    Default 2009 NZ Postal classic

    Hi Footy sailors!
    time already to announce the 3rd edition of my postal race.

    Hopefully we can increase on last years numbers,the footy class is maturing and I am still keen to see this style of racing which I believe has much to offer.




    3rd annual New Zealand postal classic

    Notice of race
    Footy class internet model yacht race
    Racing period is 1st July 2009 31July 2009

    Submit your best time for 3 laps around a 50 foot course with the windward mark fixed and the leeward mark attached by either a sunken or floating line of 50 feet in length.



    Entries must be sent via e mail to bsmack@es.co.nz
    anytime from the 1st July until the 31st July 2009
    We would encourage pictures of the course and boats sailing.
    A e mail address of a witness who can verify your race results is also required.
    Proof of mearsurment may be required,this will be via e mailed picture of the boat in the mearsurment box.

    No results or times will be published until the close of racing.
    The organizers decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.

    The racing period is over,My thanks to those who competed in this novel form of model yacht racing.

    Results 2009 NZL postal classic

    1st Bill Hagerup USA razor 3 3 min 48 sec
    2nd Frank Thorley USA FF-2 4min 03 sec
    3rd Gary Sanderson GBR Mongoose 4min 09sec
    4th Chris Huntington USA FF-2 5min 48 sec
    5th Steve Huntington USA FF-2 5min 55sec


    There was only the 5 entries,in this the 3rd year of the event I consider this a dismal failure,obviously this style of racing is not what anyone wants.At this point I wouldn't bother trying to promote these races anymore.
