That's the 20/21st November for anyone who hasn't read the website. Spinnaker States at Sugarloaf, Cat Regatta at McCrae and an OTB regatta at Geelong.

Matt... surely you will be going to Sugarloaf to sort Gary out! He might be slow with his verticle boards (well slower maybe) crazy ... never let a chance go by wink

I'll be doing the McCrae Cat regatta for obvious reasons. Those not flying a kite at Sugarloaf are most welcome as always.

Cheers

Hi all,

I was planning to do Vic Cat Champs (the real ones)and Spin States, but just recieved a letter from the hospital telling me, that they can operate on my double hernia sick late October, reckon that might slow me down more than my centreboards cry.


Regards Gary.

I presume all the spin boats will be enjoying Sugarloaf hospitality. smile

A reminder.. all Mozzies not going to the Spin States are welcome at the McCrae regatta... $50.00 for the weekend incl Dinner Sat and Brekky on Sunday.

Thus far it is me, Nick and Rob.... need more Mozzies!

Any long distance travellers doing the coaching weekend that want to do the 20th/21st are welcome to leave their boats at my place to save towing home and back again.

Cheers

I'll be there I haven't fallen off the face off the earth. I've got some sibling rivalry to put to rest...... and in the process discovered how good a well set-up boat sails regardless of class! Going to give the 'fat bomber' a run with the kite... too much fun to pass up...

Wind forecast is looking good! and sun as well smile

Good luck to all those with Kites at Sugarloaf.... very nice of you all to head over there and give those of us doing McCrae a chance at glory wink


It'd be good if someone could post some half time results on Sat night.

Cheers

Hi All,

A quick report from the other fleet.

65 boats in all. 4 Mozzies sailed in div 2 with 6 Hobie 16's and a Hobie 18. 5 races were completed in all, 3 Saturday and 3 today with one abandoned due to a 180 degree shift.

A typical McCrae weekend with a bit of everything wind wise. Some races shortened due to light winds, others going the distance with plenty of trapeze time and nice flat water.

Bob Wilson took the chocolates with an unblemished series. Rob Lott took second, Tom Cobden and Ella Morris collected 4th, and also Junior Skipper. I scored a "quality" 8th.

An enjoyable weekend had by all... It was nice to sail in some sunshine at last.

Cheers
