I haven't sailed/raced there since I was a kid so it will be interesting to return there. The last time I was there we camped on the foreshore and the Lightweight Sharpie crews got intoxicated and did some nasty things to the rest of the fleet in the middle of the night. blush shocked

There was also a large contingent of Rainbows so you can only guess how long ago it was. grin

Hey Peter, we will have to compare notes, I used to camp on the foreshore back in the day, even had a Rainbow there for a while. Beleive me it is nothing like it was back then, you won't recognise the place.

Hey all,

look forward to welcoming you all, will be on Bar Duty Friday night for anybody that turns up early.

Forecast looks great, hope it gives at least one days sailing as good as last Sunday, one of the best ever.

Good to hear all the new boats coming, guess I will just have to battle on with my old girl wink 1760 must be 15yo or so by now.

I'm not complaining Gary, because it will be a good weekend of sailing, you locals keep telling me it's a great place to sail,.Your old girl is not even of legal age yet.
With you on bar duty Friday night, thats a good reason to get there early.

Hi Tim,

Hope you are over feeling green and are fit and well for the weekend. We would all hate to see you miss out or drop some races.

Regards,

Peter

Looks like I'm dropping a few last minute kilos as well.

Picked up the boat from the club tonight and the mast felt rather heavier than I remembered shocked. Thought I might be more out of condition than I suspected but on inspection, the plug was missing and I had about a metre of sand in it!! (*hit of a job getting it out cry )

There's probably a lesson in there somewhere about inspecting your boat after a swim!!

Gary, I'm sure you'll cope "just fine" with your ageing girl wink See you at the bar on Friday.

Cheers,

The perils of mast-up storage !!

I'm down two kilos so far - disappointing really since the last time I ate was Tuesday breakfast.

Hope you are over feeling green


Thanks Peter. Still green, but not so bad. Should be right by tomorrow - I am planning a monstrous breakfast!

But seriously hope you are feeling better Tim.

Hi Pete,

69/70 was before the Rainbow, that wasn't until 71. Yeah the late 60's was huge, dad would have had a Fireball then and my older brother and I where on Northbridge Juniors, being given a hard time by all the Sabots, they used to tell us that we had to withdraw from the race if our booms hit the water, as when they capsized they sunk, race over. I think we spent more time tipping them over than anything else, they where so much fun. grin

Don't worry about the rain, with the tempatures and wind forecast I doubt it. Besides we have had more rain than we have had for ages in the last 24hrs. So we should have got the wet stuff out of the way by the time you get here. wink

Morning all,

Rainbows bring back memories, fun and not saying what years but I digress.

All, I am looking for report from the Nationals for the next article please along with pics and friendly comments.

Also, will do the same for the Vic state titles if I can get the same information and pics please.

Please just email me whatever you have and I will get it written, proof read by usual people and published.

I will be overseas from next couple of weeks and then back for a bit before heading back to sea (work) and will do article while I am there.

Hope you all have a great weekend and competitive sailing.

Well they're all over (results in the last post). Light winds throughout with a little bit of trapezing in the first two races. Six races like that over three days - much harder on the brain muscle than the other muscles. I hope everyone has a safe drive home.

Congratulations to winners Neil & David Joiner and Shannon Wilson, and also to junior (last time) Mitch Meade and Clap-hanger winner Matt Stone.

Looking forward to seeing you all back here in 2013.

Tim, the Mossie State Committee and the GLYC thank you so much for a great weekend, it was very well run, enjoyable and as always a great social atmosphere.

Congrats to the winners and all the place getters, you deserved it given the light and changeable conditions.

Plenty for Em and the kids to do while I was on the water, which made the weekend even better.

A great place for a Mossie regatta !!!

Can't wait for the next one there.
