    Barge much? (FP)

    Sanctions??? Wow, slightly massive overreaction perhaps. They fucked up, have admitted it and appear to be offering to pay for the damage. Seems like the right thing to do. Saying this was wilful and thus intentional seems like perhaps you have an axe to grind. Its racing, not every mistake means that they are attempting to kill the opposition. Geez, have a lie down for a while

    Brisbane to Gladstone 2019

    ? More info!
  3. What if it didn't seperate? If plywoodboy has heard a story which backs up a rumour that i have heard, does that make your theory stronger than both?
  4. Who bought the insurance write off for a song?

    2019 Inflatable PFD's

    My Spinlock 5d is at least 5 years old has the UML auto fire. It works as expected, and did so in my Survival at Sea course also. Although once it did arm unexpectedly when my sailing bag filled with water and I didn't know. Whilst it isn't supposed to fire unless under pressure, i forgave this false activation!

    Going crazy on an Island Packet 35

    By the number of through hull fittings on show, I would say yes!

    spinnaker wing on wing

    The sheet is the key point. It is illegal to run the sheet through the outrigger.

    Pittwater to Paradise 2019

    XS moments just sailed past. Winds dropping. Having problems transferring photos from camera to phone to post. And there is no point posting shitty phone pics. Anyone on first 4 boats want a pic, send me a pm. Insomnia may get here before dusk. Looking touch and go. Hats off to all these guys, they must be sick of short tacking up the beach in 5 knots of wind from the north.

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    Why would you expect to find a race progress report in this thread? Don't you know where the tracker is? Or should I call it AIS, i'm a bit confused like Mark Richards....

    Richards: "Something Went wrong with our AIS" Everyone else: " get it sorted out for next year" vs Richards: "AIS isn't mandatory" Everyone else: "WTF!"

    What ramifications? I dare say if the RC decide they need to take a stand, penalising a few boats who didn't feature in any placings shouldn't make their decision any harder

    I guess they are not the type wanting to be seen to win by protesting on a technicality. Perhaps they feel they have given WOXI the chance to respond by doing it this way. I reckon initial response "not a mandatory thing" may make it clear what their next move has to be!

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    What a great race amongst the maxis, and despite my strong wish to see BJ get up this year, congrats to the team on WOXI, once again proving they are a force to be reckoned with. Harburg will have to make do with the "race to the heads" win till next year....! The lead for the trophy changes so often its not funny, this has been an epic race for spectating.

    VR Sydney to Hobart

    Yes. Its amazing how much one little mistake can cost you. Sometimes its a good thing especially if its not your fault. Once you get over your anger at VR, you can tune out for the rest of the race!

    Interesting race. The real life leaders are powering through the hole in our race weather, so next forecast will be very interesting I reckon.
