New boats in the 50ft scene are providing great racing and attracting the rock stars. They dominated the stage at 2014 Bay of Islands Race Week in January. K ia Kaha, owned and skippered by Chris Hornell, dominated A Division at last year's Bay Week and Auckland Sailing Week but this year saw a new sheriff in town: a TP52 belonging to Harry Dodson and Tony Bosnyak – and that caused Mayhem. With some tidy work from Jim Farmer’s Georgia and Rob Bassett’s Wired, plus a Who's Who of New Zealand sailing, this year's Bay Week was a stunner. Kia Kaha recruited Team New Zealand sailors Richard Meacham and Jeremy Lomas; Brad Butterworth deftly called the shots on Georgia to take a couple of race wins, while Rob Salthouse and Peter Burling brought the big talent on Wired. The sportsboat fleet also had a few special guests as Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen joined their Artemis Racing teammate Phil Jameson and match racer LEFT: Division A winner, Harry Dodson's TP52 Mayhem.
