Accolades for MRX Fleet

 The competitors and the RNZYS complemented the MRX Fleet on the quality of its presentation for the 2008 NZ Match Racing Championships.

Given the test the boats are put through in a match racing contest of this type its great to have these complements from some of the best sailors and match racers in the world!

Thanks are due to our sponsors and supporters - without your assistance this tribute could not have been achieved!

Thanks specifically in no special order to:

  • Hall Spars and Tim Lidgard for his assistance in equalizing the fleets rigs

  • Touch of Gloss for their work above and below the waterline giving the boats even speed and keeping them looking great - Ben has some more work for you Dale!

  • North Sails team for the maintenance of the sails and the new No 1 genoas - well now almost new!

  • Harken hardware as reliable as ever - the only hardware which needed servicing during the regatta was 1 winch handle and 1 winch neither of which was Harken

  • Ovlov Marine and Volvo Penta - the engines are running like a charm - not the slightest beat missed.

  • KPMG, Club Marine and Yachting Developments for their invaluable complementary support making it all possible.

  • Team NZ - for their support for the fleet and expertise and assistance with equalizing the boats

  • RNZYS - for their ongoing support of the fleet

  • Patrons John Street, Kim McDell and partners for conceiving a fleet of this standard, durability and reliability in the first place
