Howzat - 2015 SSANZ Race 2
Howzat, the modified Whiting Half Tonner, is presently competing in the SSANZ (Short-handed Sailing Association of New Zealand) Two-handed regatta, made up of three races of various lengths around the Hauraki Gulf. Howzat finished second in the "Shorthaul" division in lighter conditions in the first race in July, and this sequence was taken soon after the start of the second race (Saturday 8 August) - conditions were pretty moderate to start with, but a classic wintery squall soon ripped through the fleet and I was able to catch Howzat on the burst in this sequence below. They avoided putting the boat completely down the mine, and after recovering from their broach she went on to finish the race in tenth place on corrected time.
