Comanche Down Under

Cruising up the Brisbane River in Queensland Australia to our annual Riverfire spectacular -  who should be joining the 100ft (ex Speedboat) Black Jack on the hard?  In a cradle, mast out was big red - Comanche! 

Looks like they have arrived with plenty of time this year for preparations to take out the Sydney to Hobart Race.  Hopefully with a couple of the other 100 footers still racing beside them! :)

I just sugggested that as a cost measure. Bring it back to the sailors skill, not designers & yacht clubs & courts. TP's would give them a tight box rule so not OD. Sailor nationality 80% & at the end there'd be some good TP's left over that would filter down.

No it should be held in Etchells at RQ. The finest sailors on the planet race there each Saturday. I know this to be true because many have told me this themselves. The Kiwi's are fucked!

I told the missus filling the hole with a couple of stitches would be a lot easier than a cut & shut job on Prince Alfred :)
