You can enter online at this link:

Sauna Sail online entry form

If you are a Mk1 sailor be prepared to enter your crew's name. There should be a prize for the most imaginitive crew's name invented (if you've already entered you can go back and "improve" your crew's name through the above link).

So far 17 boats have entered of which 6 are Mosquitoes. Thats 35% Mosquito. Sounds like a good ratio to me. To keep it that way we need another Mozzie to enter for every two entries from any other class. Let's make it happen!

List of current entrants

Also interesting to note that only 4 of the 17 are monohulls.

Nice one. Good to see Neil and Matt have also risen to the challenge. The Mozzies are making an impression already.

The winner will be decided by popular vote (clapometer?) round the camp fire. There will be a prize of some sort.

We are now 8 out of 22 entries. keep 'em coming.

Hi all,

16 Mossies pre entered is a great effort. cool

I think we could see 20, knowing some that haven't entered and with new ones turning up in Paynesville almost every day, shocked some of which may get there.

Would be a great tribute for Philip's Birthday, he was my first contact when I got into the class back in about 97'and he was helping Mossie's grow in Victoria before that and since. Funny thing is he doesn't seemed to have aged much since then, maybe it is the beard. wink Or maybe I have aged with him. cry

Hi all,

the Mossie Swarm is growing in Paynesville, 1747 and 1749 have been recently purchased from S.A. and are intending to attend the Sauna Sail. That makes 19, plus some others we know are likely to attend. We could end up with the largest fleet, would't that be a surprise. grin

Well done on getting so many Mozzies going! Of course you need twice as many Mozzies to go to match the percentage of 5.7's built that are attending grin
Unfortunately I have to cross Melbourne and that means racking up fines for not paying for toll roads that I'm never aware I'm on, so can anyone tell me how you prepay the tolls.
regards Jeff

Jeff,

Go to citylink and pre-buy a pass (buy pass) for the weekend and one for the Monday. I assume that you would only need one for the Westgate freeway tunnel and Monash Freeway. More info is available at the following website.

http://www.citylink.com.au/

If you were to use the Eastern Freeway (Ringwood to Frankston) then that would be a different tollway (Eastlink). frown

See you at Hazelwood.

Regards,

Peter

I don't live in Melbourne so didn't want to pay up front for an E-tag that I would hardly ever use.

I found instead I could open an account with Citylink (no cost to do this). So now I just drive anywhere I like and if I happen to go through any of those toll points they look up my rego and a week or two later just take it out of my credit card. The only extra charge over having an E-tag is a rego-spotters fee - about $1.50 for the day I think.

It's great - I've never had to deal with Citylink since.
