    Potentially a really quick boat but you'll need to allow a little time to remove the strange twin wheel arrangement and put a tiller back on it as per R Ps original design. Plus it doesn't run masthead kites at all so you would probably want to sort that to get it on the pace with your Auckland fleet. Price of the boat has plummeted recently but then the owners just signed up for their next ride on the weekend so they may be even more motivated now. Seller Anarchist 'Don' occasionally chimes in here.

    The woes at Royal Brighton continue. A while back they lost their slipway and boatyard and now they have seen the apparently terminally disintegrating Brighton Pier closed to all pedestrian and vehicular traffic indefinitely while they wait for Parks Victoria to work out how to fix it. On past form, it won't be anytime soon. Hearing that the crusty elite of that esteemed establishment now have to slip off the Raoul Mertons, roll up their Fletcher Jones and wade from the beach to step aboard rubber ducks for a damp joy-ride out to their boats on the marina or the hardstand. At least they don't have to take their socks off because,I am advised, trendsetters don't wear socks these days! Sadly, the pedestrian ban on the Pier didn't stop some low-life from breaching the perimeter fence and perpetrating a very nasty graffiti attack on at least one Member's boat on the hardstand. Such a shame they picked that particular boat when there's all those blank canvas Etchells just crying out for some distinctive artwork. May the full force of the law descend upon the cunts bastards with extreme prejudice. Question for the offender, how do you spell CCTV?

    Sydney to Hobart 2020

    Incredibly sad to lose GA, as you so rightly have written FO, one of the genuinely good guys who gave so much to our sport . Remembering his infamous speech at his 50th when he stood on a table near the BBQs at the old club house and proudly exclaimed to the gathering of crew mates, Club dignitaries and general riff raff who were all giving him grief about his age: "On the occasion of my 50th I have only one thing to say, you can all get fucked" Sail on GA. Great sailor, great bloke.

    Chucking chairs at his bint is not the only unsavoury issue with which Hollis has had involvement. Wonder if that will now come out? Something about the hurried repatriation of a famed international coach who knew too much about an indiscretion?

    Comanche sold again?

    You're only as good or bad as your last race. WOXI was dicked, big time. Even they admit that. Back to the drawing board or has that particular dead horse been flogged one too many times?

    Unravelling the great WOXI myth wasn't interesting enough for you? Has he sold Brinders yet?

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    Some of that crew at the Customs House in H-town were squealing like stuck pigs about being screwed by the IJ out of 3rd. Ain't Karma a Kunt? And from what we hear, she's only just warming up.

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    Something to ponder for the experts and otherwise. The Hobart can throw up all sorts of weather and sea conditions and rapidly changing tactical scenarios making it possibly the hardest of all offshore races to win. Ignoring the 5 x 100ft attention whore Super-Maxipads and leaving aside for one moment the all conquering TP-52s, what other boats in the 166 boat fleet do you reckon are capable of taking the win in this 75th Hobart?

    Ad price says $AUS455K Excluding Govt Charges?? I wonder if that means Import duties / GST are still payable? If so, she's way dearer than good TPs To quote the great Daryl Kerrigan, "Tell 'im 'es dreamin' "

    Windward Passage

    Agree, No 2, the preferred choice for fit and comfort. The other two handles shown were not around in 1985 although the recipient probably would have been able to "handle" either of them, such was her capacity. Still makes my eyes water to think about it after all those years.

    Very astute of you to notice. The point is FoS only got around to posting it on FB yesterday, probably because of lagging entries for their annual Geelong FunFest and Price Gouge and I did acknowledge that as the source in my post. A+ for reading but a big F for comprehension. Do try harder.

    Realising that you cannot beat a well sailed, well funded TP 52 under IRC and that just might scare off potential entries, Festival of Sails just posted this gem on FB

    Windward Passage

    Interior of Passage looking magnificent these days; much nicer than when I last saw it at the infamous 1985 Dock Party in Hobart. There were clouds of white dust and winch handles disappearing before my very eyes on that night. If WP could only speak, what tales she could tell.

    Nice work HB, slippery little suckers those RP36s in moderate breezes. Looks like a gift AMS rating for the new W N at .997 but then, its a relatively old design. Will be interesting to see how it rates IRC. Funny to still see boats heading way west of the rhumbline in this race. Has been happening for decades, someone always does it, never pays.
