    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    I've been reminded that it's been a few years since I stayed at the RORC in London. I'd love to have another beer with you. Are you bringing the Mrs too?
  3. BJ, you and me ( well maybe a few others) need to have a beer again. I’ll be in Hobart in February for the show, otherwise you know where I’m at.

    JW, I know that you did the second and the Mitchell Sails E7 did the first, I don't remember you doing the first. When did we pass you?

    No that wasn't Pillow, he didn't do a HCW to my knowledge. The pic above on the E7 reminds me of last Sunday, it was exactly like that conditions wise.

    S&S Design 2096 rebuild

    On the day the photo above was taken, we were racing 2 handed to Botany Bay and back. Some notable points of that day. We were alongside Diamond Cutter [Davidson 1 ton] going in to the bay. Coming back in the light NorEaster other 1/2s like Newspaper Taxi, Public Nuisance couldn't keep up with our big #1 heady. And yes I still have a couple of those yellow T shirts!

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

    We didn't chuck a pic out when we ran aground during a certain race, rather I seem to remember you having a beer instead with DCMJ doing all the panicking.

    Brisbane to Keppel 2018

    Defiance has a good ice box. However with freeze dried food these days, plenty of room for keeping drinks cold.

    Adam 10m

    MMmnn Adams10s eh? Did sail them for several decades. Yes there is one in England and one in Asia and I think in NZ too. In NSW they all sail one design and in Victoria they also race to their rating. The one in England was a good boat when racing in Sydney, haven't seen it since it went to Vic and then shipped to the UK. You can have a new one if so desired, I believe that Phil West can assist at Sheerline Spars. The moulds are still up at West Gosford. As for making the next $$$, I'd love to be able to pay myself.

    Mnn, Improbable. First boat I steered at well into double digits as a young fella, courtesy of Skip Allen. Always liked her as a result.

    Morning Cloud III

    Might have to pull out a very old shirt for the occasion. Note that the name was only on the stern, never on the topsides. Bret Scott Mainsail with a Hugh Treharne spinnaker.

    Sydney to Hobart 2017

    The man up the mast spotting for breeze was a brilliant move. You'll find they all do, they need a bloke up there to pop the top battens in the light. Spotter as well of course.

    RORC TransAtlantic Race

    Have an Aussie mate on Varuna, don't know the issue till he gets back to dry land and Facebook.
  22. That's why I like my spot on Boxing Day, got to love the exclusion zone flag!
  23. If you go out on one of the AC boats, make sure Mouse is on board. He'll point stuff out, then drink with you.
  24. Yes, Mr Porter....Hobart time?
