    If i was too die let it be at sea its my been life, job,pastime,sport unfortunatly the people i race with would have to deal with the crap and the key board wankers putting their cents worth in Met a guy once aged mid 70s discharged himself out of a nursing home in UK ,he bought a yacht based himself out of the Azzores. I asked why does he sail by himself his reply "didn't want to burden anyone" if my number is up If one day and the doctor tells me my number is up soon I'M GOING FOR A LONG SAIL would enjoy it rather than stuck in a nursing home sport is sport we love what we do and i for am sure my family would understand if an accident happened

    I think RAGAMUFFIN 100 will get over the line 1st if whitty is still sailing ,he has learned/improving a lot since the start of the Volvo learning from the big boys now !!!!!! compared to the start also the mistakes they made sailing Rags's when launched and at Hammo. Where do think Richo would be if he was skippering a Volvo yacht ???

    Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    Yep I will agree about the racing why did we start at midday for a race up the Flipping channel on sat then finish at 1530 to hang around till 1730 for another race and finish at 2100 by the time you pack up and get the bar it was after 2000 hrs , then sunday starts at 11.00 finish towards 1500 hrs then have a slog home to Melbourne arriving after 2100 hrs. Why do they set a course up the channel thats not fair racing . Sandringham was great racing a couple of short races each day ,fair courses. I will not be at Geelong next year.

    VOR 2017-18

    Is this a Volvo thread or a GG thread ? Personally i know the GG would be on the bucket list Volvo doesn't excite me , it used too i tried for a whitbread as crew didnt make the cut.Yes still follow it but too old in the tooth As a sailor i think the raw seamanship aspect, celestial,no Computers,outside assistance hand/wind vane steering, affordable yachts. Bring back the good old days. Bring back the old days off Whitbread /maxi Racing.
