  1. The regatta is now just a month away. Lady sailors from mixed crews who want to attend the Womens and Girls regatta are invited to register with details on their intention to sail as a skipper or crew so that Humpybong can compile a roster or list so that those positions on boats can be filled to get as many craft on the water as possible.
  2. Can anyone advise when was the last maricat built, and are anymore being built or are Nacra's the go to boat in recent years?

  5. We had 51 boats for Humpybash and Saturday was picture perfect but more challenging on Sunday when the wind and waves kicked in .. but everyone seemed happy.
  6. I am happy tp report Jellyfish are remaining scarce in Moreton and Bramble bays and expected to remain that way for Humpybash next weekend. Principal Race Officer Allan Crawford is preparing to ensure racing begins and is staged on time for all events on Saturday and Sunday 17 & 18th. Seabreeze is predicting 10-15 knots for Saturday with likelihood of the same for Sunday so premier conditions for the event. If you haven't registered as yet please do so to assist Humpybong in catering and logistics for the weekend .. go to hyc.net.au hope to see you there
  7. Humpybash is now just a fortnite away if you are keen to attend and haven't registered already please do so .. The weather is back to glorious Queensland high 20's with sea breezes so the on water action should be fast and furious.
  8. HumpyBash is being held on the 17 & 18th of October and is hoping to attract as much interest as at July's WinterBash which saw 151 boats attend. Further info: hyc.net.au
  9. The Fifth annual WinterBash regatta hosted by Humpybong Yacht Club attracted 151 boats last weekend .. We had 121 boats registered by friday morning and more registrations were made on both days of the event. Competitors came from Gladstone to Coffs Harbour, Drizzle interspersed with showers on Saturday didn't put as damper on the highly competitive three races held but Sunday was sunny with strengthening easterly winds to provide a beam fast ride for the divisions talking part in the marathon from Woody Point south to Sandgate, north to Scarborough and return to Woody point pier.
  10. There are over 120 boats now registered for Winterbash this weekend and numbers are continuing to pour in .. we have competitors coming from Sydney to Gladstone and over a third of entries are two or three up craft. A who's who of multi sailors are coming so competition will be hot. The forecast is for decreasing showers with temps of 21 sat and 23 sunday .
  11. The SE Queensland Nacra Association is running its State Championships in conjunction with WinterBash
  12. https://www.hyc.net.au/events/67772/ Over the weekend of the 25th and 26th of July the Humpybong Yacht Club will conduct its fifth annual WinterBash regatta for yachts, multihulls, trailer sailers, off-the-beach dinghies and catamarans. In addition this year, we are hosting the South East Queensland Nacra titles. Humpybong Yacht Club is a family focused sailing club and we actively encourage competitors of all experience levels to take part. We have advice from a full range for boats from trimarans down to lasers that they will be coming; from Bundaberg in the north to Murwillumbah
  13. Thanks for the comments.. Windrushs are pretty rare here in Brisvegas but there are plenty of Maricats around so thinking of going down that route once again.. I've had two before so know what to expect.and they are pretty rock solid still, The other plus is they have an active NSW and ACT Association which still holds Nationals etc. i would like a newer style cat like the Calypso with their narrower bows but its a case of seeing whats around and what attracts me again.
  14. Looking at getting back into a 4.3 catamaran .. Was the Calypso 4.4 a mainly fault free cat or like the Alpha Omega 4.4 had handling issues?
  15. can you put up a pic of the sterns and is there any sail insignia?
