whilst huddling around the campfire trying to keep warm at the
, talking with fellow Mosquito Catamaran sailors, thoughts turned to warmer locations in the Southern Winter
A long term plan was hatched
as we talked about taking Mosquito's back to their birthplace Darwin!
Instead of 14 to 20 sailors standing round a campfire, we could be sunning ourselves in Darwin
Purely on a individual basis I have made some preliminary enquiries
Following from the M.A.N.T.A. (Multihull Association of Northern Territory) website.
Dates for the Darwin Multihull Regatta in 2012 are Saturday 30 June to Sat 7 July. The event will again be run by MANTA and hosted by the Darwin Sailing Club in and around Fannie Bay and the Darwin Harbour. Make a note in your diaries now!
I have also sent MANTA a initial enquiry email, just to get a feel for their reaction, again only as a individual.
So what do you all think?
Who's willing to make a commitment to say they want to go? I know it is too far away to be 100% sure yet, but if we don't start planning it won't happen
