    Good paint job with a stealth bow you can be over slightly and get away with it...
  2. Did you sell your furling Assy or whatever you had extra with the boat? if not I might have a buyer.

    ........ to Noumea

    Frantic first of the Sydney fleet but it was close with Ran Tan from the Auckland fleet crossing 10 minutes before... Patrice is narrowly holding off Miss Scarlet in another Aus/NZ battle. Coverage from the Auckland side is good http://aucklandnoumea.com/news/

    Melbourne to Apollo Bay Race

    Nice, good to finish early arvo. Is Patriot ex-Moonspinner?

    Yep, a bit hard for PC to work out how to sail the thing when you're racing against symmetrical kite displacement boats. But that's the state of affairs in Melbourne, so if they race in Sydney against similar performance boats the learning curve would increase rapidly.

    Nice run home.

    Might be going for sailing lessons so they don't get beaten by nearly everything on the bay... http://www.topyacht.net.au/results/as/2017/nms/div1/01RGrp1.htm

    Melbourne to Apollo Bay Race

    Can be a cold race, only short to the finish but then most boats turn around and come back straight after so no post race party. Healthy entry list though, so hope they have a good run.

    Melbourne Osaka 2018

    Finished Sunday night. They have a big return trip planned so getting there was just the beginning.

    If you can afford to buy a TP52 you can do whatever you like with it. Scarlet Runner (the 52 footer) set a some records, King Island and others. Perhaps it's a case of buy it and they will come... might encourage a few other big boats onto the bay. The days of Shogun, Calm, Living Doll and others made the bay racing look good! This one's meant to be coming back to Aus, http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2008/Custom-R-P-63-3132620/CA/United-States#.WvKL46SFOM8

    If they wanted a TP52 to hoon around the bay on there's one sitting at Sandy (M3 / ex Calm) waiting for a new owner. If you're going to bother bringing one from overseas then I'd guess they have bigger plans.
