Funny how Oz multi hull sailing been going backwards ever since the Shotover - Fire Truck duels of the early 1980s.

You could add in D Flawless and Bagatelle  there as well.

As we have always known the bulk of the Oz multi fleet are just full of bullshit as they as sail around in their low tech cruiser shit boxes.

And you wonder why people treat you are a joke.


Sure someone can organise the Cronulla to Goodwood Race for Xmas time.


I don't understand why people don't get it.

There are good monos and shit monos

There are good multis and shit multis

Just like there are good sailors and bad sailors.

The post about corby refits proves my point well. These owners are simply updating with new developments whichhave become rating free. Yes is a good example. At stupid cost imho. Having said that I looked at similar upgrades as the platform was fine save for a hf which which was out of whack with the benevans. In the end it was all about having more fun and a boat with the development equal of the fast big boats.
