A diferent kind of boating

                                                The writer at the helm of Steinlager 2

A week away from heading back to France and Antiope, I had the opportunity to sail aboard Steinlager2 on the annual Auckland to Tauranga race. We were frustrated by light winds, so no glory for us, the small boats beating us on handicap, but for me a great experience.

                       After a complete refit, Steinlager 2 looks as good as she did 25 years ago 

Steinlager 2 was sailed by Sir Perter Blake in the last Whitbread, Round the world  race. She still holds the record for winning all 5 legs of the race.
                 Bags are packed, the next post should come from on board Antiope.
