Are there any detailed pictures of the 1160 transom extensions, have heard it done on the 1000 but not on a 1160 , sadly very little actually on line on this boat given its great race results to date,

Re: Hamilton Island Race week

+1 love to see a photo of the quick 1160. And just to confirm. It's an 1160 with diesels? Wonder what an optimised Lite would go like?

Re: Hamilton Island Race week

Brett Kimmorley is recording similar times to some of the racing boats. I assume they use the same course. Just amazing??

Re: Hamilton Island Race week

Well its all over for another year.

What did we learn?

Nautitech Open 40 with keels was faster than the daggerboard equipped Outremer.

In the seawind only division the 1000s' were generally faster than the 1160s'

The cruising mono hulls (3,4) sailed the same courses as the cruising cats (1,2) and had faster elapsed times than the cats most of the time.

Cue the outrage.

Must be great living in your world.

How about posting the actual results?

Different Courses Chris. See attached table of the courses and the divisions and length. It is as best I could work out from the the sailing instructions and notices to competitors and so on and distances are approx. MR is Multihull Racing, MC1 is the general Cruising (including some Seawind) and MC2 is the Seawind only get together and as indicated earlier that includes some boats that are actively in charter certainly optimised against racing rather than for it! I hope that helps. If I get time I'll put together a table of elapsed times for the races with the distances.

The sailing instructions have an attachment with the course directions and a chartlet for each. See it here SAILING INSTRUCTIONS

Re: Hamilton Island Race week

Andrew

Thanks for that. Very helpful.

Interesting to look at the results averaged out over all races in terms of average knots. Based on times there was a lot of wind variation over the week.

Frank Racing - 11knots (Winner - competed all races).

Stardust was the fastest cruiser I think (Andrew can correct me on that) at 7kn average

Interesting that Boat Works averaged 11kn but only competed in 3 races - I suspect they had significant technical issues.

In the cruising 1.

Tyee III (winner) averaged 5.7kn over all races
O45 averaged 4.5 kn over all races

In the Cruising 2.

Renaissance averaged 5.4 kn over all races and won the event comfortably.

Re: Hamilton Island Race week

Found some video of the cats racing , including a shot of vivacious hull extensions on the 1160. Looks like not all crews were that serious about the racing though ....

I assume that in this PC boring as ****, "rape culture" fearing, LBGTIQXYZ society that Australia has become, that the "figure head" component of the race finishes is no longer acceptable?

Thanks Andrew. You must have better eyes than I have. Which one is Talisker?
Btw, I never saw figureheads at Hamo. Airlie fun race yes
And thanks Factor. You obviously have your finger on the pulse so love some more insights into the fleet and performance.

Maybe that's it. It was 25+ years ago when I would have seen something about it so maybe it was Airlie. So the fun police haven't killed it yet?

The "Great Whitsunday Fun Race" will be hosted by the Whitsunday Sailing Club on Saturday Sept. 13 . off Airlie Beach.
Plenty of time to get there from Greece or litte Athens.

Yes, there is a Miss Figurehead prize and even a multihull division.

Re: Hamilton Island Race week

Fun Race done & dusted. I wasn't there but some that were mentioned the constabulary. Even saying something like breatherlizing skippers last year. The fun police rules it seems.

If I was single and was up that way, I'd definitely be going to the bars in Airlie to recruit a crew for the fun race
