Good to see more all girl teams on the water!! Unfortunately I won't be there, as my boat is still in Airlie for a few weeks.

Hey Tash,

what do you mean your boat will be in Airlie for a few more weeks confused. Are you back in Vic or coming back?

Well it was all wind and capsizes over the weekend 6 mossie braved the strong forecast with saturdays strong winds keeping a few on the beach ..
Garys moment of dismasting thanks to a side stay breaking at the swag was caught on film was a bit of a highlight... sarah and kate sailing together did better that all the boys sailing in all 6 races, both were looking very weary
last night..
with a quick repair and slightly less wind sunday saw all boat on the water
all in all a hard series but as usual a good time was had by all there.

Burying Karma Cat past the main beam, managed to assist in breaking the sidestay, Tim has already thanked me for saving him from a DNF somewhere in the future mad.

Check out the photo sequence of Karma Cat coming to grief cry and lots of other great shots, including the first of the new Olympic Cat being sailed by Pip and Jimbo literaly flying around the course and winning races on a Yardstick 1/2 a point slower than a Tornado cool .

At sailingshots.com.au
then portfolios tab.

Really good pics, must have been a shock the rig coming down. What part of the stay broke? Fatigue or slipped out of the crimp?

Yeah I was expecting to hit the water in a capsize. Breakage due to fatigue above the bottom swage.

Was a pretty windy day on Saturday, hiking over the rear beam going dead downhill or even a little by the lee at times trying to keep the bows out, defiantly was not gonna put the kite up :S
