Ha ha,Oatly probably spends more on mods and sails each year than what the boys paid for either of the big tris.It won't happen over night but it will happen.Of course they want to keep multis out, If you just spent many many many millions on a canting keel motorboat, you wouldnt want to be beaten - in fact handed your arse, by a boat costing much much much less.
using this word annoys me, as if multis were some kind of outlaws or renegades that are trying to re-socialize and managed to be "allowed" in.My basic point is that the S-H Race itself will be the looser in the end by keeping the multis out.
I cant see that you have any argument to that?
Almost all the worlds classic races allow multis - and it just been better sailing and more interesting to be a sailor, and to watch.
Heres a rock. Mate I couldn't give a crap, I just think that its disappointing that a guy like Langman who has been a CYCA member for a million years and who has supported the race with old and new fast and slow boats is told to piss off. As for the "tradition" of the half boat S2H, sure pal, its a been a tradition to have motorboats in sail boat races. Stupid stupid race the S2H - the leading boats now have to withdraw if their motor stops, that makes a shit load of sense.So....if the race is so bad, why do you want to enter. If you really want to do a syd to Hobart , get your club to put it on, with your association managing all the details.....oh that's right you don,t have any association.....would it be OMR....if you can all agree on what that is ?
Really all you want to do is stick it up the boats you don,t like.....why does it matter so much ?. could it be you want acceptance but can't get over the fact the Mono hull fleet don,t care.....really.
I will now stand back and let you throw rocks.........
Have a look at this interview pal, I think he is pretty cranky with the CYCALook at what Langman is doing.....doing it and doing well, putting his money where his mouth is and not having a go at other sail boats.
So there you go.....Scarecrow has made the most sensible comment so far, maybe the Hobart isn,t second grade ?.......and the multi,s do want to do the race.Well, I think its the Sydney-Hobart that will need multihulls soon - - if not it will be a second-grade arrangement.....multihulls can do without that race
they will surge on anyway.....
