longer tiller extension on, dropped it once when I was sitting out on the ama, still the boat behaved beautifully, just eased a bit of main to keep the boat tracking.
