    Yeah but those 50 footers were parked at Tasman Island for 8-10 hours watching the fleet sail up and around them, the race for them started again half way across Storm Bay.

    This is the Bradbury Syndrome....The front runners all get DSQ and a 30 footer comes through at the right time when the smoke clears and gets the win

    Windward Passage

    Last I heard she was in Italy and called Il Moro de Venezia...… that was like 25 years ago though. She was the prettiest maxi going when she was launched IMHO and was my dream boat as a 12 year old boy! Her predecessor WP1 certainly holds her age well, much better than most boats ever will, a timeless classic.

    Most economic way is to just build a new hull/deck reuse everything else. rig, rigging and sails is the big ticket items.

    Farr 1/2 Tonner

    If this is Hot Bubbles 2 she was a Townsville boat (north QLD) in the early mid 1980's when i was a young lad (10yo) and owned by a local solicitor "Clive Scott". She may have even done the Cairns to Port Moresby (PNG) ocean race during his tenure. Back then she was dark blue with 2 white stripes under the gunwalls. Always thought she was a sweet boat. Back then we had a few 1/2 tonners in the club... 2 Holland 30's "Pride Of Oleron" & "Golden Era" my parents had "Waaratah" a Waarschip 1/2 tonner originally from Sandringham Vic. Hot Bubbles 2 the Farr 30.

    I think Mayfair (Beneteau First 40) could be purchased and race ready..... (based in Brisbane but could still be in Hobart afaik?)

    Didnt Windward Passage 2 become " Il Moro De Venezia" ? What happened to Cookson 12 No Fearr? I have fond memories of her... We won everything in 1996 except the Sydney - Hobart that i missed because my misses (ex misses) at the time wouldnt let me go!!!!! Was a rocketship!!! Last i heard she had a sweptback rig and used for shorthanded racing. Was arguably the best C12 ever.
