You are a sick man Garry laugh

Seriously, I am very impressed.........the shoulder and chest hurt even more thinking about it. I am hoping to be back on the water in time for the McCrae winter series.

See you in a couple of weeks.

Hi all,

not sure if all of you will think this is good news wink , but I survived the Traralgon Marathon held earlier today. Finished under 4 hours, was looking good at 30km mark passing it around 2hrs 30 mins smile . But the legs packed up after that cry. Luckily my arms are still working so I can still use the computer smile , but the legs are gone sick . Hope they are working by next weekend tired .

Looks like 11 Mossies entered now, with a few late ones should be a good fleet cool. Should out number other classes again, look forward to the look on the A and Taipan guy's faces again blush.

If anybody hasn't booked with me, for Saturday Nights Meal at the Morwell RSL, please contact me ASAP, as numbers are topping 45 and booking is for 50, look forward to seeing you all and doing a bit of handicapping Saturday night laugh .

Hi Gary,

Congratulations and well done finishing the marathon. cool I bet no other sailor could attest to running a marathon no matter what elapsed time. wink

If the conditions are normal for next weekend you won't need your legs. laugh You will just need someone to carry you to the water. grin And if your arms are still working then no-one else has a chance. smile

Good luck to all the Mozzie sailors for next weekend.

Regards,

Peter

The good news:

We have 13 entries so far and only one other class has made it to double digits.

The bad news:

We are in danger of being outnumbered by Optimists!

Great weekend - though a bit light at the end to say the least.

Pity the channel nine coverage was filmed on Monday (barely any wind at all).

Good results from Tim, Matt and Gary


A bit more wind would have been nice, but could have been dangerous too.

Thanks for Saturday night Gary!

It was a good reggatta this year despite the light wind! I'm not sure how anybody else found that top mark rounding in the final race... but it was chaos... and a lot of fun! We managed to consume a Laser... the young sailor had to punt himself off our kite pole before the forbeam swept him off his feet... all at VERY low speeds!

Liz took a pile of photos of that race, heres some photos of that start and rounding. You would have had more wind if it wasn't for the pesky Mozzys everywhere.

Hi Jeff,

great lot of photo's really catches the mood of the Sauna Sail, almost poetic when you watch them in slide show, just needs some classical music behind it. smile
