Just checked with the penguins.

Snow on the beaches in Storm Bay.

Penguins are pissed as they were told that global warming meant they had to move south.

Now refusing to cooperate.

One of them did say that he had recently seen Lydia on the beach in Port Davey with a tape measure an old huon pine loggers punt and a canvas tarp and muttering something about the Rating Office.

I heard a rumour that the CYC might be considering whether to consider letting multihulls in. The concern is how will they fare in a collision with a sunfish

Obviously the Oats designers don't think a beamy boat like Comanche is the way to go otherwise they'd be building a new boat. They are looking for something new with the hull to suit the foils they have in mind imo. Lot to look forward to with these new designs like the Imoca boats. Oh and the forecast is for a South Wester at 18-23 Knots on the start and then light and variable by first morning slowly building to a Southerly buster by the 2nd night.

I thought the boats were capped at 100 feet? Is the talk they are going to go bigger? Also what happened to the 60' Ichi Bahn? Matt is sailing the TP52 nowadays.
