Congrats on your beer tastes - all except the Bitburger. There are plenty of better German beers around :D . Keep drinking the Hansa and Altenmunster please. Have you tried Erdinger?

Re: Bay to Bay 2011

Good advice John, we drove home from Bundy this morning, calling in on friends at Tin Can. We came down the Cooloola Sands road and spent quite a bit of time dodging the potholes, slowing down for the gravel bits etc. Tip-Sea won't be doing the B2B this year but the crew may give it a go next year. ...

Re: 18th Surf to City

Sure we had to stop for 2 ships and we were doing the 15.4 under headdie only. You [i][b]think[/b][/i] you did 15k under headdie and main. We sailed from Peel under headdie, no main, all the way home just to give you a chance to catch up and we had no damage to sails. :lol: Handicap - only the ones ...

Re: 18th Surf to City

Hey Andy P, heard the only way you were able to catch up to Tip-Sea was by arranging for 2 ships to come through the channel just before they were going to cross. Nigel and crew weren't impressed. :cry: :roll: They arrived back at Sandgate with no injuries and no damage to boat or sails luckily, but...

Hi Lorri
Going back a few years we used to come across a t/s called Enya around Moreton Bay, they had a couple of small dogs and a duck on board. Wonder if it's the same one.

Hi Lorri I call the thingies "modesty panels". Upsets those we go cruising with that have them no end. I'm glad other people call thingies, thingies.

Geoff Beautiful bimini (trimini), would never be without ours now when we are cruising. On Airtime it looks like the main sheet is still at the back of the boom and through the top of the bimini. What happens when you are sailing 'cause the boom is not often in the same position as in the photo? Mig...

They got him safely on board with a bit of difficulty due to the conditions, went into Raby Bay to ge...

Poor Drikko
The cause of occasional brain fade is "lack of sailing" - get out there, get some salt air into the lungs - guaranteed to fix the problem. :lol:
I have the same problem, I haven't been out since Aust. Day weekend, and the brain fades are coming through thick and fast these days. :(

Hi Stressy
Assume you mean the Wintersun run by Royal Queensland YS?
Go to their website, click on Marine Sports, scroll down and you can download off the internet.
Hope this is of help. Better be quick, it's on 5/6 July.

I think I'll keep mine too, so long as he doesn't try to wash the windows too much while I'm on board and continues with the joke "racing is secret men's business" so I can stir him and especially his crew by threatening to come along :lol: .
