We just had a reunion of our 1996 S/H crew from Di-Hard last week.  We had 8 of our crew of 10 together for Whidbey island Race Week, including our Australian "translator" in Oak Harbor, Washington for the series.  We were also invited to do the Sydney Harbor Series before S/H.  It was a magnificent experience that I was able to experience with my oldest son. I'm not sure that we truly know the awe of offshore racing in the USA. . . Boxing Day will never be the same.

So if Comanche is in Oz already it's safe to assume it will enter. Not as if it isn't capable of winning the Hobart even with Oats and BJ. If the weather leans to the Big Indian this time she will win. Will be interesting to see how Black Jack goes and if Wild Oats has any more tricks up her sleeves?

Comanche will go

BJ will improve in areas where Oats have... and Oats will improve by controlling MR (and some mods but not sure what mods).

Scally.... very outside chance if others break...

It's all been said before.... C will win if there is consistent breeze... not sure on the other two..

One thing I do know... I don't go regularly but now that I am, it will blow stink on the nose.... Either way If I make the line, it will be my last...

How much are we betting on the ‘be my last’ part?   :p
