Will be a great regatta - I am looking for a spinnaker boat for a very experienced sailor who is looking to join the fleet for the weekend (Robbie Lovig). If you know of any boats available, please contact me.

Cheers

Matt

Hey Matt,

Has Robbie had a go on a Mossie with spinnaker? What did he think?

I know he liked the Mossie without spinnaker when it was windy. He was pretty quick when there was some wind at the Non Spin States at Somers. Hope we can find him a Mossy with Spin.

I have a spare Spin if that is any help, will keep ears open for any potential boats.

Looks like I am shaky now for states, went sailboarding late yesterday arvo and got thrown off the board at high speed and hit the water backwards and hyper extended my back, struggled to get back to shore. Now moving hurts, only thing I can do comfortably is sit in a seat, Physio's advice is rest and recuperate.

Hope I can make it next week sick

Matt you found a boat for Robbie yet?

Don't know if I will make it, Physio today said less than 50% chance, I have had some Xrays today no obvious fractures so thats good whistle , won't get final word till Friday 1pm. Driving is still a big problem, never mind sailing sick. But I live in hope. smile

Anyone thinking of coming along to the Spin States this weekend, please fill out the Entry Form before Saturday. It's much easier and quicker to do it now than wait until the day.

No longer living in hope, I won't be sailing, I have arranged for Robbie to borrow my boat, so those attending had better not give my boat a hard time wink

Hope the sailing goes well, should be able to see results on Sailres.

Vic Spinnaker States, only 5 brave Mossies on the beach, winds gusting 20 knots, should make for some awesome spinnaker sailing, Peter N, Neil, Daniel, Matt and Robbie L are racing now. Where are the rest of you?

First 2 races completed, Daniel leads from Robbie. Pete and Matt have a DNF? Results are up on Sailres, just search Mosquito and look for 10th Victorian Spinnaker Titles.

3 races are now on Sailres that's it for the day. Robbie's worst place was when the tiller extension Matt loaned him broke. Typical of Matt, sabotaging boats that he knows are faster wink

Only boats that didn't have a swim where Daniel & Robbie, well done. Pete got 3rd in the last race with out using the kite, thanks to a swim by Neil and Matt Sabotaging Robbie.

Sounds like a big night tonight at the club, with more Mossie sailors arriving and in the morning, forecast is for lighter winds and I think apart from Daniel they are all looking forward to an easier day tomorrow.

Waves where not big today, but seastate was described as a washing machine, very confused. Club race fleet was small today so I guess, if the locals aren't keen to go out, it was tough conditions for the Mossies. Well done to them all cool.

Day 2 finished, Mossies are back on the beach, wind has varied from light 5-8 knots, to fresh gusting to 17 knots.

Ended up with 8 Mossies as Phillip WS, Trevor & Eliza and Mitch Meade (on boat borrowed from local, Jeremy) joined in today.

Well done to Matt, but what a result from Robbie, a real "Rock Star" apearance, charging home, almost stealing the win. Must be on a fast boat cool

Results on Sailres.

Re: Victorian Spinnaker State Titles - 11/22/15 08:23 AM

I was watching from Paynesville on 1 minute still shot beach cam and wind strength on Willy Weather, so beach cam shot is the best I could do. With the weather being nasty yesterday for normal club race and the few club members on deck today being busy running the races I wouldn't hold my breath for on water shots.

But Matt has put this on the Mossie Facebook site.
"Matt Stone Today was lighter. Started off in 3 to 5 knots, pin end biased startline with the tide running out making it hard as it was pushing us over the line, i won the first race of the day with dolphins swimming anf jumping out just in front of the bows and under boat, great site to see.

Wind was about 10 knots i the next 2 races, robbie found the fine line of the very complicated maskeil boat. Came down to the last mark on the downwind port stb rule ( call stb on me so i jybed and they jybe, grr made me angry) well done Robbie Lovig, i will get u next time.

Wind picked up to about 13 knots, and most boats have been over laying the mark as the forgot the tide home knowlage and sailing angles came to an advantage, but robbie daniel and i at gate with pressure on daniel getting down kite with tangles in ropes caused a swim made him slip back a few places.

One race people forgot how to count laps as i finished race in 1st and people were doing another lap and question myself , but nope i was right.

Really good racing and thanks for somers yc pit on the regatta for us. We did have 10 races planned but tume ran out and 8 races were run. Thanks to all the resuce crew and race officer and the club providing the dinner, was a successful weekend"
