    But an IRC endorsed certificate will see you right. Doesn’t the Blue Book rule 14.6 say “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Hobart podium except through me.” ? Or that may be the bible... I forget?

    What ever happened to supermaxi WildThing?

    Why not? He’s done a few miles in the boat...

    Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    There’s a 2010 TP52 called “Hollywood” and a 2004 TP52 called “Millenium.” Both in Thailand.

    One and the same.

    That’s a whole lot of boat to short course race in! I know it used to be common, but...

    Interestingly, Ray Roberts currently has listed for sale: 2x TP52’s, a Farr 55 and Checkmate. The only thing NOT for sale is the Botin 40?

    You’re kidding, right? Have you ever read any of the forum threads in this place? 99.9% of the posters here have some form of mental instability. Myself included.
  8. Be the change you want to... oh, fuck it. Never mind, I’ll do it.

    Former ericsson4/groupama70 VO70 now with foils

    It’s a wicked idea and I hope it works, but for my money a decent powered winch package would have been money better spent. Having to fill the handles for every sail change or gybe is the stuff of nightmares.

    They’re an easily driven, full carbon hull with a high sail area to displacement ratio, canting keel and can achieve speeds in the 30’s in standard trim. It’s an excellent donor hull.

    IIRC Exile was also carbon fibre, while Brindy is less exotic.

    She broke the start and was recalled 20 minutes later. She was flagged in Hong Kong as her owner had significant business interests there before the handover.

    To be fair, Exile was one of the boats that put R/P on the map. She was ridiculously quick, and had half the North Sails team on board. If you were looking for a “best Aussie boat of the 90’s” she’s well up there.

    How about a few acres of teak decking aft? For the ladies?
