    To ensure quality of posts & bravado by crews the rescue boat only goes 1nm for 1 like so if your routing goes offshore you better have a quality Facebook game.

    Open the bidding Shaggy! No need for railmeat on the Pogo so you can charge extra to go in comfort! FWIW about 10yrs ago I looked at going on a charter 47.7 it was about 10k back then.

    Does the CYCA invite owners / boats? Invite the mini maxi’s the wally owners, get the Sydney 38 guys up to 10-15 entries. See if they can offer any help to the owners of boats wanting to get their boats through Cat1. I’m sure the CYCA have a few things planned for a big 75th

    Everyone is time poor. You have to get enough crew to prepare, race & deliver the boat both ways. 1750nm odd round trip from QLD. There are 6 Qld entries of which only 3 are local amateur teams. There are more international entries than boats from QLD!

    Entry cost has little to do with the cost of the race IIRC, not much they could do.

    Or an equivalent passage, 50% don’t need to have completed a cat 1 race.

    They could use Sydney Southport in July as qualifier.

    I doubt CM poisoning was a factor, you wouldn’t be motoring through the tropics with the hatch shut.

    Newcomers get plenty of scrutiny.

    If the CYCA did exclude them for an incident would they be any safer if they re run the qualifier (which doesn’t need to be a race) without incident & passed?
