Hi Peter,

I'll be there on some Mossie or other, there are at least 3 that float sitting in sheds around Eagle Point that I am sure nobody will notice if I steal. wink

Peter... I'm still recovering from the emotional scar left by being the first person rescued by your new boat sick I recall spending rather a lot of time stuck in your lovely mud, mast first. I've got a clash with kids sporting commitments but at this stage I'm planning on making the Sunday.

Cheers

So come on, we don't want to hear about who's not coming (understand you can't make it Matt and Tim's in England), but who is coming?

This weekend has offered some of the best spinnaker sailing ever in the past, great place to learn to go fast with your spinnaker and nice small fleet with short races (Sunday), keeps it all close. Prior to that you get to stretch your legs in the long race Saturday.

Can't beat the local hospitality either, make a long weekend of it, bring the family and enjoy the beautiful beaches and bush away from the crowds.

Due to the weather forecast on Sunday which is predicted for 35kns winds and storms,the Mosquito spinnaka states has been postponed to a later date.The race on Saturday will still go ahead,so if you can make the saturday it shoud be a great day.

Hey Simon, not everyone posts on here, there are some old sleep mossie sailors that don't embrace such high tech stuff, give you a hint PWS wink , was also attending.

But if you really want to improve your position in the fleet at the cat champs, why don't you see if one of those A classes that just sit around in the yard is available for me to sail? grin save me stealing a Mossie from Eagle Point. laugh Gary at Petes place.

Hi Simon,

thanks for the offer of asking, was just kidding, but if somebody was game to lend me a boat and Insurance etc was all ok, I guess I would be up for it.

Anything to help improve your finishing position. wink

Gary (still at Petes place).

Good call by Peter N on postponing the spinnaker states,

Had a great long distance confused sail on Saturday, Karma Cat was flying on awesome flat water and wind gusting to 20 knots, only problem was it was too fast cry, with lots of reaching and only took 90 minutes cool .

But big wind frown came in even earlier than expected by 6am sunday and kept going all day. But it wasn't all bad, I got back to Paynesville and had a great sailboard grin , using the smallest sail I have a 4.5m on my old narrow board, it was awesome and out of control at times crazy.

Hi All
Rye looks able to hold the spinnaker states on 14-15 dec need a bit of feed back if this time suits? if so will arrange something say 2 races sat and 4 on the sunday.. let me know interest as I am aware its close to christmas
and if we can only get a few boats it may pay to hold over till the new year
