16/17 November  Ohope Blast

Hi Guys,

Best weekend to come down to Ohope for a sail would be 16th & 17th Nov.

Beach was looking great last time we were out as you can see from the photo.

We will be sailing from the “Ohope Beach Top 10 Holiday Park” Ph 07 3124460 for bookings. Low tide is at 1.00pm on the Saturday. Sailing from about 11.00am wind permitting till about 4.00pm. Only sail East of the camp.

A great day with some wind finally!  Down a bit on numbers due to AC racing and a late morning tide not being too compatible for some sailors but 6 of us made the effort and we had some great sailing in about 8-14kts until the wind died out around 1300 after a brief squall.

Great to have Kevin NZ327 join us after a 10 year rest!

Despite having made references about retiring on more than one occasion recently it was great to have Bill still blasting around the track with us again.

Bill and Phil snuck out last w/e too and set a short course which was great for the younger learners they had with them but it made the older generation quite dizzy!


There were also more discussions on getting the 90 Mile Beach Enduro scheduled in during the summer or possibly Labour w/e.  This has been a lot of fun in the past so we shall be working on making it happen again in the not too distant future.

The tides are such that with the increasing daylight it’s possible to sail every weekend at the moment, weather permitting.  So if it looks good the chances are we’ll be out there.

Keep an eye on the Calendar page.
