Not quite the America's Cup but "Alinghi Rules" used at 2008 Manly Pole Race

The "Auld Mug" at Manly Sailing Club is the McMillan Cup which is contested "annually on an arm of the sea". That arm of the sea is the same one each year and is that patch of sparkling warm waters of the Hauraki Gulf contained within the 7 nautical miles from Manly Beach to "the Pole" off Orewa Beach and back. The race is famously known as the "Manly Pole Race". Over the years the tradition and kudos associated with winning this coveted trophy has steadily risen and with Laser World Champions Mark Page (winner 2005) and Murray Thom (winner 2006) adding their names to the esteemed list of winners etched on the cup the desire to win the "Auld Mug" has only grown.

Hi Mike,
No problem, it happens all the time. I think the link is interesting and please feel free to post any articles about laser sailing you find across the net. TLF is a great distraction when there is work to do, so the more to look at the better!!

Cheers,
