Davidson 28 racing?
Posted 06 September 2019 - 03:02 PM
I have a D28 based out of Hobsonville. I have race crew experience on other boats, but pretty limited experience racing my own.
I know my boat isn't going to be setting any records, but I'd like your thoughts on what you'd get in to with a boat like this. There are plenty of big light boats that glide past me, is there an active fleet more on my level?
I'm due for a sail refresh so trying to figure out what my goals for the boat are. If it's just cruising I'll make some different choices than if there is good fun and experience building to be had.
Note I'm usually short handed or solo as well.
All advice appreciated, cheers!

I see a few D28's around but very rarely sailing. Keen to hear from any others out there.

There was a very mixed fleet racing out of CCYC at Hobsonville marina most Wednesday nights over summer.
Mark Foy starts and relaxed racing could be a good starting point?

@tuffyluffy - yes I did a couple of those, and will be getting back in to them. My negative handicap in the Mark Foy is an interesting twist!
I've put down a deposit on the first new sail and started unloading all the accumulated junk from the boat to lighten the load a bit. Bring on summer evening sailing!

Got our first Wed evening race for the summer in with CCYC, with a full crew even. So pleased to have daylight savings here!
See you all out there.
