There's no better feeling beating a T7 to the top mark, even if it is the cruising version.

 

Then we tried to sail between the mark and Vivace, which had hooked the mark and was trying to remove itself! Bugger!

And nothing worse than being on the cruising T7 on the layline, than watching the layline dissapear below us out of sight letting the boats to the left in in front!

 

Bloody wingged shitters! ;)

 

Was good racing even though it was a strong wind warning, some quick downwind rides!

Two more results including what is supposed to be the passage race. Peow peow shaw 650 just ahead of the egan 727 blokes world overall now.

 

Looks like some really good close racing although surprised to see elapsed times with a few boats faster or slower than expected in race 4.

Once the first discard kicks in results will be even tighter!

Any reports from ppl who r actually there would be greatly appreciated.

 

Looks like some awesome conditions that's for sure.

Breeze was pretty solid, maybe a bit less than yesterday but still up to around 20. Pretty classic Moreton Bay vertical chop making the upwind stuff chunky and A fair bit of two sail reaching which spread the fleet out a bit more than the windward leewards. As usual, the guys that sailed well got rewarded and corrected times are still pretty close.

 

Looks like Barney's spice rack is really worth .005 on SMS - he flew today after leaving it on the dock!

Going crabbing really does slow up the boat, just glad we didn't end up having to go back and pick anyone up :ph34r: racings good winds strong, wishing it would die down to about 10 to 15 though!

Lol, only problem with the loss of our teak spice rack, is there is no where to store the empty's. The "passage" race was great IMHO W/L's are good fair racing but really get boring after a while. The old girl is trucking up wind, feeling great! All she needs is some more stiffness in the hull. Two sail reaching was great, we seemed to hold our own, or went quicker than the Mmmmmmm's and the cruising shittas. Then the reach back from hope banks with the mighty fraccy bag was perfect for us, while the Mmmmmmm's and the cruising boats went to Cleveland yellow for some reason. Good days, let's hope the mighty E7 can maintain our results and get a good result.

Second set of removable spreaders that slide over the tapered part of the mast, masthead halyard, backstays like a skiff (they will have to be adjustable as you won't get the main up) and you will get an extra 1.5m hoist and then add an extra 1m to the luff on top of this as well as the poles set high anyway. All up 2.5m extra x 6 m girth so 15sq/m going from 51sq/m to 66 sq/m so a 30% increase.

 

Might be a bit much on your poor hull though, you may have to have some tie downs from the chain plates to the keel step

Wow, what a series. Last day of racing proved the clincher yet again, this time the Blokes World boys had enough to get the job done! The lighter winds proved better for us, able to pole back and run quite square downwind. It was a great series, the top eight boats all close on handicap at times, looks like the top rating boats BW, and peow evenly matched in the windy stuff, and Peow a bit undercooked in less than 12 knots. The Mmmmmm's surprised me in the lighter stuff, they suffered as well.

 

It's hard for those who fail every race to sail to their SMS rating, fleet numbers will drop if they fail to get something, perhaps a bit more emphasis on a phs type result. Overall it's working well, top effort from Darren Spence who did a hellova lot of organising to these two great events up and running.

 

Next event here on floodland is the Surf 2 City. Actually Sail Paradise is on at the Goldy as well. So much sailing. Hmmmmm back to work for me!

thanks. great report.....looks like the SMS part is getting better with each event. yer right about a handicap event run in conjunction with the main score. makes for more fun and in the end more blokes can tell a happy story. win win be better than whinge whinge

 

well done the BW

Congratulation to the ASBA for putting on a throughly well organised and professional regatta, congratulations also the guys at the pointy end of the fleet. The (50%) NQ T7 had a awesome time with some throughly blistering kite rides, but we couldn't get the boat traveling well uphill for most of the regatta. The Shaw 650 appears an absolute weapon in the heavy stuff but looked a bit stickier in the light on the last day. Now the challenge is to find a window to tow the boat back up north through the worst floods in living memory...

Hey Adventure land,

 

Have a talk to Scottmax, Dave and Dan they will be heading back through Brisvagus after the contender nats might be able to help drive the boat back if you need to return sooner.

thanks to all involved in a great regatta.

thankfully we only had to go to Gladstone so could get home in one piece, roads were much better than the trip down which was very nice.

For anyone going further north signs on the road indicated Rocky's roads would re-open in about 14 days so hope your not in too much of a hurry.

all light boats are faster flatter

 

the boat is at the ASBA width limit of 3.5 mtrs, it trails at 2.5 which is the road legal width which is also that of all the legacy sportsboats, so you are looking at (only!) .5 mtr wing PER side

 

8m x 3.5s sometimes known as ARs or arms racers, (includes the 7.27 stealths)

Some of the High speeds coming out after the nationals are impressive!

17 downhill on the melges and 19s and 20s on Vivace

 

Unfortunately for us On BW, we could only manage 16.8 top speed for the week and for the most part in the 15's downhill

A little disappointing in context of the above

Mmmmm's must of got a big gust, our top on the gps for the week was mid 15 in a good gust on the first day! Fairly deep but, didnt try taking the orange shute too shy!

 

First 3 days runs were great fun in the breeze, but what a change the last day was!

 

 

 

Thanks suellen for the pic!

Some of the High speeds coming out after the nationals are impressive!

17 downhill on the melges and 19s and 20s on Vivace

 

Unfortunately for us On BW, we could only manage 16.8 top speed for the week and for the most part in the 15's downhill

A little disappointing in context of the above

We got 18's on our boat, on the runs with the fraccy bag up.

 

Must be true, that's what the GPS said!!!!:lol:

Haha... fair call.

I reckon our big shute might be more area then yours, we would probably be quicker with it smaller

 

And Matty wouldnt complain either... he cant pull the big shute on either

 

hi rossy,

ask ben if u can borrow the blue kite,,

should get the numbers up

but be warned once set no man can

pull it on;)
