Akatea finishes second leg
25 Feb 2011
Akatea ghosted into Wellington Harbour to finish the second leg of the SSANZ Round North Island race well ahead of its competition, around 3pm today.
After a fast ride down the Kapiti coast, Akatea sat becalmed off Point Jerningham in Wellington Harbour for about half an hour before picking up the lightest of breezes and crossing the finish line.
The second-place boat, M1, is expected later tonight but the fleet is well spread out down the west coast, with the backmarkers still off Raglan.
