    Seemed to go ok today. Nice looking weapon. I agree a SW swell might be difficult, but they appear to have fun downhill

    Older well known IOR Boats

    Probably wearing Line 7 PVC which would have kept most of that water out right ????

    Rudders and roundup

    Not if you include the old beach balls. They spun out with shit rudders downhill. When they replaced them with the farr 40 rudders, they became sailable.

    Why would you bring one of those to PPB with no freeboard and no competition

    Seems the protest results are still a raffle. Lay a mark, put a mark boat against it and then advise over the radio that was the mark, and then the PC deduce that the majority that did go to the right mark were no better or worse off than those who sailed to the wrong mark. Maybe next time I will just sail close enough to where the mark was...... Ffs it was a joke, just like much that fos pushes now. Like sending boats out to a remote course on the last day delaying them being able to get back home. Do they wonder why there are so many dnc on the Monday race ? So glad they take on the advice owners feed back to them......

    Why dont people realise that geelong is as unrealistic as the rest of the aussie 52 's in the real world except that they cant even keep up with the real wealthy who replace their boats annually on the euro circuit and serve their off casts to aus Geelong gouge the local owners and crews and they do nothing but pander to the unrealistic nsw 1% of 'ocean racers' who couldnt give.a fuck about the rest of the world, and who then ruin the experience for everyone else. Go back to the real corinthian fun race events and stop bull shit wank pro race week formats which no one wants clearly judging by emtries and get a grip.
