    Fareast Sails

    I would not be complaining if Sandy Goodall was designing sails ! ..... Top Shelf !........ he has a long history with the Smar Azure sail design program.... but you will find that it will be based upon libraries that he supplied for the program.

    yeah... good news for all..... We have been seeing some crazy weather this year..... Today in Sydney will top out at 35 degrees C when it should be more like 22 degrees C..... the seasons looked to have shifted by 6 weeks later in the year ! Very warm ocean currents still off NSW.

    Next VOR on IMOCAs?

    ...... need to include the Pacific Ocean, with a lap around Hawaii ..... that would supply more doldrum crossings as options to disrupt

    Scallywag 100 has been in the shed in "the orient" getting the shortcuts from Sid's ownership removed...... will be a boat more like the design from Andy Dovell's desk rather than the cut and shut approach and 'canny value' exhibited from Sid !!... Wild Oats XI is sold !
  13. Fraser Island is the reference point ......Fraser Sails (back in the Day) Bob Fraser went on to develop 3d string sails then sold off to the Doyle Group. Those days were ' enlightening ' when 'maximising the IOR rule' ....... Not the only guilty Loft...
