Boga and Paynesville both have Easter regattas worth going to this year. Details on the VMCA calendar.

If anyone needs accommodation for the Paynesville Easter regatta, I need someone to stay at my place in Eagle Point, to look after our arthritic dog (no walking involved!), as I will be away for Easter.
Contact me if interested - 0400 666 486

There is allways Mossies at Paynesville wink

I will know more about, if I can sail next week after the op, if there is not too much pain cry Recovery by Easter should be possible as long as it's not too windy (too strenuous) eek . Peter N is also staying at my place, so he's sailing Paynesville.

So current count is 4 Mossies, plus 1 possible smile That's better than none Matt and most will have spinnakers (great for the 30 nautical mile race), but I will understand if you want to sail somewhere else frown , where the competition is not as tough whistle .


Regards Gary.

Thats right - I am better suited to be watching and laughing from a distance blush . The task of beating you is best left to others laugh

doing this post to bump Easter Regatta thread smile , as I know my surgery is only important to me frown , the latest is 28th April grin that means all as normal for Easter and time to recover for Sauna Sail cool I hope whistle .

The Easter Regatta at Gippsland Lakes YC offers something different from the normal round the buoys racing. A long distance 30nm race, which travels around most of Lake King and part of Lake Victoria, you can spend an hour on one tack in trapeze strength breeze shocked. Also a Around Raymond Island Race, a quick dash if the wind is up that can take less than 1hr, currently Neil Joiner holds the record on a mossie cool.

Hey there,

Just thinking about driving down for the Paynesville regatta over easter. Like the idea of the long races and mixing it with some other mossies.

If I were, any suggestions on accommodation?

There may be 3 of us, myself, gf and daughter.

Hi Drew
You can stay at my place. I won't be here, but I think Matt might be.
