2011 NZ Laser Nationals Photos on luvmyboat.com

Images from the NZ Nationals are available here at luvmyboat.com

I'm gradually adding more images to the site and should have about two hundred up by the end of the day. I have about 450 reasonable shots so anyone who can't see their photo is welcome to email me via the website and I'll have a look for them.

 
Membership to our site is free and I generally have a policy that if a member sees a photo of themselves and would like a copy I am happy to send them the file provided it is only used privately - ie have printed for their own use.
 
As a keen boatie, I appreciate how hard it is to get an action shot or decent photo of yourself as most people aren't stupid enough to try taking photos in large swells with lots of spray around.
 
Regards

Ryan Amlehn wins Nelson Junior Sportsman of the Year Award

Congratulations to Ryan, our Laser 4.7 world champion, on winning the Nelson Junior Sportsman of the Year Award.  It is a fantastic feat to win this award against such strong competition.  This year there were 18 nominations and Ryan was one of three very talented finalists.  All finalists were interviewed and Ryan was a clear standout with his confident, considered and honest answers to a range of questions.  Ryan spoke of his real passion for sailing, his heroes, his goals, his commitment, his appreciation of those who support and coach him, and of course his success both in New Zealand and on the world stage.
 
It was only a few years ago that Ryan entered sailing, in a wee black and white opti and I can vividly recall watching him weave, duck and dive and sometimes bounce of the other boats on the start line, always with a big grin on his face.  He has achieved a lot in only a few short years and I hope can be an inspiration to all our sailors, both young and old.  Well done Ryan and best wishes with your next goal.

Results from the 2010 South Island Laser Champs

The South Island Laser Champs were held at Nelson Yacht Club on the 11 and 12 December . The races were held approx 2 miles off the  harbour entrance.  Saturday was very light and shifty but Sunday produced a 13 – 15 knot steady NW wind.

Alex Morris once again took line honours in the Laser full rig.  George Lane from Auckland won the Radial and Ben Whiteside beat Daniel Smith by one point to win the 4.7 fleet. Ben was presented with a new trophy donated by the Mellor family from NYC for the 1st youth in the 4.7 class.
