SAILING Kerikeri Cruising Club Fun division results November 11. Another overly-pessimistic weather forecast meant that some crews opted out of what was a great afternoon's sailing. Seven boats joined the F-division rally for a double circuit of the Inlet race marks, during which the wind actually dropped, contrary to the gloomy prognostication. After complicated mathematical analysis, the winner was declared to be Perigrine -- Ross Laurie, followed by Waiolai -- John Durham, and Aperitif -- Trixie Newton. La Pajara -- Max Sceats was the undisputed winner of the greater crested booby prize for the novel method of departure from their marina berth. Next fun division rally is November 25, briefing 12.30pm at KKCC club house. You do not have to be a KKCC member to join the F-division rally and cruising yachts are welcome. For further details contact Trixie Newton 09 407 8579 or Max Sceats 09 407 8853.

Spurred on: Spectators cheer at the finish line of the State Paihia Classic Swim 2012. Photo: SIMON WATTS Paihia kicks off swim series There was a great turnout of spec- tators and entrants alike in the first round of the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series on Saturday. The English Channel record holder, Trent Grimsey proved too classy in the State Paihia Classic winning the 3.3 kilometre swim from Russell to Paihia in a time of 40 min 34 sec. The 24-year-old Queenslander blitzed the field in a decisive win one minute ahead of New Zealand s leading hope and defending series champion Kane Radford, who fin- ished just ahead of Auckland s Phil- lip Ryan and Trent Grimsey s younger brother Codie, who was fourth. Grimsey s win continues an out- standing year. In September, he shaved two minutes off the record for the Eng- lish Channel, recording a time of 6 hours 55 minutes. He also won this year s FINA open water swimming grand prix circuit. In addition, he is a three-time Australian open water champion and the current New Zealand Open Water 10km champion. In the women s race, New Ply- mouth s Charlotte Webby was even more dominant. She won by more than two and a half minutes, ahead of 17-year-old Aucklander Kirsty Wannan. For full results visit oceanswim.co.nz. Both Webby and Grimsey earned 100 series points for their wins, as they chase the $20,000 grand prize for the series winner. The other rounds include Auck- land s iconic State Harbour Cross- ing on December 2 and races in Wellington, Akaroa, Mount Maunganui and Takapuna in the new year. Drivers relish fine track In the lead: No 53 Nick Caldwell races ahead of Ray Dare and Shirley Andresen in the limited and super saloons at Kaikohe Speedway. From an excellent track comes great racing. This saying has never been truer from the racing that unfolded at Kaikohe Car Club's race day on November 11.Club president Mad Max Andresen's track preparation during the two nights before the meeting, showed his ability to prepare a superb driving surface. Racing was hard and fast through all four rounds. The limited and super saloons were first out of the gates and Nick Caldwell led the race from the green to the chequered flag. In the second round, he who dares Ray Dare came home first with the third and fourth rounds going to Nick Caldwell. Dave Cortesi and Daniel Field vied for the placings in C grade saloons, the final tally was two wins apiece. The men's production races had Myles Greenwood chasing Rex Roycroft to the line in all four rounds. Mad Max Andresen drove Shirl the Girl's super saloon and led the final feature race of the day, the saloon all-in. Kaikohe Speedway's next race meeting will be held on November 25 at 1pm. The club canteen will be open for refreshments. Photos and links to videos from the race day, can be found at kaikohecarclub.com as well as more information about the club.
