  7. Sunstate Hobie put up a pic and story on Facebook of a new Hobie 14 going to a keen Gold Coast owner.. When asked they said they've sold nine new H14s in the past year.. So there is some interest in the class and if those numbers continue you would expect there may be a return to good numbers in club cat fleets. How many new Maricats and Windrush were bought in recent years? https://www.facebook.com/sunstatehobie/photos/pcb.3983115731775162/3983115275108541
  8. 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.

  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
