After a short postponement the 2015 Kapiti Chetwodes race got underway at 0630 Friday 6 February. Keep watch here for updates as the race progresses.


Advanced sea survival course

 P1070456Please remember that 40% of the crew on each boat in the Central Triangle must have completed an Advanced Sea Survival course within the last five years. For a crew of 5, this means that two crew must have completed the course. For crews of six or seven, this means three crew must have completed the course. For crews of eight, nine or ten, four crew must have completed the course.

We are aware of at least three boats that don't currently meet the 40% requirement.

We have asked Wellington Ocean Sports whether another course could be run before the race. This would be subject to minimum numbers. There are two possible course dates: 14/15 February, or more likely 28 February/1 March.

If you don't have 40% of your crew qualified, please contact Pedro on 021-476-514 or email  to register your interest in a course urgently.

(Note that the requirement for the advanced sea survival course does not apply to boats competing only in the Akaroa Race).

The Brothers Race - rip, shite and a little bust!

The forecast was daunting. Northerly 10 gradually rising to 25 in the morning and 40 by the evening. We all know you can add 20 more when travelling along the South Coast. 60kn on the way home? That would be interesting.
