Well, I am in Auckland, Graf Spee is about to leave Sydney - tomorrow in fact to make her first ocean passage across the Tasman to Auckland!

We have relocated for work, after all, Auckland is sailing mecca!

Paul has a crew of 4 that are making the crossing - Paul, John B, Mick D, and Eddie.

The boat is packed and ready for the adventure, I will be the welcoming party - and our toy poodle Nikki when they make land at Opua around the end of May.
So good winds and fair sailing to the Graf Spee crew!!

M2G - passage race to Geelong

Graf Spee making her way to Geelong in the Melbourne to Geelong race last weekend.

We had two crew join us, Patricia L and Natalie S from RBYC. Patricia is a very experienced 'yachtie' who really got the best out of Graf Spee.

The photo is taken by Steb Fisher the 'official' picture man for the ORCV - and he has taken some great shots of us in action - not the sort of photos you get without sitting in a dingy watching the action pass you by!

We managed a respectable 3rd in our division which is great given it is our first real race and we managed it with a No 3 jib in 10 knots of wind - and yes we are thinking gennaker.

more photos to come!

zip wind and a great day for it

the day is sunny and warm but zip wind - we are struggling to find a breeze as we make our way up the bay.
