It was great meeting a few TIWAL sailors in Sydney for a sail around the harbour. In the afternoon the sun came out and a nice breeze filled in for a spectacular sail around Middle Harbour and Balmoral.
TIWAL CUP NZ 2023
The TIWAL NZ fleet had a great day at Maraetai on Saturday. The weather was great and we started the day with lots of fun and laughter with an assembly race, followed by beach starts, short races, a shared picnic and a longer course in the afternoon. Congratulations, John Rusk, from Wellington, for winning the TIWAL Cup! On Sunday a few hardy sailors braved the slightly wet conditions at Royal Akarana Yacht Club for a harbour course. Thank you to the owners for making this a special weekend. We are inspired to keep the events going over the summer and look forward to more days on the water together. Thank you also to the supporters of TIWAL, Rob Dickson, Anna Wirth-Hogan and Tim Hogan, who helped us on the day.
TIWAL CUP NZ 2021
We were very fortunate to have a great family sailing day for the TIWAL NZ Cup, held in the beautiful Mahurangi before another lockdown was announced the same evening. Eight TIWALS sailed in a gentle breeze around Saddle Island and down to Scotts Landing for a picnic in the park. The wind increased later in the day, giving competitors a chance to stretch out and enjoy a speedy sail back to Sullivans Bay. The winners of the event were Zane and Anna Gifford. Zane Gifford is an accomplished New Zealand sailor who has won National Championships in several classes including P Class, Young 88s (multiple times), and Elliot 7s. Second place went to the youngsters of the event, brothers Boaz and Simeon White of Hamilton, and third place to Jocelyn Morgan of Waiheke Island. John Rusk travelled from Wellington for the event, and although he missed out on the Sunday event, the RNZYS Auckland Harbour Bridge to Bean Rock, due to COVID, he said sailing in beautiful Mahurangi and meeting other TIWAL owners was well worth the long drive. A few boats missed out on the TIWAL NZ Cup due to changed schedules and COVID lockdowns, but we hope to get another event organised soon for those who missed out.
