I hope to enter, but will leave it until I am sure I have recovered from the Hernia Op. Op wasn't as simple as anticipated, recovery could take longer than I hoped.

Can't wait for Sauna sail. I am back from sea on the 18th, and plan to sail at Sugarloaf a few times before hand. Just me and the wife coming down, so is there anything we should bring. I am told that all the women make a roast or something on the saturday night, and I am trying to convince my wife it is tradition for her to wear a french maid outfit but no joy.

Is there anything we should bring?

7 out of 25 entries so far are Mosquitoes.

So when there are 100 entries there will be 28 Mosquitoes. That sounds about right smile

A bit worried about 100 boats on a patch of water the size of a football field. Should I instal bumper pads or something? Keen to show off my new boat but.

It's a pretty big football field! But I can understand your trepidation. I probably won't be using the spinnaker again this year just because it makes it hard to see what's coming.

If you're sailing cat rigged you've got pretty good visibility, and it's just a matter of keeping a very good lookout at all times. If you're a sloop then it's the crews job (fault)!!!

The mark roundings can get a bit intense but you get used to staying out of the 'raft'. It always pays to go around the outside when there are 20+ boats all trying to get around the same mark. It's just more/different tactics smile

It's usually a very good weekend of sailing and socialising, at a time when not much else is happening. Also we've had a few drifters lately so there should be wind this time.....

Hi all,

so who is going to use their spinnakers confused. Surely you're not going to leave me to have all the fun grin. The look on the faces of the other fast cats cry is priceless, when a Mossie beats them over the line mad . Besides I need somebody else to shoulder some of the load as well, can't take all the abuse on my own crazy.

I know that we shouldn't let the ignorance of a few dictate to us, but not having the benefit of a skin as thick as rhino-hide the "abuse" really has taken a lot of the fun out of this sport for me. To the point where I will do whatever I can to avoid sailing in the same races as these people.

So, sorry Gary, much as I would like to be sailing with the spinnaker (the only way a Mosquito should be rigged) I will stick with the Mosquito division at the Sauna Sail this year (I must remember to take a book to read on the downwind legs).

Hey Tim,

"Illegitimi non carborundum"

And anyway.. far too many ropes to bother about really. confused Rather than a book, what about a bottle of red and a nice cheese platter for the downwind legs smile

Cheers

Tim - What about a division of Mozzies with Kites? Surely then everybody can breath a little easier around the boatpark and furthermore the 'abusive' sailors can go back to the more standard equipment of sailing gloves rather than boxing gloves laugh

Ok, the Mozzies may have had the biggest class at the Sauna sail in recent years but getting enough of each type for two divisions is probably just a bit more than we can manage right now (would be nice though) !!!

How about a book AND the red and the cheese platter.... oh, and I have to rememeber to look where I'm going as well.

Hey Mitch, I forgot there will be a Mozzie with kite division at the McCrae Cat Champs in Nov as it will be the state titles for the spinnakers. So it will happen after all - but it's not likely at the Sauna Sail.

We get 9 Mossies with Spin for States cool , you need 10 for a division at Sauna Sail crazy , Mossies get good numbers at regattas grin , but 2 Divs at Sauna Sail would be a complete take over sick .

What is needed is a Spinnaker Cat division, like we had for a couple of years, worked much better. It's mainly the non spinnaker "Fast" cats that do all the whinging cry . After all Mitch, when the other Spinnaker Cats get beaten over the line by Mossies with spinnaker eek , they know that changing the Mossie with Spinnaker Yardstick isn't going to help wink .
