IC wanted

Hi guys, Just throwing out the feelers to see if anyone may be looking to upgrade their IC before the Worlds and have a relatively new one for sale? I'm currently tossing up between getting a new one built in Oz, a new one built in the US or a near new one in the US to campaign the Worlds in then br...

Re: Suggestions for NSW regattas/ sailing days

If I can split the trip with another SA IC or two then I'm interested. Though Sauna sail is a bit closer

Re: Roll Call: Whats happening around the Clubs?

Merry Christmas Everyone, Nicole, Amelia and I wish you and your families all a safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. It's been a bit of a quiet year Aussie IC wise, but we're seeing some movement in the eastern states again which I'm keen to capitalise on (expect a Nationals next year as par...

Re: Ordering a C-Tech mast. Anyone want to share shipping?

I'll be looking, but not til mid to late next year - still trying to work out where I'll find the time to build a new boat (may have to see if MECHAR can do a design and build).

Re: 2014 Worlds

As you know, I am in. I have some ideas on support again, but it will help when we have an idea on the numbers of interested people- helps shape the campaign.

Re: Suggestions for NSW regattas/ sailing days

I can't commit just yet, need to see how some work things shape up - as soon as I know if I can get to Canberra I will let everyone know.

Re: 2011 Nationals - Milang Regatta Club Oct 1-3 2011

Sorry a sum up of the Milang weekend has taken a week, but its been pretty hectic around here. Once again Milang turned on a superb weekend, well okay it blew a gale Friday night and Saturday was blown out - but the club still put on a great social event on those days and when you participate in a w...

Re: 2011 Nationals - Milang Regatta Club Oct 1-3 2011

Hi Everyone, It’s one month to go until the IC Nationals at Milang, so that means its time to brush the cobwebs out, do the trailer bearings, load some wine in the car (though we have the best wine in SA anyway) and get ready to drive to the lovely Milang Sailing Club. I will be doing an online regi...

Re: Mixed regattas this season

It's been said before that for for a small number of boats in a big country like Australia, the cost of travel is a big issue and seems to be becoming a bigger issue with time. Frank Raisin had an idea that he's been discussing with me, for a "Travel Less Trophy" series. It's based on the principle...

Re: Mixed regattas this season

Ah the frustration of Aussie ICs as we near nationals time (its the only time I hear from people, so they can tell me they aren't coming). Not sure I'll do a lot before Christmas this year, but if there are some Australia Day regattas and an Easter one etc then I'll be up for some travelling - as us...
