Damaged Fibreglass Repair

Hi all,

After the Bay2Bay race last weekend I incurred a hole in my hull after the wind pushed my boat on to the tip of a catamaran which pieced the hull above the waterline.

Are there any recommendations for a repairer in the Sydney or Newcastle area?

Thanks,

John

Re: Bay to Bay 5-6th May 2018

Hi Don, Sadly the Tin Can Bay Yacht Club lost one of their training yachts a Status 580 (yet to be found), luckily two adults a youngster were quickly rescued. Mango Madness turned into a surf board on the long run down past Big Woody Island with the fast ebbing tide against a strong breeze causing ...

Hi Paul, Mango Madness is registered with the same crew as last year.

As winners of the Healthy Queensland Sunny Attitude Award last year we're looking forward to actually doing well in sailing!

Cheers,

Re: 50th MPONR

Hi Paul, there's currently 51 yachts registered fro Div A with a little less than 2 weeks to go, last time I did the Marlay in 2016 there were only 31 entrants in Div A on race night.

Mango Madness came 7th on handicap. Got a new mainsail this time around so hoping we'll do ok!

High & Dry at Burrill Lake

Hi Careelers, Just finished the annual family holiday at Ulladulla on the NSW South coast (3 hours South of Sydney). I always put my mark 1 Careel Mango Madness on beautiful Burrill lake which is a great place to sail, fish and generally enjoy being on the water. Although normally not tidal, this ye...

Re: Happy 2018!

Hi Trotts,

Mango Madness is having a holiday on beautiful Burrill Lake just South of Ulladulla. This is a lovely deep lake with easy access and a safe anchorage.

Next big event will be the Marley which is shaping up to be a huge occasion celebrating 50 years!

Re: C18 Lines and sliding hatches

Hi Don, having raced my Mark 1 "Mango Madness" in the Nationals and Bay2Bay I'm very keen to implement the improvements you suggest. I can see it would make a world of difference when pointing against the wind. I don't have the tools or expertise to do the sliding hatch and CAR tracks myse...
