  1. Arrangements are now well advanced to run the Crowther Regatta over the long weekend 1st to 3rd October 2021 - held over from last year due to COVID. So here's an invitation to all previous and future Crowther participants to join us in celebrating the 25th Anniversary of this event at RMYC. The link below has further details including NOR and Entry Form. Hope to see you there! Take advantage of the early bird entry fee which saves you money and greatly assists our planning. A Win-Win! https://www.royalmotor.com.au/boating-groups/sailing/lock-crowther-multihull-regatta
  2. Yeah, sorry Pil, we did do a ring around to say it's now open to all. Hopefully we'll get a few more "foreigners" to sign up before the weekend. No prizes, $20 entry only to cover setup costs, no on-land socialising, but, hey, we'll try and have fun anyway! Last look we had 19 entries with another 4 or 5 monos likely I'm told. Cheers, Alan. https://royalmotor.com.au/boating-groups/sailing/oct-pittwater-regatta
  3. Yes guys, unfortunately LCMR 2020 has now become another casualty of Covid-19. As mentioned above by Indian Chief, plans were reasonably well advanced to run it from RMYC under Covid restrictions meaning no up-close socialising, presentations etc. But we were confident we could make this work and still enjoy sailing time together. That is until just a few days ago, when AS significantly tightened restrictions to the extent that NO boats from outside the Pittwater region could be invited. Yes, that's right, no Gosford, no Cronulla, no Lake Macquarie and even no Sydney Harbour! And of course for
  4. Entries now open. Regarded by many as Australia’s friendliest, best value, laid back, good fun regatta. 4-6 October, RMYC Pittwater. Notice of Race and Entry form here https://www.royalmotor.com.au/multihulls/Crowther.html Hope to see you there.
  5. Fixed My F-28R is one of the first F-28 imports to AUS, in about '98 by Ian (Ox) Davis. I think the boats were Scud, Pear Tree, Summit, mine was Special Kay owned by Greg Kay of Classic ( I love love love the Omohundro carbin mast) Peter Hey Pete, there was another one called Moreton Bay Bug (sailed by Ox I think) that we raced against at Wangi one year back in the late 90's. I think John Partridge's brother had one as well. Don't remember the name though and "My Toy" is still around in Gosford I believe. Definitely one of Ian's best designs ever IMHO.
  6. Coppercoat does have some advantages as noted above but it doesn't actually work particularly effectively as an antifoul per se. Still needs regular scrubbing if the boat is to live in the water. Over the years, I've used both ablative and "hard" antifouls and found the ablative stuff pretty well useless unless you don't mind seeing the stuff seriously discolour the water every time you are tempted to wave a sponge at it to remove some minor slime build up or similar. The hard scrubbable (non-epoxy) products from International (Ultra) or Norglass (Topflight) are reasonable. Call their technica
