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...

Re: NHTYA 3HR & 6HR Race

Thanks to Kim and Norm for their patience on Saturday waiting for Mango Madness to finish the NHTYA 3 hour race. We made it a 4 hour race by sailing a long, long way to round the wrong mark (first time racing on this course). It was a great day with every wind strength and multiple directions keepin...

Re: Careel 18 new owners with lots of questions

Hi Susanna, Congrats on your Mark1, I've had mine for 30 years and still love her. Over the last 3 years I've refurbished the hull, cockpit, floor and keel of my boat. I'm lucky to have a mate Dave who's an expert on coatings and he's done most of the work. You can see what we did on You Tube under ...

Re: C22 Mast Stepping

Hi Helen, I didn't realise Silkie is a C22. I sail at RANSA on Sylvara with Dave Giddings and occasionally have my C18 mark 1 Mango Madness alongside at RANSA (last time was Pirates Day).
