  1. I thought there was a red one in Perth about 2 years ago too, there was some video posted on here I think. I just found this, from Geographe Bay race week, is this one of the east coast red ones now? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcuMAHW6qBQ
  2. Anyone got a link to the results?
  3. On your doorstep Chidz, get the moths out of your wallet!
  4. If he had integrity he would have taken the penalty turns,or retired. Time penalty is garbage, Fail to give way when on port,should be DSQ. no question.
  5. needs to buy channel 7 get control of the video, he'll win for sure then!
  6. Richo will put the crew on an hourly rate now, use the savings to tip the jury. fucking cheat, no question.
  7. I singlehand my Ostac Tramp(20ft) it runs a fairly full masthead assymetric,its rated area is 38.8 sqm, gets quite hard to hold in excess of 20kts, I use an 75 mm ronstan auto ratchet, then bring it diagonally across the cockpit to the windward cabin top winch(a small 1:1 harken), just take 1 turn to snub it,sort of double ratchet I guess. actually steer and sheet from back corner of the wing net on the windward float, I cant tell you where the winch handle is,i haven't got a spare hand to use it, winches used as actual winches are fairly useless when you are holding the tiller ,mainsheet in
  8. Anyone got any footage of the Pulse Fleet at the recent kings Cup in Phuket, im told they had their own division. Can anyone confirm what I have heard third hand,that the Thai boats have a modification, a post under the mast step to support the ring frame,? Whats going on there?
  9. Nobody say the "F" word or D L will turn up and F#%K the thread up.
  10. long pole helps the gybe, not having to drag the kite through, it blows through, watch an aussie 12 ft ,16ft, 18ft skiff.
  11. Evil Gnome completed the Heaven Can Wait 12 hour Yacht race yesterday/last night, lead from the first leg I think, won by a large margin , looked impressive,I'm sure he will be along soon to tell the story
  12. D Wayne G you are just an F85SR slut! Clive, Is Madhatter doing the HCW 12 hr too? Im in for the One Lap dash,Chidz is in with "Eat Desert First" too, Sprint 750 mk1. Looking good for tri racing, hope it blows! Hope yours stays together this year.
