If you’ve ever wondered why our sport is so damned strong in New Zealand, just look at this shot from down below on Ika Moana II during the famous Coastal Classic race from Auckland to Russell.  The country has more sheep than people and isn’t much bigger than a medium-sized US state, yet they pull 140 entries for this 120-mile race, including around 30 multihulls and literally dozens of full-family programs to the line.

The future looks bright in the Land of the Long White Cloud; take a chapter out of their book and make sure your kids learn to love sailing with you before you shove them into some Opti class and forget about ’em…

Coastal Classic thread is here.  Results here.  Awesome pic thanks to Gillian Williams, skipper of Ika Moana.
