In Topic: So what news of Syd's new ride?

15 April 2014 - 05:13 AM



Any bets on him being in a "relationship" with VD? Seems his checkbook opened around the time she apeared on the scene. NTTAWWT, if she has helped him take on a new perspective and live large in his latter years good on her!

"Highly Unlikely"... :lol:

Make that VERY unlikely!

Even VERY, HIGHLY unlikely...

Get a life.

Go sailing or something.

...and then there was, well, one.


"At 9.10am this morning north of Newcastle Shaun Carroll's Morticia advised their retirement from the Sydney to Mooloolaba Yacht Race the crew believing they don't have enough food, water or patience to continue on."

All the Australian multis are training for the Hobart by doing the Sydney to Mooloolaba race tomorrow.

Staying off the harbour tomorrow as it will be just too crowded.


A heap of monohulls lining up for the race as well.


Oh, hang on a second...

Now down to two multihull entries, Two Tribes is out.

Still no monos.


All the multihulls are all saving their energy for the Hobart. Oh, hang on a second...

What happened to Dildo, lasted 1 hour into the Hobart Race and DNF in the Coffs ?

Conflicting stories. I heard the main blew up
again and they dropped the boom on one of the wheels


From their FB page.


"Our Coffs race result: crossed alternate finish line outside coffs harbour due to 45knot storm after one day and 12h - second after ragamuffin on linehonours. Currently still DNF by club pending decision due to use of alternate finish without prior notice. 

Thereafter, storm ripped our main and carbon jib forcing us to circle outside channel for another couple of hours. The storm has left its marks. Regardless of coffs harbour conditions and storm Dodo has done well and the team can be proud of the entire trip."

Hmmm .... must have been in a different Coffs Race.  We didn't see over 25, no storms.  As we arrived at around 4am Saturday the local police boat was towing Dildo in very very gingerly and we were specifically asked by the Water Police to give them plenty of space as they were on a long line...  Yellowbrick Tracker saw them take a strange detour out to sea at the finish...


FB also shows photo of very f*cked up port wheel...
