I just can't cope with the idea of sailing with out the spinnaker again, just too boring tired. After the Mosquito with out Spinnaker States sleep , I don't want to not enjoy my sailing sick that much ever again.

Hey Matt, surely you and maybe your brother will be up for it, was great at Easter grin . I have been spending some time fixing up "Thrice Bitten" while I am recovering from the Op. Hope to have a test sail next Saturday in the local winter series race, as long as wind is not strong. Intend to test out my changes and myself crazy . Recovery is going OK, have progressed from walking to jogging this week, improvements are quite big in a week, hope it keeps going the same way smile and all will be OK for Sauna Sail wink .

Does anyone know what the long-range forecast is? Or is it too early?
I'm crossing everything I've got for wind!
Already starting to get excited - after only sailing once since the states.

Come on mozzies. We need two more for a division!

Hey Tim, the forecast has become redundant!

I'm sailing cat rigged without a kite so apparently I'm going to be bored *hitless and not enjoy myself at all.

I don't know about the rest of you non-kite sailors but I'm really looking forward to a weekend of being bored and not enjoying myself. It will be a nice break from the constant fun and exitement of work and raising a young family.

This thread has been an epiphany for me... all that time I thought I was having fun, but I wasn't. Who'd have thought?

That's a good example of when you shouldn't post!

When Gary mentioned the "abuse" a few posts back, I'm afraid it brought up a lot of bad stuff for me and I quickly responded with some comments that led this thread down completely the wrong track. It would have been better if I'd just kept quiet.

Sorry about that everyone.

I too am very much looking forward to sailing cat rigged without spinnaker at the Sauna Sail this year!

spin or no spin, jib or no jib, i find its hard to choose which config to sail, not everyone has a kite and yes they are fun, but the wild and very tight competition in the cat rigs keeps it fun also. im just undecided and being torn apart with enjoyment in all config on a mossie

That was just my feelings, I didn't expect it to be anybody elses. I guess I am just old and jaded, I think it would be fair to say I have probably spent more time racing off the beach than most Mossies sailors (raced pretty much every season since I was 8yo so thats 43 years). I have changed classes many times to keep myself interested in sailing, if not for the spinnaker I would probably have gone to find another class by now. But that is just how it works for me, not a reflexion on the class, performance of boat or the people in it.

I won't be sailing at all with or without spinnaker. So I guess I will just watch you all have fun instead.

Since there is about 40 knots blowing today and yesterday it has a long way to fall. Must be nearly snowing there since there is hail here. Will have to watch out for icebergs.

Yeah, I have to agree with Beckit - I reckon it is going to be blowing! grin

Sorry Simon - The red and cheese might need to stay on the beach, but make sure Gary cant get at it! shocked

Tim - You had better start uncrossing stuff or there might be too much wind, but can you do something about the temperature and rain frown

See you all there

"Sorry Simon - The red and cheese might need to stay on the beach, but make sure Gary cant get at it!"

If I leave it where I'm camping I reckon it'll be pretty safe laugh

Hope you're right with the wind though the model looks a bit grim. Still, you never know, maybe the BOM will get it wrong for once!

Cheers
