  1. Saw Sud's van in the SYC car park - couldn't they find their way back to the Squaddy?
  2. Big Tony should be out soon due to Ms Gobbo's indiscretions; might even make the Hobart start this year. Has serious blue water cred. Navigated Aus to Greece a while back?
  3. FFS How long have you been sailing in Melbourne? 1- Zac's dad 2- Mick G will be a DNS. Mick doesn't like being seen hanging around dodgy characters - not good for his image.
  4. And so you should be Dick. Once again we see the uninspired organisation that is the CYCA maintaining consistency in the application of their long held Cranio-Rectal Proximity policy. What a bunch of extremely dumb self-interested cunts.
  5. Nah, that was kids in poverty. By 1990. That was a Non-Core promise...
  6. Bullshit, he built shit loads of much needed school gyms with public access being a key basis. How many homeless do you reckon they could accommodate?
  7. Aged Care in Victoria was one of many industries privatised by the much lauded and frequently outspoken Jeff Kennett ( actually pron. Cunt) . Turned out well, didn't it? Funny how so many of those who flocked to that new cash-torrent industry were significant LNP donors and supporters.
  8. Those cunts driving around in their flash Ferraris etc are doing so highly subsidized by the Government/ Taxpayer and on the back of underpaid and exploited workers, underfed, under-cleaned and under-managed aged inmates and I use that word deliberately. I have had twice in the past and currently have a relative 'existing' in ludicrously expensive private aged care situations ( 3 different providers) and its a fucking crime, an absolute national shame. As for the criminal extortion of insanely high commission fees on the post-death sale of the accommodation to the next sucker, that's th
  9. Hughie H is delivering Ichi Ban direct to Adelaide from Hobart and she will sit there until Ad - Lincoln and Lincoln Race Week. Ichi did not want to do the Passage Race, just the TP 52 Class Racing stuff in G-Town. (Not sure why because IB is not a true TP 52 anyway with her taller rig and deeper keel) Apparently the Regatta organisers wouldn't accept an entry on that basis so she is a non starter. Looking at the entry lists with a bit over a week to go to the regatta and official entries closing today, this regatta continues its downward spiral from once dizzy heights of participation.
  10. Oh dear, the Thommo knock-off T-980-Mod. It seems to have been for sale for quite a while now. With Fehs's Shaw 11m Akatea just shipped across to commence racing in NZ, Smoothie also on the market and with her price plummeting like a brides knickers and all the Melgi 32s now gone it looks like the mildly interesting Super 11 concept is pretty much dead in the water. Shame, it showed potential for some interesting racing.
  11. How embarrassment? Sydney-Hobart: Victorian makes a little White Noise By DD MCNICOLL The Australian 8:54PM DECEMBER 17, 2019 Victorian architect and town planner Daniel Edwards is not well known in Sydney yachting circles but he is something of a hero south of the Murray. Edwards was crowned the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria’s offshore champion in 2016, 2017 and 2018 in his very fast Beneteau First 35, White Noise. His success had him looking further afield — about 800km north. “I decided to build a new boat to compete in the 75th Sydney to Hobart race and for th
  12. More unsubstantiated Bullshit but then that's what this place is here for. IIRC the SYC Commodore published his best wishes to Sandy members, keelboats and dinghies, participating in the Lipton Cup in the club online newsletter on Friday. Looking at the entry list for the Lipton, looks like RYCV is flogging a dead horse with what once was a viable and competitive regatta. Not well supported by many from other clubs either and and if it weren't for the venerable S-80s and the even more venerable Bluebirds, there wouldn't be much of a regatta at all. They did succeed in dragging a few Etch
  13. Hasn't anyone told her? Modern day Musto is shit gear. Leaks like a politician.
  14. Seamanship is not the same as Semen Ship. Seamen aren't wankers and wankers aren't seamen.
  15. Buy a fucking ad. Why would I want to pay $180 to stand on a boat loaded with half pissed Post Christmas bogans on Boxing Day when I can watch Ricco live, up close and personal for 2 hours on Channel 7 for bugger all?
  16. Drums are rumbling...the natives are getting restless.
  17. Yep, prepare for the annual onslaught of blinkered Mumblespeak from the Oats campaign. Hilarious oversight that he declined to mention that the team that so professionally 'saved' the boat also royally fucked it in the first place. Chalk that up to an Oats psych-out by BlackJack. The Summer of 2019 scoreboard thus reads BJ -1, Oats - 0. And as the saying goes, Once you go Black...
  18. EVERYTHING gets filmed these days! Not so sure that Low Stress (DA) would have lived up to his name in that situation. Loads of blue water experience on the No Limit so it just shows that 'shit happens' without fear or favour. Hopefully damage was "limited" to a few bruised egos rather than to that fine vessel.
  19. At last a "big" boat coming to PPB ( or more properly, Corio Bay) with the new Eccy being ex Ubox and ex a few other names including Jazz which bloody nearly won a S2H a few years back.. Has had a successful record like pretty much all of the Cookie 50s - will be good to see her carving up the Big Boat scene here. Coming ex Honkers and pitching for the 75th Hobart. Nice buy Paul, with a bit of help from Nudge who is driving her home.
  20. When I think of the tragedy of 9/11 I still am amazed that so few actually died in that horrible atrocity; somewhere around 3000 souls. And yes, the death of 3000 souls in one event is appallingly tragic but then I reflect on the fact that just about the same number of Americans are killed in gun related deaths EVERY MONTH and that has been going on for decades with little or no moral outrage. America quite rightly did something about the causes of 9/11.
