Would be an easier delivery. Just put it back on a truck.Is Hoppy going to enter ?!?!
I guess they can take it on the Spirit of Tasmania.Would be an easier delivery. Just put it back on a truck.
Commendable effort to knock off Patriot on AMS by just 14 seconds! Andrew has done a lot of 2/H with his Dad and also did a 2/H Melb to Osaka so plenty of experience there. Hearing they might have a 2/H crack at the 50th West Coaster.https://www.sail-world.com/news/249111/Double-handed-Ryujin-wins-Apollo-Bay-Race
worth a mention, sailing double handed and getting the overall win, with a few good boats in the fleet.
The question should really be why do people keep putting boats on inadequate mooring tackle or mooring lines on inadequate cleats in Mornington these boats generally aren't sinking on the moorings they break free.Why do people keep mooring boats at Mornington? I feel like we see photos of a couple on the beach every spring.
It's a good point. We do a lot of commercial mooring work and even with that the users tend to seriously underestimate the loads in their boat and mooring in a storm.The question should really be why do people keep putting boats on inadequate mooring tackle or mooring lines on inadequate cleats in Mornington these boats generally aren't sinking on the moorings they break free.
Mrs Sportscar ?A 40 footer coming to SYC, a Melges 40 from New Zealand no less.
Now I wonder who the owner is, could it be an SYC Committee member?
Questions, questions, questions....
There are 4 in Akld. 2 have been listed for sale in the last 6 months. One of those suffered some damage in a start line incident in january, and hasn’t been seen since. The other 2 are still in their floating docks- so draw from that what you will.I wonder which Melges 40 was bought. Today a listing for clockwork showed up, but as it’s a new listing, not that one. IIRC 3 M40’s were imported into NZ either at the same time or at least in quick succession.
so the perfect line honours boat for PFBThey are incredibly fast for a 40ftr - can hurry up a tp52 at times but at the end of the day being 12ft shorter will be behind on line. So they sail against themselves behind the 52s and ahead of the 40s.
