Dave's old A31 coming to SYC which I'm sure will clean up most of IRC...

 

Did I hear that Jason Close has bought the A31? What's happening to the Beneteau 35 White Noise?

 

Mex

 

That's right mex.  White noise is for sale.

Picked up our take-home "trophy" on Sunday, probably the "cheapest" trophy we have ever received (and that includes the one I won skippering a Heron in 1968); rectangular wooden block base painted white with two bits of perspex glued into a routed channel on the top of the block. Niiiice!

So Stampede is now the "big" boat?

As for crew looking for rides....where are they?

 

 

Indeed, a very cheap trophy.   :(  At least you missed out on the 'cheap' catering with a bonus of unwashed gritty spinach.

On a separate issue.

 

Can we rename this thread? or should we start another and just let it die.

 

There is no Melbourne Big Boat Fleet.

 

I agree Don - how about Melbourne keelboat fleet

Range series round 5 coming up, only one race scheduled for Div 0/1 again. Forecast for 15-20kts.

It will be one race per day for the final three race days. Following consultation with the owners, the series for Div 0 has been reduced to a nine race series (from the original "up to fourteen") races.

 

There will be a new Presentation format this year. After the conclusion of the final race, the presentation will be held at RBYC. Boats and crew are encouraged to come off the course areas and berth at Brighton immediately after the final races are concluded.

Nice idea, except - i wouldn't have thought there'd be enough room at Frighton...

Should be enough room upstairs. I do hope that we have a space problem, that would mean that we had plenty of participants.

Dave, i was referring to room in the marina for the boats.
