Sydney Mooloolaba Yacht Race

10 March 2014 - 02:05 AM

Gotta love qld Notice to Mariners 060 of 2014.
Larger ships cannot be operated in Mooloolaba harbour.
A larger ship is defined as length more than 35m or beam of more than 15m or having under keel clearence of 0.5m.
So that takes out prety much everyone.

Trumpcard gets a new custodian

22 February 2014 - 11:07 AM

Trumpcard first graced the front page in late 2004 with a Hobart story.


Since then we have had the a few more front page appearances and any number of threads about the adventures.


We have had OA's Tasmanian cruising thread, another passage race front page in 2011 and countless thread references from the SAers like Greasy Al, JasAus, Yowie, Lonely Boy 15 (and his 400 socket pupets)  and of course OA, each been part of the Trumpster story.


Tonight Trumpster has new custodians and for the first time since I was about 12 I don't have a racing sailboat.


The great part is that the boat has gone one of the longstanding crew (our naviguesser) who has done every major race with us for the last 15 years including the lows of the 2002 Hobart crash, the 2004 Hobart campaign dismasting and the highs of the 2011 passage race prizes.


So it is his story to write now.
