Re: Bay2Bay 2019

John see who else you can stir up in NSW. This race is as good as the Marley Madness with all the excitment you would expect with such close competition. Its also nicely weighted in terms of effort: 1. Friday travelling, putting the boat in the water, bus transfers 2. Saturday a late start after a g...

Re: 51st Marlay point overnight Race

I’ve done it once with the great Don Ray! Maybe again but not his year. A bridge too far!

Re: c18 mk1 hervey bay

I’ve got lazy in my old age and sail regularly on Moreton Bay with both a lighter Careel 18 with the 64kg CB and now the Mark 3 and the 168kg CB! The later is a joy in big airs on the northern bay compared to the old one....never looked back!

One week to go.....any NSW takers? It is in your territory! Ask Neil and Pam or Goodie just how good the cruise is.
