Lock Crowther Multihull Regatta

Recommended Posts

This seems to be a reasonable place to ask this question:  We (at RMYC)  are in the planning stages of LCMR 2018.

Initially, we were gonna can the ocean race and just run the usual onshore races for race div and cruising div (sans extra sails) 

 

However, there was an outcry from the hundreds of active Australian offshore Multihull sailiors (yeah, right!) but we thought we’d atleast see if there was a desire by enough to make it viable. 

We need decent numbers (atleast 5, we already have atleast 3) to commit for us to run the ocean race. (Cat. 4) 

So, if we put it on who would like to and will be able to participate? (Yes, there’ll be OMR- but remember it’s a friendly regatta so we won’t be weighing boats but I’m happy to measure sails etc  if you have a fairly recent certified weight and inventory form etc) 

Also if you got any strong suggestions that would make it even more attractive to you- apart from mermaids and nymphs, of course, then speak up here or contact me via RMYC??

Cheers,
Stephen Barton.

Good one Pil. I hope you can make it.  What’s the boat that you bought and you’re sailing back from NZ via LHI? 

(A couple of little errors in my original post; Obviously “onshore” races was meant to read “inshore” races. And I’m Not sure why there’s question marks at the end. New proof reader required). 

Anyway, point is we need a few more boats to commit to the offshore race on the October long weekend Friday if we are to run it.

Cool Mr Chidz. Plenty of questions there: misfortune, sold boat, surgery. Cripes! 

Well, if any of that comes to pass you can always sail with me if you need a lie down on a slow moving comfy couch or I might even pull my Oui Oui! out of mothballs.

Def 4 boats so far for offshore race.

Sat/ Sun 4 inshore races. Should be fun. All sorts of boats. Hopefully, foiling TF 10 will show up and show it’s wares if he dares. (I had to. It rhymes)

When I look out the window at work I can see Panther and it was the boat I thought of when I first saw your post. Great to hear she'll be campaigned.

Also, hopefully I'll get my boat out for it's biannual or triannual LCMR.

Haha  "Blow Me Two" "Blow Me Again".....Everything I've ever raced in any sport I've had 66 race number so maybe just "66" 

No.. Not sure at this point but definitely not Panther

Suggestions...?

BTW .. Rohan... If I did Wangi would you be keen to crew...?

Root 66... I didn't realise that panther was ex Cyno that had a stint (and a lot of work done, plus a capsize) in Tassie? Quick boat:)

Yeah, I'd be keen - I'll pencil it in the calendar.

If you call it 66, make sure it doesn’t end up being 99 !!
