Hey Garry,

Looks like a few of us are going. Three Rye boats, a couple from Sugarloaf and I think Matt and Daniel are also going. I am sure there will be a few others......

Will we be seeing you??

All the best...

Yeah I am heading up Friday, via Irwin Sails and selling old set of rudders to a guy fixing up a Mossie. Hope to get through Melb before the afternoon rush.

Hi all,

what a way to start the season, a full on weekend of sailing covering both extremes of wind, if you didn't go, you should have followed Tim's example of dedication to Mossie sailing. England Wednesday night, Paynesville Friday, Lake Eppaloch Saturday morning. shocked What was your excuse confused

With 8 Mossies in Division 2 (racing hobie 16's and Paper Tigers) and 6 with spinnaker in Div 1 (racing A's, Vipers, Taipans and Capricorn) Mossies where well represented, but there was room for more. At presentation people thought there was a echo, with Gary's on Mossies taking out Div 1 & 2 cool. Well done to the older Gary wink.

Thrice Bitten had some of the wildest rides ever on Sunday under spinnaker without capsizing and the new Irwin sails certainly went well, as Thrice Bitten completed the first lap in one race in second place outright shocked only an A one boat length ahead.

All in all a good weekend of sailing and socialising, a great start grin roll on season 2012-13.
