  1. If red bull were to enter in the Volvo do you reckon jimmy may get the skippering gig .
  2. Any of the aust multis heading north Hammo ,magnetic races need an experianced crew member for delivery home i am available. PM me
  3. If i was too die let it be at sea its my been life, job,pastime,sport unfortunatly the people i race with would have to deal with the crap and the key board wankers putting their cents worth in Met a guy once aged mid 70s discharged himself out of a nursing home in UK ,he bought a yacht based himself out of the Azzores. I asked why does he sail by himself his reply "didn't want to burden anyone" if my number is up If one day and the doctor tells me my number is up soon I'M GOING FOR A LONG SAIL would enjoy it rather than stuck in a nursing home sport is sport
  4. ORCV club from Melb is open to the idea of Multis competing in Melb-Hobart they just need the numbers
  5. I think RAGAMUFFIN 100 will get over the line 1st if whitty is still sailing ,he has learned/improving a lot since the start of the Volvo learning from the big boys now !!!!!! compared to the start also the mistakes they made sailing Rags's when launched and at Hammo. Where do think Richo would be if he was skippering a Volvo yacht ???
  6. Melbourne big boat aint any more ,there is more boats doing sunday and wed pursuit races getting boring
  7. Sailmakers always want to sell another sail ,we have a code Zero/reacher on 46 ft cat and yes it works in light winds with it sheeted in with barber hauler but after six knots the jib works fine. It comes down to how much you race in light winds ,against the compromise of sailing with another sail. Code Zero work sweet and if you can utilise it in light weather winds and also up as a reacher up to 15 knots go for it.
  8. Melbourne big boat a thing of the past ,super 11 the future ,mind you over 25kts no show
  9. How did the alchol fair no cracked bottles ? ,Did you have to shift the ballast or try lightning the load ? How about a selfie all sitting down below having a rumbo in that breeze Must be a record speed for a cruiser 22kt with all that ballast. Are you going up the inside of curtis island ?
  10. Its his money who cares not your problem ,how much does a Hobart or Hamilton island campaign cost or even the world tour . How much is a MC31 compared to an adams ,which boat will bring in more silverwwear/enjoyment ???? Rob packed a lot in with Scarlett Runner ,didnt hear you guys complain about his expenses with blown kites or bent wheels doing the hobart or the world tour, hate to think how much that cost !!!!! One day when i win the lotto the world tour is a definite on my bucket list Still dreaming and envious of Scarlett runners achievements
  11. Any one what happening with the Boss
  12. Was looking at marine traffic this morning see Comanche coming to Melbourne. Any idea where she is staying ,guess she is getting lifted onto a ship. Would like to pop down and have a look at her. There isn't a travel lift big enough to lift her in Melbourne is there ??? Any one know if rambler is coming too cant find her on marine traffic
  13. Totally different Can't see where the foils exit. A lemon or a weapon !!! Any guesses on the rig ?
  14. Hi guys from Melb/syd any one need a hand sailing back after Hobart ? Have plenty of spare time, lots of miles under my belt. Cheers Spiggie
