Mk1 entries have just overtaken the spinnaker entries.

There's about 10 days left to get your entry in to avoid the late entry fee.

Hi all,

about 2am this morning (don't ask) I suddenly remembered the need to take Perpetual Trophies along (after forgetting some last year and getting them mailed at great expense). So thought I would try and remind all of last years recipients.

Don't forget to take any National Mosquito Perpetual Trophies along this year and if you're not going and have one at home, make sure you pass it to somebody that is going.

Hi all,

Is there an official or considerate person designated to post daily updates/results this forum or the FB page?? I'm sure there are many of us unable to make it, keen to be updated and made jealous by some of you folk...

Hi all,

Layday today so time for things other than sailing and socialising.

Great turn out of Mossies for nats, the fleet looks great spread out on the grass at Speers Point, beautiful location, shady trees for camping and rigging at this small friendly club, weather warm and humid. Access to the water a bit tight down concrete ramps on to rocky shoreline but with everybody helping each other out all good. Must be biggest fleet in NSW for a long time and great to have 2 from QLD & 2 from NSW.

Monday morning invitation race was light from the south and all went well. Then Monday arvo, time to get serious, with south east winds at 10 to12 knots making it choppy in the middle of the course. Few boats where ocs in the cat rigs, some went back some didn't as can be seen in the results. 2nd race was back to back, similar direction, but picked up to 14.5 knots. Wind was shifty, but not to difficult.

Tuesday, wind was further east, coming off a headland, very flat water and very gusty, about 15 to 18 in the gusts with big holes. The jelly fish caused problems for some, with rudders popping and some lock downs broken for those that didn't pop. Wind picked up as the afternoon went on with 3 bto b races run smoothly. Places swapped a lot for the small sloop fleet, but cats and spinnakers were more consistent, with th o exception of a number of calpsized in the cat rigs confused But as usual Unko had the fun and be the first spin to get wet whilst leading in the last race of the day.
Looking forward to getting back into it tomorrow, you should all be here, lock itin[spoiler][/spoiler] where ever it is next year, there is nothing like a Mossie nats bats. grin

What a fantastic Nationals! Great venue, good wind and lots of fun racing with other Mossies.

I started compiling a list of all the people we would like to thank but the list just got too long. So to all you guys and girls who gave us encouragement, advice and help, thank you!

To all you Mossie sailors who didn't come, you missed out on a great time.

Yes. the 43rd Mosquito Nationals were a raging success.

To all those that competed well done and congratulations to all the place getters.

To all of the people that were responsible for the organising and running of the event ,a very big thankyou.

With the risk of stating the obvious .Without the interest and time shown by their volunteering efforts, these events just wouldn't be possible.

Finally.'What a great group of people the Mossie class has'. Everyone made the northerners (Qld/NSW)feel very welcome and shared a lot of their Knowledge with those of us that are new to the class. From attending hopefully we can better represent the class in mixed fleet regattas.

Now when I am reading the forum a lot of the info can be put into context and a face put to the names.

Hi all,

First installment of my very bias (only from my perspective) Nats report below.

My Nats this year where not normal to say the least, having launched my new Mossie 1830 "Still Bitten" only 2 weeks before, I had not sailed for 8 months and only had 5 days on the water with sailing time varying from 1 to 4 hours each day. Thankfully with the help of the local Mossie Fleet on 2 days, I knew the boat was "up to speed" straight away.
The trip to Speers Point at the Northern end of Lake Macquarie NSW, started with a big packing up job as “Still Bitten” was joined on my trailer by “Bee Alert”, double decked on top. A short 3 hour drive from Paynesville to Bomballa just over the border in NSW late on New Years day was decided to be a good idea, before stopping in a Motel to make the long haul slightly less long on Friday. A good nights sleep was had and a relaxed 7.30 departure with a stop for Brekkie at Cooma after only an hour on the road, helped the big day of driving get rolling gently. Traffic and roads where good except the roadworks near Canberra and the hours flew by, even Sydney didn't slow us down for long and we arrived at the Speers Point Amateur Sailing Club (SPASC) earlier than expected, about 3.30 in the afternoon. The boats and trailer where dropped off, then it was time to find the Caravan Park and go “hunting & gathering” a large shopping complex was found and a weeks supplies of food and fluids, suitable for elite Mossie sailing athletes procured.
Saturday morning was a lazy one followed by a trip to the local chandlery at Warners Bay to procure some missing bits (fit for elite Mossies, lol.) Well what a breath of fresh air “Bob Fussell Marine and Sail Centre” is, I thought shops full of stuff for “Off The Beach” sailors had gone the way of the Dinosaurs, but one still remains in Warners Bay and was visited many times during the championship week, by most of the Mossie sailors, followed by many positive comments. Back to Speers Point and the unpacking weighing and measuring started, for the small number of early Mossies in attendance. “Still Bitten” came in just 100gms over, after having guesstimated the amount of lead required to be added, before she was launched in Paynesville just weeks before, making for a hassle free start to proceedings. Then followed a relaxing late afternoon and evening as more Mossies arrived and beverages where enjoyed.
Sunday another relaxed start, before arriving at SPASC to welcome more new arrivals and old friends, before more measuring, this time sails. Including spinnakers and “Still Bitten's” brand new “Irwin” spinnaker made of a new fabric (for Mossie Spinnakers) which measured no problems. Then it was time to rig and go for a burn in the building seabreeze and flatwater, a few hours of sailing up and down the southern shore line (buzzing NS14's on the way in from their final day of titles) in ideal conditions left me grinning and competitors worried (as “Still Bitten” looked and felt awesomely fast), but would the conditions be seen again during the week? Then it was time for more relaxing beverages and food, before retiring to the cabin to prepare for the start of the serious stuff on Monday.

Hi Gary .

Good to see you've updated your forum details to suit your new rig.

Also a big thanks goes out to all the scholastic members of the Gippsland Sailing Academy.
