    Beep Beep is heading off to Bay of Islands at 9:00 utc with YachtYakka on helm to send it through the night, 18hrs of fro weather, broad reaching in 20-30kt and 2-3 meter seas. 3 days of racing to be had with family and friends along, including a pirate packing Rum on the Drinks Trolley (24ft launch). Well matched prey awaits, time for Beep Beep to fly it's fruit and Beep Beeep! Wish us luck.

    Steve is sadly gone but his spirit and passion for sailing still lives on in all those he inspired. He was larger than life, full of enthusiasm and never gave up.

    In his last sail at the end of april, we won a gold cup in the Townson owners regatta, seemingly just for turning up and getting it on, it was more or less a forgone conclusion for the division we entered but a trophy's a trophy, so why knot!

    If I had any take home advise from my year sailing with Steve regarding how to win races, it'd be: Turn up, Go hard or go home and the best for last, We're not here to f*** spiders! which is sound advise when your drifting in a dead maggot.

    Thanks Steve

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
