    Fork had the previous record I think, Alive beat it by about 90min

    Launceston to Hobart

    FB page mentioned a clamp slipping 30mm so allowing water in?

    Launceston to Hobart

    So Alive has 11.5 hours to do 90 miles, avg of about 7.3 knots. Sounds easy for a 66ft yacht but it is the derwent!! Actually hope they don't break it as Fork is a race stalwart and it would be a shame to see a one off competitor break it, even if it is a Tassie yacht

    Launceston to Hobart

    I've had zero issues with the tracker. Alive has till about 8pm tonight to break the record. Looking like a light day between Maria and Tasman before a NW kicks in. Might come down to exactly what time the new breeze shows up as there should be enough to get her up there Derwent in good time

    On the boat on the Tamar, gusting 25k westerly here now so plenty of push coming!

    Launceston to Hobart

    High (ish) tide, plenty of depth really!! Been through there with a 5ft draft at low tide no problem

    Launceston to Hobart

    Watched the start today, bit rainy but was a nice day on the water. Alive was in another class boat speed wise but will be interesting if she can take the irc overall against a fleet of tassie club racers. Pogo 40's suck for sub 10k windward work. At one stage ( 30min into the race), the 80yo ketch was beating the Pogo!!

    Backstay Adjuster Line

    Assume you mean the line that goes to hand out of the purchase system? 4-5mm dyneema core with poly cover. I prefer something with a little looser cover. Makes it go through the pulley system a little easier

    Aussie/Kiwi ocean and club racers

    There's an Inglis 47 down here that has just had a heap of work done.............. - Keel, mast and chainplates moved aft - New spreaders, standing rigging and running rigging - New Keel, keel box and rudder - New bowsprit - Full new deck gear setup with 8 winches - All new sails except main, inc 0's and staysails - New motor,, full resparay Not what I would do with that boat but she's bloody beautiful now and the owner loves her, so I guess $$ spent locally is better than buying a boat from interstate or O/S. Apparently goes a far bit better too

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    When the original post said "returning" yacht, I assumed it was a Hobart based yacht, which Alive is not. 2020 entrants now removed from the CYCA webpage so I'm trying to recall the other Tassie entrants. Philosopher Sidewinder Midnight Rambler That's about all I remember
