  • Biography
    After dumping the Heron my dad bought a brand new a Hobie 14 and sailed Clontaf from around 1972. I sailed Manly Juniors from Manly YC which included chasing ferries and avoiding Hydrofoils. After racing around on Hobies and Taipan's, I'm on a Capricorn and enjoying the close competition.

  2. A water sports helmet saved me a trip in an ambulance today, and possibly a long stay in hospital. Not a real fan of the Helmet I adopted the lid. Working towards the lay line for the top mark I was able to get a little above a F18. He was busy gardening and removing weed from his daggers. As we entered more pressure close to the sand bank the F18 pulled ahead. I dipped lower to pick up speed and sacrifice some advantage. The F18 was going to call to tack as we were running out of water depth. (we were both port tack) As I was on the F16 I knew I could run a little closer to the bank. Thus

There is s solid fleet of 5.8's each year. The 5.8 do a triangle course. The triangle is set highish and not too wide.
  6. Ah. I love an adventure. I was looking at a NSW event for OTB cats... Wollongong to Newcastle. Sailing the most populated coast of Australia. 1. Wollongong to Kurnell, 2. Kurnell via the Harbour to Manly. 3. Manly to Pittwater, 4. Pittwater to Central Coast, 5.Central Coast to Newcastle. These legs would utilise club facilities at each finishing point. I would limit the course seaward to a boundary at 2nm. This would be policed by support craft running the boundary. The 2nm boundary would keep the boats within land visibility and minimise safety requirements for each boat to carry flar
