Sounds good!

'till next year then..

Here, AS (less often now thanks to a certain Large Ego) and a NZ Classic forum are the only places you'll find me.

Although I value the opinions of a respected few here very highly, for any real issues I tend to ask a couple of shipwrights I know.



Yep, I remember her.. and I remember how uncomfortable they all looked without a targa-top to protect them from the hail! Serious hard-core, that lot.

You sayin' we might have come third? Hmm.. maybe. There's always next year - in Bent's new boat.

The Woodenboat fella btw was even named Cameron and spoke about two boats, one of them a trailer sailor. I just figured ..... wrongly as it appears.

Nationals got cancelled. Ironically enough, because there weren't enough boats registered to turn up.

With the nationals cancelled and my boys on school holidays, I've been spending time with the family locally (beaches, parks, that-kind-of-thing). I've worked the morning and then taken my kids out every afternoon this week.

We're actually heading into Sydney on Sunday to take the boys to the Maritime Museum. Ridiculously cheap train fares and the boys still think of train trips as an adventure. It's not sailing but it's still a good way to spend half the weekend

Re: Heaven Can Wait 2012

Well as it turned out we didn't need to do the rudder pintles and the old girl ended up back in the water last night. Bucketing down in Sydney right now and rain predicted for tomorrow morning at least.

We'll probably just mooch around the harbour, maybe take a loop out and back if the weather is good.

I confess I feel a tadge guilty at not being on the lake.

Avagudweegend chaps.

Re: Heaven Can Wait 2012

Probably, Hartley18. Another mate of mine was going to enter, but had all his safety gear stolen from his boat. Murphy's Law is a real @#$% this year.

Taking the kids out to see the start tomorrow before heading over to Speers Point for an afternoon of not busting a gut racing (i.e. kids play, the wife & I read over coffee). Seventy two boats across the range of classes able to sail the lake should make for a great morning.

The seventh annual Heaven Can Wait regatta starts at 11am tomorrow morning and the forecast is looking good.
Must be because we didn't show up. Oh, well...

My wife's uncle was diagnosed with Leukemia just recently and all he got was 3 weeks from diagnosis to dead. His funeral is tomorrow.

I say that to say this: These are all good causes to be supported..
