  1. Convert to a chemical porta pottie. No skin fittings, holding tank, valve issues. Light.
  2. What a great day for a sail. A waterline race favouring the big fast light boats but no matter. The rain held off and the breeze was moderate and the water was mostly flat. We had a good day on the Ross boat. Beat boats we didn't expect to which is always good.
  3. Not many little boats this year.
  4. From the RAYC website. R4 Percy Jones scheduled to proceed Interesting, what does RAYC know that we don't? Or being hopeful? POSTPONED Saturday 25 September A decision on rescheduling this race will be advised soon Race 1 – Spring Regatta (Richmond Yacht Club) / Approx. 50nm NEW DATE Friday 11 February In conjunction with the Night Race to Kawau Race 2 – Roy McDell Memorial (Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron) NEW DATE Saturday 2 April In conjunction with the Haystack Race Race 3 – Bean Rock Race (Royal Akarana Yacht Club) Saturday 4 December GOING AHEAD! Race 4
  5. But not too close on the motorway side as you get too much road grime. ie L-O Pier aim for about #20 P-T aim for 10. On both sides I wouldn't be 1-6 as it is nice to have a little bit of runway if it goes wrong so you aren't on the rocks and it gives you a lot more privacy
  6. I see it is on TM. We can have a look after December 15.....
  7. yeah - naah Another one down
  8. Manly Sailing Club was adverising several old boats recently. They sound perfect for you.
  9. Yep, getting older. Grey hairs appearing. Yes Supergroove. We had a good race but were smoked by the Aces High and Blue Dude. Interestingly none of these boats are in NZ now. In this case, fortunately he held onto the mainsheet, so with the extra sheet we rounded up and dragged him in.
  10. Shall we show our age and discuss the race record year in the Easterly in 1996? Just realised 25 years ago today Did it 4 up on my trailer sailer. Had a guy slip through the leeward lifelines when a wave knocked us down off Sail Rock. Had an excellent wipe out in the gybe on the way in from the Brett, Finished just after midnight. But then we were all so wet and cold we had the overboard person in the one sleeping bag and the other 3 huddled under a wet kite in full kit. Too tired and not enough rum to stay up all night. Had the last laugh when we loaded up and drove home while
  11. 2 down and still 1st =. No gear broken either.
  12. Still recall being on High Society D37 with Baldy and his equally impressive wife. They did move to the 42.
  13. But Matt will be fine on Krakatoa. He could do the double!
  14. If it is bubble racing please make it Saturday not Friday. I need the kids to sail and they have missed too much school this year already. Imagine - Tickled Pink Hilder Family, Playbuoy Pilkington family, Herbert family on whatever, Woolridge family on a Piedy, Nick Brewer might even get somewhere on his Young, Neeleys on Vagan, Stantons on Sister. And don't forget Dennis and Emily borrowing Fat Freddy. It could be awesome.
  15. Quite a bit of diffeerence between the "small" 52 Dr Who and JJF, and the bigger 55 Starlight and Emotional Rescue. I had a severe lust after Stormrider 780 when it was on the market last year. Couldn't face the divorce lawyer bills.
