    One would think sail boat racing would be booming in a place like that!

    And you have no idea how funny "double secret probation" is at so many levels and about do many people.

    At last, someone smart has identified the $133 000 question. Sure taken everyone long enough and it is not even a local who identified it. Should the National Authority be doing business with contractors (the club) that have opaque and arbitrary protocols, allowing for the exclusion of competitors for unpublished reasons? We can all go home now as Australian Sailing are only going to go one way on that one.

    Quite the opposite actually colonial outpost of the empire being harassed by a few unruly natives send a gunboat up a muddy river ,kill a few natives and peace will return pretty quickly only problem is that Kurtz and Willard might be waiting up river see the problem with leaving people no where to go is that you create suicide bombers and my bet is aust sailing just created two of them

    Don’t see some AS office flunky coming out to south west cape in a tax payer funded RIB to get my capitation fee either

    Couta, we seem to agree on most things but mate, you are bit late on this one. I formed that view about 10 years ago so but we are taking the big powerboat around to the West Coast for three weeks in late January. You are welcome to bring your boards as we have some top spots.

    But isn’t the point that there is no requirement or right to have a hearing. An untested allegation is enough and not subject to review. At least that is the position of the angevin kings at Australian Sailing which we don’t get to vote for so can’t change. Clever point to make.

    Personally I would exclude every IRC boat with a French assessed hull factor from Hobart, but that is just me! At least that is objective criteria though in terms of what the good Commodore wrote. You can say as an objective fact the assessment is inconsistent with local assessment of HF

    TS it is clever reference to the fact as individual sailors we do not to vote for the board of Australian Sailing just the peasants did not get to vote for John or Henry but from 1257 there was a parliament of sorts ( 3 from the church, 3 from the king and balance from the barons from memory) which morphed into a Westminster System. As I said too clever to be a sock from around here.

    Not sure he is a sock, far too clever to be from around here. Writes well too which also rules him out. Makes a serious point though which again rules him out a sock. Beside there would not be 5 people on the entire site that could name the Angevin Kings.
