  1. I'd say it's due to the water temp in melbourne over winter. A life ring would be very handy if you went in the piss in a 30 knot Sou'westerly on the Bay. Mex
  2. Good to hear. Anyone know what's planned for the boat? Apart from not busting it again... Mex
  3. I saw her in Newcastle on Saturday night / Sunday morning so she must have left after that... Mex
  4. She looked even more impressive offshore a few miles with the swell and about 25 knots constant. Quite a weapon. Mex
  5. We were off Sandy yesterday. Plenty of wind and driving rain but no hail. All boats behaved well and no significant damage reported in fleet. Got home to find water coming out of the light fittings. See this youtube clip to see what we missed out on That's one way to aerate your lawn. Mex
  6. Would be good to see it stay in Melbourne. Needs a bit of a spend to make it competitive again - Team TF do that well! Pussy Galore (also a Cookson 50 canter) was recently bought by an ex-Beneteau 47.7 owner. Now called Pretty Fly III. Fair to say they're had a steep learning curve since getting the new boat. I'd suggest the TF crew would have that same curve. Not to say they can't. I'm sure they will. It's just a massive step to go from a 47 foot plastic caravan to a 50 foot full carbon canter. Might want to steer clear of them the first few gybes in 20 knots +... C

  8. No change to the paint job and the rig is still in it. Mex
  9. Saw The Thing parked in the water at Noakes in Newcastle yesterday... Mex
  10. Fuck me, that's ridiculous. Someone's gunna get a hiding... Mex
  11. Calm and Cougar 2 both live at Sandy. why dont you tell the Sailing Office at SYC about your lucky find and see how much the $ reward is ?. All big boat sailors must be spoilt . Everyone should sail SB3s or Etchels shouldnt they ? Fuck off newbie
  12. I hear that in the depressed boat sales market Phil picked this up for a song, however, has had to re-finace seven properties to fill the fridge. Mex
  13. Is it just me or does it look like there a lot of boat forward of the mast? The bowman will need to be a fit bugger. Mex
  14. There's a lot of people hard of hearing around here. Living Doll will be competing in the Blue Water Point Score out of CYCA in Sydney this summer. This may make it difficult for her to be competitive in the Range Series in Melbourne... Mex Mexican thought you may like to know sail number R55 passed through Port Phillip Heads at approx 1820 today heading for Melbourne so the Range Series may be a goer . Cheers Nothing like an eye witness to prove me wrong. Sounds like Dolly has had a change of heart and is back in Melbourne to wreak destruction on the Div 0 Club Marine f
  15. Cam needs a haircut. He's looking more and more like Basil Brush every day...

Mex Current Div 0 entry list for 09/10 Club Marine (ex Range) Series: http://www.topyachtsoftware.com/db/aus/ser...=52&Divsn=0 An entry list is a bit different to a finishers list... Just thought it could be construed as an indication of conscious intent. Otherwise, why bother? I can't disagree with you there. As to your qu

  19. Pfft! I think someone maybe having a lend of you. Mex

    Joke

    Nice Dad joke, Mr Unit.
  22. Nice work by the boys and girls on Scarlett Runner. An excellent Div 1 win against a very hot Div 1 fleet in their first offshore/coastal outing. ABRW and HIRW await... Mex
  23. That explains the result then - massive rockstar quotient. Like Charlie's Angels on water, except they're blokes and not as good looking, and a bit older, and it wasn't TV, and it is never as cold on that show. You said it not me. I was more noting that he was no longer sailing on Limit. He'll be sailing with another SYC boat at Hamo this year too... Mex
  24. Most boats heading out this weekend or maybe a bit later. SR will be leaving later in the week. Who are you sailing with this year, TElf? On a caravan or a new, out of the wrapper weapon? Mex
  25. Any thoughts on when the Melbourne boats are heading to Sydney for the Southport race? Looking forward to having a gander whilst they're parked at the CYCA... Mex
