Harry, on his black mossie from Portarligton said he would also be there. also maybe 1 or 2 more.
could say something about ballast but it could get me in trouble.:)

Good Man Harry, if you are talking to Lachie or Sam Stephens, you should ask them to come as well.

Very Good Al, Not sure how we can help with your mum Harry and I think a Pirate should be able to get something that can make paint dry!!

Well I had a ball, what a fantastic regatta that was well supported with 8 mosquitos swarming around and a 9th turning up today but unfortunately not getting a sail in after the final race was abandoned due to exceptionaly strong winds

We had 3 sloop mozzies and 5 cat-rigged mozzies all buzzing around the course in hot pursuit of Ross
The other class that was in my opinion awesome were the Light-Weight Sharpies, amazing sight seeing 5 of them round the bottom mark with kites flying and barely a coat of paint between them, some of the best racing action in a hotly contested event !!!

As for Twice Shy.....
Friday was a disaster with a smashed rudder case, minor damage really when we had other boats with similar issues and holed hulls on top of that..... Twice Shy was one of only 5 boats to finish that race, if you call limping a damaged boat across the finish line a finish
blush

I picked up a trophy for race 2 so all the worries went away instantly.... (I'll post a pic of the trophy table later, all I could say along with many others was WOW !!! )

The face book page has already had lots of photos uploaded so if you want more ..... click me

Many thanks to the Lake Bolac committee that did an amazing job and cheers to all my fellow Mozzie sailors

364 days to the next one and counting...

couple more pics.....

my 'home' for the Easter break, basically a flash shipping container but nice n warm and comfortable.
There's an idiot box on the fridge and a small dining table beside me, so its not in the shot.

Race 1 on Friday was hell as you can see from the results, high winds and bullet gusts did a lot of damage and most pulled the pin early.....
only a few of us toughed it out, as strange as it seems 3rd,4th,& 5th are all mozzies shocked
seems them flash cats couldn't hack the weather as well as the old designed mosquitos
grin

I wasn't that far behind Harry on the last leg, but a shattered rudder case and subsequent capsize left me well behind and after what seemed an eternity I managed to limp her to the finishing line with rudder down and the other at all sorts of angles dangling out the back.
The break was definitely my design fault combined with the strong gusting winds...... more on that later in twice Shy's thread
