Spoke to Robbie Lovig tonight and was given the news @ the regatta

2 days of racing completed before Vandals hit the boat park.

Ronstan had his carbon Marstrom snuffer smashed and spinaker damaged.

Wild Thing had one of his rudders smashed

Wet & Wild had more than a 1/2 dozen holes punched in it.

Recipe for Disaster had all the tools stolen from trailer with sail boxe broken and kite pulled out of snuffer.

A Class fleet vandalised also. All I have heard so far is

1 A Class (German Flyer just bought from Glenn Ashby) had a hole punched through the bow.

Another A had a forstay cut and trap wire partly severed. Skipper noticed the trap wire when he jumped out for the first time.

The Tornado fleet declared no racing for the day and tommorow is a lay day. So all damaged boats are expected to be on the water Wednessday. Security have also been hired by the sailors and will hope to be re-embersed buy the Class Associations.

Police report has been filed and they expect that they are locals but the dumb Fu@ks have not been caught.
