this looks like being one of the biggest entries in a nationals for some time with a good spread over all divisions.
GET your entries in so we can confirm numbers with the club and suppliers

I do believe Cats are the most represented division at the moment :-)

So they should be with all those guy's leaving their spinnakers in their sailboxes. I hope they don't get sad cry when the spinnakers blast past on the returns all week cool

But don't worry they can allways change their division when they see the forecast. wink

Division MkI - Entry List
Sail# Name Class Crew Club
829 Buzz Mosquito Andrew Van Arend PVSC
1733 Touch N'Go Mosquito Mark O'Halloran LBYC
1734 Go-Nads II Mosquito Brad Spencer StYC
1747 Superfast Jellyfish Mosquito Doug Matthews RYC
1769 Goodnight Nurse Mosquito Greg Hackett PVSC
1781 Voodoo Mosquito Shannon Wilson AYC
1785 Bear Talk Mosquito Garry Johnstone LBYC
1787 Try Again Mosquito Tim Kennedy LBYC
1790 Bee Alert Mosquito Peter Nikitin LSBC
1794 More Than A Splash Mosquito Philip Warren-Smith RYC
1805 Just A Toy Mosquito Ian McAlister LBYC
1815 Sanity Mosquito Nicolas Maan RYC
1819 Cat-titude Mosquito Steve Thomas LBYC
1828 One More Toy Mosquito Trevor Armstrong RYC

Maybe a new nickname for the skipper of the most pranked Mossie in the fleet. Trevor the Trophy Hunter? Surely he can't go without the spinnaker again?

But over on Facebook Mark has come up with "Trophy Toy" looks like a winner to me grin

Whilst thinking of Trophies and the Nats.

For those that where lucky enough to take a Perpetual Trophy home last Nats,don't forget to get them engraved and bring them along or organise somebody to bring them for you. From past experience it can be expensive and or embarrasing if you forget blush

Winners that come to mind are Peter Dunk, Mark Pfennig, Peter Nikitin, Sarah Floyd and Tom Luitjes.

Awesome grin didn't think of that, now to find a few people that aren't coming to lend their boats and get a few more spinnakers out of sail boxes. wink

I am sure Tim could fix that so that we can see all of the entries.

I think Tim might be busy doing all that stuff he hasn't been able to do for the last few months whilst in England (even looked like a Pom last weekend white as grin )

There will be plenty of entry changes to come yet, so I think we will just have to be patient frown and wait until the 28th to see how it all washes up, but 36 boats + is now a realistic goal and fantastic for the class (does anybody know when Mossie last had that sort of number?) best I can see since 1999-2000 is 34 at Portarlington in 2010-11 smirk

Interesting to look at entry number in that time period, you can see the class has been building cool

One definite change I can announce is that Robbie Lovig will now be sailing in the Spinnaker division cool on Ian's boat 1805 (so thats one less Mk1 frown but one extra spinnaker smile ) thanks very much to Ian (Garb) for being so generous smile .

But please don't let my enthusiasm for the Spinnaker class, upset anybody. All that matters is that we get lots of Mossies on the water with people sailing them however the enjoy them cool 36 boats or more would be fantastic grin, remember there are still experienced cat sailors looking to borrow Mossie's, so beg borrow or steal crazy any Mossie's that aren't being used and let us know they are available.

Hey there,

1816 is sitting on its trailer in Brisbane.

The bloke who drives it will be away otherwise he would be driving down to sail this year.

If someone wants to come and get it to sail, I could be OK with that.

Apologies for the distance involved.

Hi,

Will check with Nic and Brett about doubling, not sure if their trailers are set up though.

Sort of guessed when Matt said it was for sale if I did not grab it straight away it would be gone within the week.

Had heard a few rumblings from Phil when I collected it.

Wondered if I would make it out of town.....

Only 12 Sloops so far? Pfffff... that's pretty poor but I'm sure we can get to 15.

It's all happening this is going to be the biggest Mosquito Nats for at least 16 years. smile

Robbie and Michelle have both been loaned Spinnaker Mossie's, so it will be interesting to see how they go adapting from the Olympic Nacra 17. eek

Then a old/young Mossie sailor is making a comeback, Mitchell Meade (ex 1747) has just bought Spin Mossie (Faye Hulls) 1750 (originaly a Bob Wilson "Bonnie"). cool

The Spin fleet is really hotting up crazy could be 13. cool
