    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    jackolantern The reason that they push through and don’t do their turns is that they are not man enough to admit that they have done the wrong thing and do their turns as well as they tend to try and intimidate everyone at their home club so no one is game to challenge them because If they do they end up getting back at them another way anyway. Its great that “Quest” did put in a protest and I bet that anyone who gets called by them in any future races will think about doing their turns as they will know that “Quest” will take them to the room. Anyway, don’t feel sorry for envy scooters, they had their chance to clear themselves and Kama is a bitch. Pulpit

    Showtime capsize on return trip

    Now boys and girls, Before you get on the price bandwagon and have ago at the owner for being a cheapskate and not spending the dollars with Jason or MaConaghy’s stop and have a think about this. Jason is based in England and his work is charged out in English pounds and the Australian owner is paying in Australian dollars and it’s almost a 2 to 1 difference in the pound to the au dollar, $1 au dollar is currently buying 0.53 pounds. So Jason is the best first option if money is no option. I’ve worked with Andy Dovell and he is a very well respected naval architecture and was the one who designed the Keel package for the modifications I understand. He is Australian based and has worked on many high profile campaigns. He is probably around the same price of Jason for the design work. The difference is he is paid in Australian dollars not pounds. As far as McConaghy’s goes, they are a very busy company and their prices reflect this and even finding a slot to do the work is a problem for small jobs. So please don’t have ago at the owner for trying to improve his boat on a budget. We have many great Boat builders here is Australia with lots based to NSW who are equal to the standards of McConaghy’s and are a lot cheaper as they don’t have the overheads or 100 ft owners to deal with.

    nix0nix0, I’ve worked with Andy before and I can tell you it wouldn’t be a half assed job from his part and he is a well respected naval architect in the marine industry who has designed and worked on many high profile campaigns. Please don’t speculate or point the finger at this stage and let’s leave it to the insurance companies to sort out. After all you could end up doing more harm to the owner and crew in the long run as well. Pulpit

    Now Newbiesporty, No, I didn’t forget what site I was on you turkey, the course record is held by the fastest Boat to cover the course and it wasn’t stated power or sail. A Power Boat does hold the record for the fastest Sydney to Hobart course. You just assumed it was held by a Sailing boat. There for you just made an ass out of yourself. Don’t worry it happens around here from time to time. Pulpit

    Comanche sold again?

    Moonduster, Its not that they can’t be bothered coming down here to do the race. We just don’t offer enough insensitives for them to want to come here and race or because the Hobart is capped at 30m Overall length why bring a 30m + length race Boat down here if you can’t race it. With the AC in New Zealand coming up now is when both the New Zealand and Australian Clubs should work together to get bigger 30m + boats down here for a season or 2 I think. There are a lot of great races or regatta’s that could be included in a superyacht series that would beat what Europe has to offer if the clubs worked together. You could even get the TP52’s down here if you wanted too as well. So it’s not that they can’t be bothered. We just need to offer more insentives for the owners to want to come and race here and not just for 1 race like the Hobart. Pulpit

    Because some people have a ego so big they think the rules don’t apply to them and are not man enough to man up to admit they did the wrong thing. RQYS is a law unto them selfs with some members. Pulpit

    Hoppy, I can help you out with a Sydney 36 tin rig with swept back spreaders and rigging. I have a rig that I own from a 36 ready to go and the rigging is still in date. It’s the 7/8’s rig and I can arrange to get it to you if you need ? Just to help get you into a new boat mate. I may even be able to help you get a few second hand assy’s as well. Pulpit p.s are you around over the Christmas holidays ? If so let’s have a drink or 2 Pulpit

    Now hoppy, there is no problem with having a wheel on the 36 the bigger problem is having the enclosed transom. I sail on a 36 out of Brisbane and it’s a great boat. It was just uncomfortable having a hey diddle diddle off the back with the life lines at knee level if you know what I mean in a seaway. Pulpit

    I can’t believe they were adrift in the broadwater for 10 mins. Lol The channel is only a few hundred meters wide at best in some places and shallow as hell. pulpit
