Sailing

Hi All

Has anyone else applied for a rating? I have the application here, and one of the things it ask is sail number. I was thinking it might be nice for us to come up with a standard. I was thinking FP36### where ### is your hull number. Coments please.

Larry

Hey John,

Are you back down in beautiful Sydney Harbour?

Trying to work out if it is you or Reflexxion at Bayview. It was going dark when we went past in the dinghy on Monday night.

Racing a Mahe 36

Well last weekend we raced in the Lock Crowther Memorial Regatta here in Sydney.

It was a "working sails only" regatta for those of us in the cruising division.

2 races per day with an arbitrary handicap system.

There were 8 boats in the division and on Saturday it blew a good steady 18 knots for the morning race and then 20 to 25 for the afternoon race. it truly blew and the rain made it most unpleasant.

There was just the Admiral, a friend of ours and me on board with the Admiral steering. She had never been racing before let alone steered during racing.

Results: Winner of race 1 and second in race 2 !!!!

There were three Seawind 1000 and other cruisers including an Oram 43 and Crowther 52.

The Seawinds were faster than us downwind but we were 5 degrees higher than them upwind and much faster. For example, in the second race we went around the last mark three boatlengths behind a Seawind and in a 1.5 mile beat we stuck 5 minutes into them.

Sunday saw a change in the weather (or at least the wind). Light and patchy breeze with lots of holes (still raining).

Results were a last and an unable to finish inside time limit.

Again the Seawinds were faster downwind. They are a lot lighter. Once they had a gap the different wind all over the course made it difficult to bridge the gap.

A great weekend and some interesting lessons learned.

You have to be able to barberhaul the headsail off the wind. It allows you to goosewing even when you are not DDW and gives a much better sail shape when reaching.

Even in the gusts on Saturday afternoon which exceeded 25 knots the boat felt stable and in control. We did not reef. the feeling I got was that upwind the leeward hull just bit in a little and gave 2gether heaps of height.

Photos, if we get any, to follow.

Cruise has been great. I would say more but my "office" is rocking a lot. The weather the last couple of days sucks and we are in an exposed anchorage. On a schedule so I can't just wait it out.

I am heading back and will be back by around the 26th or so.

Hi Tor

Sydney is pretty warm at the moment and very nice for sailing.

Thanks for the information I will try it and see how I go.
