    Speak to anyone from RYCV, they breed them there and have used them to hold the Association cup for most of the past decade. hahahahah seriously, on IRC they rate and perform well

    I think +3.5 wide means you will need an escort in some places as you go west.

    Cos when you get there all you do is turn around and head home....... A nowhere race other than a qualifier perhaps. People dont have the time for these races, same with overnighters.

    The Australian Gouge Australian Sailing Championships Festival of Sail Race Week. How much can they charge for this cluster fuck
  11. re the 40.7, not sure who says they rate well except they did on IMS years ago. On IRC, they are shite. If you have one, you need the new rudder to replace the original one that stalls and rolls you over. The best one around was dick fiddocks fruit machine that was at rmys a couple of years ago. Not sure where it is now. the New First 40's rate better but not in the price range. Great room and features for a 40 footer though.

    the christmas races are usually held in shut down periods so outside the delivery and qualification times, probably easier to get time off for. as someone said before, people dont have the time, and crew are hard to find. as soon as the race went from a day race to a day/night race, we lost half the crew due to other commitments. I agree its a shame there arent many overnighters any more, but times change. Ask golf clubs about shrinking membership

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    Could you buy a multi and take that or is the forecast no good ?
  14. wasnt the inglis 50 walk on the wild side which I think is in wa last I heard. I seem to recall g wiz had a habit of hitting the putty in the lincoln race which it looks like that pic is taken from. The ingliss boats were pretty popular for a while, didnt warro have 2, the second one he put an extension on. vendetta was alloy from memory built by the sitadani bros, and there was one more I think all around the same time
