  1. Race to Port Campbell eh? Fun place to moor up after an ocean race, not! Good to hear all rescued and OK. ORCV safety training works! Boat was a Beneteau 50' Agree that ORCV safety training works and well done to all those dedicated people who run it. Perhaps an additional training course should be on extreme conditions boat handling to prevent ever needing what is contained in the SSSC course. And maybe a change to the NOR in the upcomming Apollo Bay race as reads at present. The race is open to monohull yachts of a thoroughly seaworthy nature, which are enter
  2. Well done to the crew of TryBooking. Now there is a brand that will always stick in my mind.
  3. Race to Port Campbell eh? Fun place to moor up after an ocean race, not! Good to hear all rescued and OK. ORCV safety training works! Boat was a Beneteau 50' Glad to hear everyone is OK. Very easy to lose a boat so I hope the owner doesn't feel bad, can happen to the best of us and the conditions were extreme on the shipwreck coast. Love to know who picked them up, those people deserve a medal.
  4. Seems they are dropping like twigs in the Port Fairy race.
  5. Hearing that both are CM insured. Immersed sailors apparently all OK. Bear was seen at Sandy Bar with his wing in a sling the next day. Almost totalled is a bit strong. CCs blue boat has gone off to get her deck stuck back on and the top spreaders reattached, nary a scratch on Sporty. Stories around it was all caused by erratic helming of a third boat involved? Didn't see it but like most out there on the day, heard the big bang and saw the aftermath. Could have been a lot worse. Shit happens. Care to chime in Stumpy? CM Range Prang Update: Several weeks and two protest hearings after t
  6. Well here we are folks, half a week down the track from the Association Cup (Congrats to RYCV for retaining it) with zero press coverage (so it obviously doesn't matter a tinkers cuss to them), zero photo coverage (and we have some of the most active yacht snappers on the globe in Melbourne), not even the annual shitfight about it on this thread. I think we can safely declare the patient dead or at the very least critically wounded and in urgent need of resuscitation. What can be done to revive interest in this once pinnacle event? How about this - no yacht that sailed in the previous y
  7. Matching RP 52's against S 80's in the same division, never thought of that. Put a fork in it.
  8. Seems that AMS a wee bit more popular down Geelong way. So five Teams AMS and four IRC (yet the Green Trophy goes to best performing boat in IRC) Does that say somthing?
  9. Dead. YV Keelboat Committee take a good hard look at yourselves. Can't even get it on the YV website.
  10. Agree IMHO it's not just the premium that sets the value, also the dispute resolution process. Beware of statements such as "If any of our services fail to meet your expectataions, we invite you to"
  11. And we wish your Mom had too... She couldn't as the best part of him ran down the old mans leg.
  12. I'm surprised that AM policy holders in most cases don't seem to be aware they are being handpassed to CM, at least those I spoke to didn't. Agree with your comments regards CM and assume you are not a fan of the Victorian office, niether am I for reasons I won't go into. Thoughts on RACV as it seems some locals use them? (house and contents + cars + yacht rolled into one deal)

Well Bear can still hold a beer but it would have to be pretty life t
  14. Thank God for the fender Nazi's.
  15. So a big prang in Club Marine Range Div 2 last weekend and no reports? One boat almost totalled and two crew in the water, one crew sailed to shore with suspected hypo. Hope neither are insured with the regatta sponsor for their sakes.
