I'm with you Oldfield about the boat choice. We are pretty sure about Jeanneau's as well and it will most likely be out final choice. But, to hear it from an owner and a person who has sailed other boats for direct comparisons is great!! Don't get me wrong, we have too but it is nice to get confirmation from others in our choice!!

Looking forward to the rest!! thanks!!

I'm going with a large group (12 boats!) in 2010, and your comments and photos will be very much appreciated!

Brian,

I guessed I missed it but I reread the entire thread just now. Did you mention the name of the charter company?

I think I just may have convinced 5 buddies to do a charter for hamilton race week next year and would be curious about you charter company.

Through some personal contacts we may have an inside track with Sunsail but I thought I'd get your input as well.

Trip

Brian,
Sounds like you might be back one day. I am still slowly heading back to Bris but not in any hurry!! Spend a week with family in Gladstone & at present spending a few days in Pancake Creek. Somene has to do it.
ps that 3g network by the big telco has worked extremely well on this trip. I've got signal here in Pancake Creek & this area has not got a lot of houses!!
Regards Bill

Dan,

We used Queensland Yacht Chaters, however, Sunsail is a good one because they Charter out of Hamilton Island. This is a good place to start and finish as well a visit or a little R&R.

Provision from the mainland as the cost will be less. Hamilton Island charge $14.00 for a bag of ice. Although cheaper $8.00 from the tackle shop. We had to hunt around to fid the tackle shop the tackle shop. $28.00 for a pizza etc.

Thanks - We are seeing if we get the momentum up. We all figure it's a once in a lifetime trip to do race week.

Don't fancy paying $12.00 or $8.00 for a bag of ice but I figure that's just another $12.00 I won't be buried with...

I hope it works out. You know how these "guy" trips go...

Everyone is gung ho until you ask 6 guys to chip in $1,500 each for the boat and provisioning. Then they all seem to remember they are married - LOL...

Bill,

As a computer programmer you know I would stuff it up. Have a good trip and thank you for "doing it" because otherwise I might have to leave this desk and do it for you.
