    Brisbane to Gladstone 2019

    Not sure if you are talking about the live stream video on the QCYC website, it's still available to watch and the multi start is around the 1hr 50 min mark,
  2. Love these boats, one of my favourites was 'Hot Water' which was part of the sailing scene at Easter in Brisbane in the mid nineties

    1980s Lock Crowther catalogue

    Actually it was 1981 I think in what was the first and final Gladstone to Cairns multihull yacht race, BHP put up a fair bit of cash for prize money, Assassin was dismasted on the first night as the race started a few days after the completion of the B to G in a raging southerly, sometime over the next 24hrs 3 multis pitchpoled, they were Hired Hand, Pumpkin Eater and a twiggy named Sailmaker, Cliffhanger broke her rudder on the second night off Hayman Island, all of this happened without any loss of life but from memory Peter K off PE had a very close call being caught underwater in his harness, the 60 ft Shotover went on to win on line honours in record time, not a lot of info about this race around but a bit of digging and some info may pop up.

    Hey Hacket, that was a very educated thought out polite response, you're not a teacher are you? :-) Oh by the way, the name's Craig

    Older fast Aus multies

    Hey Y, sorry for butting in but know a little about the shotovers, the first I think was a crowther super shock wave at 60ft, shotover2 was built by Adrian and was his design after he sailed a mid twenty ft version, shot over 2 actually won Gladstone even after dropping its fwd mast at break sea as well, very fast boat on a reach, ultra mudbug was his last design and yes did drop her rig I think in the AMOC off Scarborough

    Shotover had line honors a few times. Here is a bit of history for you here Keith. The other 40ft Shotover 2 had line honors as well. Anyone know where it is. I happened to see a fantastic site when Shotover2 missed a rounding mark in the 88 Bris to Gladstone in Bramble Bay which almost put her last but once around the breeze had increased to 20kts and this was an awsome site watching her run through the field with two mains and a tiny shy kite at mindblowing speed and spray to be head of the fleet by the time they reached Moreton Island, I think John West and Bullfrog were in the fleet as well so just goes to show, one of my all time favorites
