Hi all,

wouldn't you know it, got a call from the Hospital today, they have a vacancy for operation this Thursday mad . Don't worry decided sailing was a bigger priority yet again crazy .

As I am booked in next Thursday anyway seemed crazy to miss sailing at Easter wink , don't want to miss the long distance race and the dash around the island cool .

Had a interesting sail to Loch Sport and back yesterday, hard to beat the Gippsland Lakes smirk . Where else can you spend a couple of hours on one tack shocked sailing from one club to another, in protected waters, with no tide to worry about smile and best of all get lunch layed on when you get there (thanks Pete) grin .


Regards Gary.

After the racing on Monday it's 'Return to Sender' for the winter series at Sugarloaf.

Hi all,

thanks to Matt,Daniel and the 2 Peters for coming grin . A enjoyable weekend with a mix of 17 Multihulls competing making for a interesting weekend and a just arrived now local Tornado hitting the water after the last race on Monday, should make things more interesting at the Paynesville in the future. shocked

Weather was as expected for this time of year frown , winds where mostly light making most races pretty long, but luckily the 30nm race finished with the last hour in about 20 knots to get the fast boats home cool (still about a 5 hour race).

As usual today would have been perfect and tomorrow forecast to be as well mad , surprising for this time of year, but it is blowing 15-20knots from the east today and more predicted for tomorrow, wouldn't it rot your socks all that good wind going to waste. cry

Boga report courtesy of Garry J smile

We had 66 boats competing all up, 6 Mozzies with their own class, good winds on Friday seen the Floyds ie Mick & Di show the rest a clean set of transoms, but things changed on saturday with very light winds greeting us, the light weight Stuart Ridge winning both races. Sunday the wind improved slightly with Stuart again winning both races, Gordon and Kate Hyde taking 2nd place in both races, Monday morning saw a trapezing strength wind, For the lighter crews anyway, and once again Stuart won out with Philip & Cameron Warren-Smith 2nd ( I think Cameron may have been the skipper). Michael Anthony had a few problems over the weekend, mainly with shackle pins coming undone and dropping his mast and loosing his main sheet block, we might have to shout him a shackle key.

The bear was only allowed to sail 1 day, and wouldnt you know it, the lightest day. There were a few "Wobbly Boots" around late Saturday night after the club put on a free Happy Hour before dinner.

The Mozzie ladies cooked up a fantastic meal once again on Sunday night which we all enjoyed.

Overall results, 1st Stuart Ridge, 2nd Gordon & Kate Hyde, 3rd Mick & Di Floyd.

A good time was had by all.


Thanks Garry


Simon
