2014 New Zealand Nats @Takapuna for Peter Burling

TNZ Peter Burling won over Ahsby and Landy,  we don´t  know which were the weather conditions though. Only info available are Results.  Top ten below , full list at http://www.sailingeventstakapuna.com/bweb-information/nz-national-results/

Report and great pictures by Richard Gladwell / Sail World here


Kaenon Team interview: Burling & Ashby by Sail-World here, really interesting comments. Left still from SW video: Peter seems to be using standard Js foils and 'L' rudders a la Fischer concept. Check it in the video above at 1:32. Ashby is remarking they are using "pretty standard" setup too. 

Yesterday we commented that Steve Brewin might be racing standard C setup + wingltes on his Nikita, setup used by Steve to win Barcelona Europeans against some flying capable boats. 

I Hope to be the case (although he might be the last Crusader if they end having a high winds event)  and for the fleet to have good mixed weather conditions for the Worlds next week. Whichever the case, lets have the still simple current equipment to perform over the awful 'franken' & draggy foil stuff I've seen in some pics, also over the complex and unpractical cassette case.
