National One Design Competition Launched

For Immediate Release: YACHTING NEW ZEALAND - OFFICIAL MEDIA RELEASE

Date: Thursday 1st August 2002 Issued By: Louise Andrews - Communication & Projects Coordinator

National One Design Competition Launched

The Keel Boating and Off Shore Racing Committee (KORC) are running a National One-Design competition in association with Yachting New Zealand. Designers are invited to submit an entry for a Monohull Keel Boat which adheres to a specific list of criteria.

There have been very few competitive racing oriented keelboats built for NZ based owners, and our keelboat racing fleets are ageing and rapidly falling behind the current international standards. KORC has taken the initiative to give some direction and growth to the New Zealand keelboat scene by promoting the concept of a National One Design Keelboat Class.

The concept of a design competition has been used in the past to develop classes such as the K class. It is hoped that we will see the development of a new modern, and innovative class that will have the impact and longevity of the Stewart 34 class but at a national rather than just a regional level.

For further information on the background of the competition, along with rules and entry details visit the Yachting New Zealand website: http://www.yachtingnz.org.nz/135_1/135_1_top.cfm?pageid=346&parentid=21

Entries must be received by 1700hrs NZST, Friday 22 November 2002

The winner will be announced by 28th January 2003

~ Sponsored by Safety at Sea ~

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: The French Dispatch - Wes Anderson's New Yorker Tribute


Very few contemporary American film directors can claim to have earned the title of auteur, but for sheer visual invention and cinematic joie de vivre, there is no more consistent director working in Hollywood today than Wes Anderson. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.
