    Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    Carrera (Marten 49) from my side of town. Add it to the TP, Rush and PC, then at least there are a few. There will will 5 TPs at the AYC at PCs home club if they wanted to play on home waters.

    Maybe they haven't noticed but someone needs to tell the guys on Primitive Cool there are a few other 50 footers have arrived on the bay since October. Perhaps it's time to come back home and help build the fleet http://www.rolexsydneyhobart.com/news/2018/day-4/first-24-hour-run-by-primitive-cool-firms-winning-belief/

    CD's new boat looked bloody pretty sweet in the breeze on Saturday afternoon. Must have been doing 20knots as it flew past us heading downwind in the last race.

    Didn't CD get out of big boats due to young kids? Maybe not him but someone else then?

    The AUS TP52 seems healthy with rumours of a few more coming. Will they restart the old Southern Cross TP52 circuit again?

    Only had it for 6 months. Surely a story as to why it would be for sale so soon.

    Was driving up Beach Rd two night ago to see a rather larger boat (looked a bit like the old 65 ft Brindabella) aground of Beaumaris beach. Anyone know how it managed to get itself there?

    Listening to some of the old SYC members at my club now, it would appear that Sandringham has been taken over by "non-sailing members" with many of the "sailors" heading for other clubs due to the unfriendly, super commercial feel of SYC now-a-days.

    Boat 1 for sale, boat 2 not sailing, and boat 3 deal falls through. Are there issues or should we just stay calm?

    Anyone know who is apparently looking at the 2012 TP Audi All-for One to join the growing band of boats here in Melb? Is this boat a sistership to Shogun?

    What happened to Quest and Rags? Or is it just the usual Sydney line of "I could not be farked racing in Melbourne"?

    Current owner spent loads of $ on the Corby but still commissioned an new RP52 IRC. That sums it up pretty well as to what he thought of it. Anyone know what's happening with the old Shogun and Calm now that the owners have new toys? Rumours are that RH cannot even get a sniff on the old Shogun. Getting rid of them looks like being a major issue unless they price them at give away prices, and even then, who wants to own a older generation TP when there are now three latest generation ones in Australia to race against.

    Yeah, fantastic news if it happens. And then he can race it in the virtually non-existent Div Zero. WooHoo, bet he can't wait for that!! Let's face it, Div 0 is dead. Begs the question what's happened to all the boats? Calm (only boat out racing regularly) Terrafirma (in Sydney, hardly sailed, why?) The Doll (hardly sails nowadays, why?) Goldfinger (hardly sails nowadays, why?) XLR8 (hardly sails nowadays, why?) Shogun (Sydney based, hardly sailed, why?) Cougar (sold, rumoured to be replaced, but will they get their crew back from Calm?) What are Phil Coombs and Chris Dare up too? They seemed to have disappeared off the earth.
