Re: FP Owners Club

I am surprised at the amount of " negatives" being expressed in this forum about how bad " the frenchs" are and what a terrible brand FP appears to be . Surely gents , no one did put a gun to your head and forced you to purchase such a product.
I own and Lavezzi , and I am full of praise for what she is , fast , reliable , safe , easy to sail and providing my partner and I with some sensatrional times on the water .
Vive la France et Vive Fountaine Pajot

Re: FP Owners Club

There was a rally last year for FP in the BVI, we had registered but needed to pull out at the last moment for medical reasons. Friends that attended had an awesome time.

We were some of the fortunate ones able to attend the "Owners Rendezvous" in the BVI's last year. The French, besides building great sailboats, really know how to party!!! We met some incredibly great people, including the FP agent for the Caribbean who has gone out of his way to help us several times since.

Re: FP Owners Club

Multihull Solutions was planning an FP get togeather this year in Sydney and the idea was put to all FP owners in this region, but the idea has been put on hold for the time being.
I am sure if you were to contact MS in Mooloolaba they would put you in contact with other FP owners in your region, or if you wish contact me and I will help any way I can. We are Sydney (Port Hacking ) based.

Regards Gordon.

Re: FP Owners Club

Hi Gordon,

Does Sydney have the largest fleet of FPs in Australia?
I have been told that Sydney has the most Seawinds so I was wondering if that was the case for FPs

Re: FP Owners Club

HI Dragon,

As you know, there are plenty of FP's in Pittwater. At least three Mahe two or three Lavezzi and a number of older boats.

When you get home the numbers will be better.

Sydney Harbour is not home to many (if any) FP's.

Re: FP Owners Club

Hi DtM,

looks like we will be neighbours for a while, as we are planing to use one of Zappa's moorings.
Maybe we can organize an FP event in Pittwater?

Re: FP Owners Club

What you may want to do is add an owners list per boat model.
Here is the FP Mahe 36 Owners List as of May 5-1-2011.

Owners

Re: FP Owners Club

FP Heading North,

Hi FP owners , just wondering if any of you guys are intending to 'migrate" north this winter. As a member of the Southport Yachtclub I am starting to see quite a few Mono stopping for O/Night in Southport while on their way to the whitsundays. We are looking forward to the Sanctuary Cove boat show up here as I beleive that there will be a new Orana Evolution on display .
See you all at the FP Stand.
Cheers

Good idea, is it possible for the forum to be set so that all owners can put their boat on an owners list no matter what they own?

Unfourtunatly not this year, last year was great except the weather.
It's certainly the place to go in Oz if you are shopping for a cat.
