  1. So which bits of the story are we missing? Hugos', comments....... hugo van kretschmar donated I do not know Mark Hipgrave but he clearly needs our help. Please support him generously. I have been across this issue since it first came to light and wrote to the CYCA in support of the double handed sailors regarding the unfairness of their decision to prevent them from competing for Sydney Hobart Race overall honours and the disingenous arguments put by the "lobby group" by which their decision was influenced. There is much more to this story that Mark h
  2. This is a job for Mr Google himself. I say..... “FREE THE SPARROW”
  3. Faaaaaark. How do we find the said video. Research purposes only, of course.
  4. Well said "Receiveafisting" , which leads us to the question - why are you even in this thread?
  5. I think we have to more specific with the goal posts. These days most cruisers aren’t sailors. Motor sailors at best. The best choice for the majority would be Furlers. Does anyone else see the irony in paying top dollar for the latest and greatest hi tech shape holding cloth , cut perfectly and then rolling it up a bit.
  6. Sounds like you have neither the skills or the physical capability to handle hanks. Best you stick with your unfurler.
  7. FIFY. Ask that therapist of yours. PS Has this bit sunk in yet?...... This abuse of members , in such highly misleading , highly damaging circumstances & audience & intentionally to cause distress & conflict & divisions , as well as forbeing seriously defamatory & demeaning of manyever good members & volunteers , must be dealt with & ceased , once & forever.
  8. Now it has been recommended that under 50's do not receive AZ vaccine, by Aus health, unless one has underlying conditions. They state the risk v benifits for this age group doesn't stack up. The risk of AZ blood clots has been calculated to be extremely low. Is this an admission that Covid ain't really an issue for this age group.? Traffic accidents possibly more deadly.? WTF is going on? Just ask'n, not say'n.
  9. $64000. Nice return on an initial investment of $50- .....oh and access to a scrap yard. Apparently.
  10. Tasmania, Lauderdale, 10 Paper tigers and 4 F18 ( 1crewed by arseclowns)
  11. JFC , are you tak’n the piss, coz it’s been there since about 1857. Had Some pleasant meals there with the family. ps I take it you don’t sail through Eden very often. They have really started tiding the joint up.
  12. Yer, the Great Southern on the opposite side of the road.
  13. Sad. Many happy memories from the fisherman's club, and Hot showers . The showers that were eventually installed down at the docks were always fun to use in winter, when the coin operated water flow would stop and you would have to wait a while for the timer to reset. Brrrrrrr
  14. You hit his rudder stock, retire, as overtaking boat keeps clear. Ron Given designed the Paper Tiger. WTF is a F18 even tangling with a slow old PT. Show some respect.
