  1. Hi all, First time posting long time stalker. I have had a windrush 14 for a while now (17 years) and just shredded the jib which might be 30 years old. I have a very specific colour scheme (black and white) , so I think I need to find a sail maker in Sydney , any suggestions ? Is Dacron the way to go these days for a jib ? I have a furler but is self tacking the an option ? I checked windrush and it seems to be down or gone at the moment ? any clues as to what is happening there ? I need a recommendation for a some cleats for the jib as my are long over du
  2. Hi there Im looking for anyone who might be interested in selling their/a Windrush 14. Please let me know.
  3. started racing a recently purchased ($350) windrush 14 needing a lot of love at my local sailing club. Really enjoying getting back into sailing but sails have had there day. Being a father of 5 kids, can’t afford to buy brand new set. Wonder if anyone in the windrush scene has a as-new main and jib looking to upgrade. I am hoping to work up to sailing in the titles for the experience in the next year. Matt

  6. Unfortunately, a legend of the WA sailing community has passed away over the weekend; Jay McFarlane. With his brother Richard, he invented the iconic WA surfcat catamaran, (the Windrush 12 - which was much copied - and then the still popular and 'unique' Windrush 14) - as well as a range of windsurfing boards. The Windrush 14 was recognised as being ahead of its time by the Americans too - who produced it as the Trac 14. Jay was 75 and windsurfing off Shoalwater last season but died suddenly Friday night. He was (reportedly) saying on Thursday afternoon that he was keen to get back ou
  7. Hi I'm a newbie and a few weeks ago I bought an old Windrush 14 it has 2683 on the sails and on the aft beam and yesterday was the first time I was able to take her out. Unfortunately after an hour on calm water we noticed the forward beam had started to punch through the port hull and the hull had movement. Can you please let me know what the issue is, and what is the best method of fixing the problem. Looking at the other mounting points I can see stress cracks which up until now I figured was just the gelcoat because of the age. Any advice or information would be appreciated.
  8. Hi everyone, My boyfriend and I have just bought a cheap & cheerie windrush 14. We've got a bit of sailing experience but not with cat's! Wondering if anyone knows a club we can join (we are in Mile End in Adelaide), which might have a few guys around who can help us set it up the first time and give us some pointers! We've been dying to take it out but can't quite figure the rigging etc... Thanks in advance!
  9. I have a Windrush 14ft for sale in the Wollongong area. Known as "Gecko" this Windrush is currently racing at PKSC and is suitable for a beginner or serious racer.

Comes with original set of sales and a Dacron main sail. Trailer is registered (sept). For enquiries please phone Jody on 0421985528.
  10. I'm wondering what vehicles people use for dragging their boats around. I'm in the market for a 2nd hand car that will be towing my Windrush, hopefully on a weekly basis. I'll be driving for at least an hour each way at 80-100km/hr including a large descent/climb (Mt Ousley near Wollongong) as I head to Port Kembla Sailing Club. At the moment I'm thinking a 2nd hand diesel ute (Hilux or similar) would work well, as i can also put it to use for gardening and work and the fuel economy wont be ridiculous when going uphill, but would like to hear what other people are using before I spend th

  12. Hi all, I brought a windie 14 cheap (in NZ sail No. 2093) that was in need for some TLC. Needed a new rudder (or two), some glass on the bottom of the hulls, work on the road trailer and a face lift would make it look a million bucks! But for the price it was still cheaper to buy it and invest in it and end up with a nice play boat. The sort of thing that I can come home use and put away, not really worrying too much about maintenance. However today while I rolled her over to work on the bottom of the hulls we herd something go clunk inside the Port hull. On closer inspection it feels that th
  13. Hey all, So this may have already been covered somewhere else on this forum, being a Car forum I'm gonna assume so however I'll ask again anyway. I'm new to this forum but not new to sailing, I've sailed big Monos and small Monos aswell as big cats and little cats however never have I used a Trapeze and Harness setup. Now the proud owner of a little W14 it comes with Trap and Harness, so I thought I'd consult the interwebs on hiking out on a trap wire before I go and do anything too special, my questions are this, is there any technique or anything I should know before giving it a go? Or is i
  14. Hi, I've recently purchased my first catamaran, a Windrush 14. The sails that came with it are in average condition and I am looking to purchase a decent second hand mainsail. If you have one that you are interested in selling please contact me Thanks
  15. Hello everyone. So, I bought an old windrush 14 and I'm having real trouble trying to set it up. I have read the manual, but, I don't really understand the terminology, and it seems that the manual has a load of stuff I don't. The first real issue that I have is the mast setup. It seems like there are two side stays, and a forward stay (headsail) that keep the mast up, but when I put it up the mast leans forward about 25 degrees. I can loosen the fore stay and use the main sheet (? the sheet from the back of the boom to the traveller?) to bring the mast up straight (which also brings to bo
