Race Number4

Am Meer is a production cruiser which has had minor modifications for sailing in Wellington and across Cook Strait.  We have had the yacht for about ten years and it gets used most weekends.  It not the fastest boat around the cans, but that is what club handicaps are for.

Apart from harbour racing, we regularly cruise the Marlborough Sounds and Tasman Bay.  We recently extended our cruising grounds to include Stewart Island.  We have been active in offshore racing, which in Wellington invariably means crossing Cook Strait where we have gained invaluable experience.  My wife and I also completed the two-handed, 800 nm Central Triangle race a few years ago.   We thoroughly enjoyed the race and that experience has encouraged me to turn my sights to the Solo Trans-Tasman Race.
