    George (RMYS) and a number of the crew (SYC) are still sailing.

    Pay to play - amateur racing

    Should the crew contribute to the sailing coach cost? Off topic I find it more disruptive when there is a mix of Pro (paid to sail) and Amateurs on board.

    Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    One design is the answer. If you still want to race a caravan, join the Sydney 38 class. Good class control that restricts the number of sails purchased, pro’s and insist on grade one or owner drivers. Plus the boats are cheap. You might even come up with the odd win in IRC when racing mixed...

    When picking up our 2nd for AMS for the Range Series this year, they also gave me 3rd for PHS, should I be concerned?

    Maybe a division(s) for OD, all Melbourne and Geelong keel boat clubs have Syd 38's except RMYS, not sure if all clubs have J24 & S80? Super 11 seems to be getting some traction, add them as well + IRC & AMS.

    New 32 footer

    We had a 920 and then a Bull 9000 after that, I agree, the 920 was hard to sail fast. On the other hand the Bull was easy to sail and a leg ahead in speed.

    Hi Don, We assumed that it was the hitch mark not the windward mark adrift. I tried to contact the sailing office at RBYC by phone after the race without success. I then sent an email to them when I got home (copy below). I followed up with a phone call today and Simon advised that the windward...

    Attempting to get reasonable class racing in the S38 fleet with quick 50+ footers on the start line will be difficult. 2 races on Range days for div 0 If this goes ahead we may give mixed fleet racing away and just concentrate on OD.

    TE, thanks for the congrats on the dock after the race, we had our non regatta 2S up and about 5 seconds after we saw 30 knots T, it exploded. I recon Rob on SR had a firm grip on the wheel when the breeze came up, he still had the big bag up and with TBG on the bow. Apparently they also...
