Next month.. can't wait. We've got the Open Day for the 18's & 21's here in Melbourne on 30th September at Docklands. Port Phillip is pretty good (waterside cafe's), although the chop can be nasty when the wind gets up. The Gippsland Lakes is fantastic, but my dream is to spend a week off up the Hawkesbury.

You should wander along where they're rigging up one day and ask for a ride. The NSW web site is: http://home.iprimus.com.au/youngenr/ts16/

Even though the design is 30-years old, Hartleys are really fun to sail and extremely solid (one club member rolled his car whilst towing a '21 on a back road, winding up upside-down, trailer on top, with no more damage than a broken companionway hatch) and roomy for their size - I reckon there is more usable space in our 18 than in an RL24.

As the logo says: "Classic not Plastic".

Looks like I have hijacked another thread. Bad Wombat.

I'd reckon the TS would be great for a semi camping tour of the Hawkesbury. No problem getting a TS under the bridges and , particularly in the cooler months when the skiers are off for the winter, the Hawkesbury is simply lovely and you've also got Cowan Creek and Smith's Creek with lots of lovely little bays to anchor in overnight. Our old boat could just get under the Harwkesbury Bridges and I miss not being able to head upriver.

The Brittany thread was already crackin' me up but after re-reading number 8 again with the suggested alternate wording I think I just spotted.
