    Bump ... News?

    Fatality off Forster

    One of the owners died in a non-sailing accident not so long ago.

    Shit! WDS. More tragedy...

    PIL66-XL2 health check

    Very surprised they didn't find it the first day or so after the flip - but great news all the same. Bit 'o slime to buff off and she'll be right.

    Wasn’t criticising. Just making the point that the multi-hater voices in the CYC will seize on any opportunity.

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    Very glad all are OK. I think the naysayers at the CYCA would say that Pil has done a fine job of demonstrating why multis in S2H are a bad idea, sadly. The argument might go: "Yes it's easy to rescue crew from a multi, just as well cos it happens so much more often..." It would also be an easy shot to point out that no boats from the concurrent Flinders Islet race required rescue. BTW, I'm not sure it is inherent;y easier rescuing crew from a multi, especially if any are trapped under the boat tangled up in something (an unlikely scenario but it happened to Bart)
  7. Yacht materially prejudiced by the race committee... what would your local Australian sailing rep say?

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    I never did work out whether KiwiTech and Expedition were related. I recall trialling KT and when I fired up Expedition a few years later it seemed very familiar.

    I loved the retracting rudder blades - very cool. Overall a very cool boat but one you could only effectively operate if you owned a boatyard. Thankfully Sean does.

    2019 52 SUPER SERIES

    No collision, it simply folded while sailing upwind. Mast in several pieces, suggests a cap or diagonal let go.

    Farr 1/2 Tonner

    Looks like a Joubert boat, Brolga 33 or Corrawong 30 maybe

    Pretty sure there's a red D54 in Sydney harbour, or there was a year or two back. Paint was faded but it looked pretty solid otherwise

    It looks like a pretty standard IMOCA kick-up rudder arrangement IMHO
