Originally "Loose Goose", built in 1982 by Wayne Page. Renamed Kuihi (Maori word for "goose") during a five year long repair and restoration by Mark Carter. The boat had been holed and abandoned after colliding with a whale 50nm off Port Waikato in 2007. It was relaunched in June 2012. "She’ll cruise along quite comfortably in 40 knots of wind, with just the mast" says Mark. "We’ve logged up to 19.9 knots, perfectly under control, running off in squalls."
