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.

They were apparently installed yesterday, presumably by Parks Victoria.  I believe the intention is to keep jetski's away from the coastline.  Or perhaps 5+ knot shitboxes.  I also understand that SYC will be installing a new yellow crowding buoy to seaward of the 5kt mark.

WOFTAM.
