The first domestic race meet of 2011 saw a great line-up of cars at the Kaikohe Speedway. With 11 grades, visit- ing drivers and a fast track, spectators were not disappointed. The Production men were out first, with Ray Dare 888 taking the win inrounds1,3and4and Grant Kidd first in round 2. The second race saw 11 super limiteds and B grades grace the track for a mixed event. Vet- eran racer, Ray Jordan, dominated the super saloons for the first three rounds. Visiting limited saloons driver Lyndon Morrison took three wins off the local boys. Production ladies lined up for their 20-lap tro- phy dash in this mixed grade. The racing was fast and tight with Wendy Scott 12 emerg- ing the victor, holding on to this trophy for the third year in a row. Boss Harris took out the super production trophy. The next race meet is on February 6 and plans are well under way for the Easter Stampede, three days of hard-out racing at its best. Friday will host the CTRA champs and Saturday and Sunday will be the fast and the furious. Visit www.kaikohe carclub.com for more information. Drama on the high seas Bay of Islands at its best: A great day for sailing A sporting chance: Orange Peeler crew put their sports boat through its paces Sailing a smash hit: Party in the Bay after the race. Team Vodafone screamed across the Bay from Opua at over 34 knots. Safer to stay clear of this missile -- she was almost airborne. Other yachts made an impression in less fortu- nate ways. M1 ripped off a spreader in the 2nd race on day one, then Tongue Twister experi- enced compression and lost her mast. Advantage lost it in the last race (Passage Division), with the mast over the side in three pieces. Meanwhile, Playbuoy and This Way Up had a confrontation early in the regatta -- with the latter over in the boat yard for the rest of the week. But despite the drama on the high seas, the yachties gave the 2011 Bay of Islands Sailing Week 10 out of 10 for being a successful and fun regatta. Vaughan Clark on Sweeney Todd went home the victorious winner. The three-day regatta in the Bay of Islands offered intense competition and challenged the yachtsmen and women to take it to the top. One hundred and thirty-three boats (about 1000 crew) registered to do just that -- test their skills against other enthusiastic yachties. This regatta is only poss- ible through the generos- ity of sponsors and the dedication of volunteers.
