    Draft Racing Rules 2021-2024 are out

    mozzy How is that? 2021-2024 rules now say 'hull'
  2. basically yes, rigs are restricted by height
  3. shortest mark is Red, middle is Blue, farthest is White There is apx 70-100 yards` tween them , under a minutes sailing (thats doubled there & back), then multiplied x laps. Some courses, (chosen on wind direction) arrive at the triple marks only twice, the marks will NOT be close those days, also course 6 (W/L) can have 2, 3 or 4 laps so gaps factored in again, this is apparent on multi-race days with short 2 lap races it's over for this season as championship racing begins

    1. Comanche are expected and obliged by the rules to ENFORCE them, e.g. protest 2. the gentlemanly option was for the infringing party to RETIRE after the incident. RRS Basic Principles. SPORTSMANSHIP AND THE RULES Competitors in the sport of sailing are governed by a body of rules that they are expected to follow and enforce. A fundamental principle of sportsmanship is that when competitors break a rule they will promptly take a penalty, which may be to retire.

  7. yeah Timmy, thats what I recall, pics of her in the press beached on the nsw nth coast as she leapfrogged north she was the fastest boat we had for quite a while http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/133922227?searchTerm=yacht%20Amazon%20beach&searchLimits=sortby=dateDesc http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/127223715?searchTerm=yacht%20Amazon%20beach&searchLimits=
  8. would you rather it sitting in a corn field like Sayonara or bastardised like Pyewacket ? or bumping down the side of the continent like Amazon ? Amazon went before her time, but she got a Viking funeral. no she was sold to liveaboard gypies and dragged up the coast hitting beaches long after that
  9. whats wrong with that ? would you rather it sitting in a corn field like Sayonara or bastardised like Pyewacket ? or bumping down the side of the continent like Amazon ? The Whitsunday maxis are sailing and being maintained thru earning. The current maxis are probably not up to it, would have to get rid of the canting shyte just for starters. Loyal seem unable to complete a passage for example

    Can we save Portsmouth handicap racing?

    The only yardstick updated regularly enough to work is the UKs (RYA) reason being there are many interclub handicap meets, and it has decent feedback and is regularly adjusted/finetuned. US & OZ are basically static.
