  1. This one would have to be a contender? https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/northshore-nsx36/199607

    Farr 1/2 Tonner

    Sistership to this one? https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/farr-1-2-tonner/227743
  3. Not much water for a P40.... http://www.rmys.com.au/start-linebay-soundings.html
  4. I have the Adams Yacht Design book, 3rd edition 1994. There is a simple lines drawing of Helsal, a sail plan, and some basic dimensions. The book makes mention of a (now defunct) website www.adamsyachtdesign.com , an email address adamsyachtdesign@bigpond.com.au, and a Sydney phone number 02 967222441 (which has too many digits, odd). The name of the guy who at that point had the plans was Tony Kavaliauskas.

    HI RACE WEEK 2018

  7. For primarily offshore and longer inshore races, thoughts on https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/nelson-marek-46/220127 vs https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/cookson-12/205576 vs https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/cookson-12/220538 ?

    Pic from the start, cockpit looks busy!
  9. Tim Lackey is doing something interesting with a 14' Handy Cat he has and an electric trolling motor - might be of interest. See http://www.lackeysailing.com under the "Project Logs" section.
  10. Article here which has a little information about the Inglis designs, also pictures of "Matrix" currently at RMYS when it went onto the beach at St Kilda in about 2005, damaging rig, keel etc necessitating a full rebuild. Might now have a Sydney 38 rig? http://www.orcv.org.au/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=745:2009m2abkaos&catid=20:apollo-bay&Itemid=512

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Seems to have lost a mast somewhere along the way? I guess that explains the "Misson mast" line in the specs...
  12. http://www.centralyachts.com/listings/sail/lyons65.html Somewhat better built than Excalibur was by the same builders, one would hope.
  13. Is that the same yacht which raced as "Wild One" in the 2000 Melbourne-Hobart and cracked the hull during the race? Apparently a 1m crack and a large amount of water in the hull. From memory might have dropped the rig off St Helens on the way back. Think it later entered a Melbourne-Osaka but failed the entry requirements and was put up for sale.
