Just read this in the Sail World report of the Sydney to Southport race.
"This is the start of a two-year charter for Winning Jr, with a packed program of racing including the Rolex Sydney Hobart."
Hadn't heard this was a charter before.
If this is a charter does the Russian still own the Big...
John Curnow on Sail-World says this:
"I see Class 40 is going for a RTW race two-handed, and I reckon there will be no shortage whatsoever of entrants. The 2020 Sydney Hobart is slated to have it as a class, as well."
Any real basis for this?
I am creating a thread just for Randumb where he can rant and rave (or write considered musings) about any issues that are upsetting him (or indeed making him happy) without disrupting other good threads.
If you choose to participate on this thread you must accept that it is Randumb's sandpit.
We need a thread for the real 2018 Multihulls Australian Championship.
Was Wangi agreed at the meeting at the last Championships?
If so when? If not where and when?
Race for the real trophies with the history.
So all 7 boats are back together.
This leg seems to me to have a few opportunities for the navigators to play a serious role and for tactical decisions to have a greater bearing on the outcome.
I hope Vestas has a good leg and gets on the podium.
