Well considering 46 footers where beating 50 footers a few years back... Anything is possible if the conditions are right/wrong.My forecast, nothing under 50 feet will beat Maverick. B)
which Maverick?My forecast, nothing under 50 feet will beat Maverick. B)
the FOILING onewhich Maverick?
There are 2 entered
One thing for certain is that Maverick will beat Maverick..
Theres a foiling one now? Man the Maverick with DSS is gonna be pissed they've been upstaged :lol:the FOILING one
SYD 39CR also failed.Older fast boats and some very new wide boat which are having trouble natching earlier numbers
not sure it is not just Australia as a pogo 1250 failed when measured here
ORCI can also change their allowances for values to whatever they think it should be.Which recent changes are you referring to?
:lol: Pulpit, do you work in political media? That's terrific spin right there! Well done. :lol:Phil and crew have shown the cyc that rescuing a crew from a multi is easier than a mono.
He did and we are fine.... not sure he ever will again.....Did DTM going sailing with Pil
You all good guys?
Very glad all are OK.First of all, I’m very glad Phil and crew are all safe. I hope the Boat can be recovered and be sailing again soon.
If we look on the bright side of this years Hobart, Phil and crew have shown the cyc that rescuing a crew from a multi is easier than a mono.
So Pass, first safety test complete for the multihull’s
So what safety test is next before the CYC let multi’s do the Hobart ?
Glad it worked out well for you & the crew, what we were hearing over the radio didn't sound too promising there for while.He did and we are fine.... not sure he ever will again.....
Just hope these guys find my boat today
If the multi has turned turtle and everyone is ok, then a heli rescue will be much easier with a more steady wide platform and no rig than with a mono.BTW, I'm not sure it is inherent;y easier rescuing crew from a multi, especially if any are trapped under the boat tangled up in something (an unlikely scenario but it happened to Bart)
Very glad all are OK.
I think the naysayers at the CYCA would say that Pil has done a fine job of demonstrating why multis in S2H are a bad idea, sadly. The argument might go: "Yes it's easy to rescue crew from a multi, just as well cos it happens so much more often..." It would also be an easy shot to point out that no boats from the concurrent Flinders Islet race required rescue.

Dick,:lol: Pulpit, do you work in political media? That's terrific spin right there! Well done. :lol:
Wasn’t criticising. Just making the point that the multi-hater voices in the CYC will seize on any opportunity.Dick,
The chances of multi’s being able to sail the official Sydney to Hobart in the foreseeable future is non existence and it doesn’t matter what most people say to try to include them. The only way multi’s will race the official Hobart is if a major sponsor tells the CYC that they have to include them or all of the top players / power brokers buy a multihull to race for line honours. It’s just not going to happen.
As far as the multihull owners are concerned, until they have owners saying they want to race more do a Hobart and have number to support their claim for inclusion in the Hobart the CYC will not include them.
Rescuing crews from upturned multi’s ? Like all boats they have there issues and Bart’s death shows that even with the best support and rescue boats around that accidents can and do happen and people can be killed. RIP Bart.
Dick, I’m really glad that phil and his crew are all safe and I hope they can salvage the boat and it can sail again under Phil’s ownership. All I was doing was poking fun at the CYC
If you read what Recidivist posted you can see I was just having a little fun at the CYC’s expense and not at phil or his crew.
