If not, plenty of boats that don't move at RQYS we can fetch a few spares from!

Rumour has it that Dekadence had a wee accident and might be a write off, poor bastards. I could borrow theirs but I’m too superstitious.

Randumb has heaps of booms but they are only 18" long. Don't think even he has a dozen or so spare you could splice together though. 

Thank God for small mercies, I don’t know if I could drive the remote.

Anyone know if the race is actually going ahead?

Nothing about entries on the club website.

The CYCA have about 30 boats for Hobart already.

I don't see any promotion or advertising on sail - world or anything.

Anyone know what is happening as might be looking for ride north.

You'd need a boom off a 50' cat!

There is an entry list there but you have to click on "enter race" to find it.

Entries are well down but.

The Keppel race is now a stage race! Inspired by the Tour De France PHS is this year in 8 stages. Read more...

This year the event will be run differently to previous years – the race will consist of eight (8) stages where yachts are scored for each stage, based on their elapsed time between the designated gates. This change will only be applied to the PHS (Performance Indicative) results. This new initiative promises to give yachts more opportunity to perform well, with 8 chances, rather than 1, to be successful in this event.

I shit you not! This would have to be the most retarded thing I have seen from the club since speed was capped at 10 knots for the River race a few years back

YCMTSU.

Are you shore it’s not  Lota’s fishing clubs power boat’s trying to get more entries in to log racing ?

 

Afterall they want to go north for winter as well and a log race to hamo is a great way get away from the wife and then the weather will turn bad apparently for the trip home.

The power crushing group take their wives with them. I hear talk of the kill cords all put in a hat after their cheese and bickies on the beach each night...

Have to agree with Lydia (who doesn't answer SMS) that entries are well down  

Interesting to read that the HH42 "Not a Diamond" is a replacement, not in addition, to Bene 40 according to topyacht bio.
