  1. Yesterday
  2. started racing a recently purchased ($350) windrush 14 needing a lot of love at my local sailing club. Really enjoying getting back into sailing but sails have had there day. Being a father of 5 kids, can’t afford to buy brand new set. Wonder if anyone in the windrush scene has a as-new main and jib looking to upgrade. I am hoping to work up to sailing in the titles for the experience in the next year. Matt
  3. I have an old mk 1. Hulls and beams. Free to pickup from Lismore northern NSW. I'll try to put pics up in the photos section. I was told it had a brand new tramp so grabbed it for free but the tramp was sun damaged & I don't have the time to restore the hulls, though they look in better condition than my mk 2 hulls. No major cracks. Been reglassed on the hull bottoms.

    kick up rudders wanted.

    Hi darcy1945, do you still have the rudders available?
  11. We had 51 boats for Humpybash and Saturday was picture perfect but more challenging on Sunday when the wind and waves kicked in .. but everyone seemed happy.
  12. Ki ora i recently acquired a run down surfcat 14 that had been abandoned and i've been repairing it over the winter and getting ready to try sailing for the first time !!!!!!!! The tramp needed re stitching which i had done by a local upholsterer but when i feed the rope into the runners on the side i get about 1/3 of the way down and it unzips out again. i checked with the upholsterer and he didn't change the rope that was on the tramp. Can anyone tell me is this a common thing and you just have to struggle with it or is something wrong with the tramp rope. Thanks in advance and im getting pretty excited to get the boat on the water now. Cheers Steve

    Windrush Jib for Maricat?

    Jish, I have a good Mari jib for $150, another fair $100. Windy jibs are smaller, but will do the job almost as well. Darcy 0243591729.
  15. I came across a Windrush Jib for sale & wondering if it will work with my Maricat 4.3? I don't think my hulls are worth putting new sail & tramp on so been looking for a cheap Jib to replace my old torn one. Thanks in advance 🙂

    Windrush fleets in the Geelong area

    Hi Manni Have you decided to buy (or have bought) a Windrush 14? I have one at Anglesea, c/w trailer. It's in reasonable to good condition. It's sloop rigged and I have a spare mainsail, hulls, tramp frame and tramp (all in worn condition). I've sailed cats for 30+ years but health issues mean that I'm no longer able. BTW I've seen Windrush cats at Portarlington, St Leonards and Indented Heads. They probably race in season on handicap against other cats. I've sailed mine solo off Pt Roadknight at Anglesea a couple of times, in races with The Anglesea Motor Yacht Squadron which comprises about 6-8 Hobies. Contact me on this forum if you want to discuss. Cheers Bruce Golder

    Gday, just picked up a maricat and rigged it up in the driveway for the first time in a thousand years by the looks of it, anyways, I'm wondering if anyone can post a pic of how the sheet is routed for the main traveller. Also there is 5 saddles fixed to the underside of the rear beam, anyone shed any light on this? Lastly, something I overlooked when making the sale, it's missing the dolphin striker, anyone got a pic of one and can it be MacGyvered or am I able to sorce one somewhere. Cheers
  23. I am happy tp report Jellyfish are remaining scarce in Moreton and Bramble bays and expected to remain that way for Humpybash next weekend. Principal Race Officer Allan Crawford is preparing to ensure racing begins and is staged on time for all events on Saturday and Sunday 17 & 18th. Seabreeze is predicting 10-15 knots for Saturday with likelihood of the same for Sunday so premier conditions for the event. If you haven't registered as yet please do so to assist Humpybong in catering and logistics for the weekend .. go to hyc.net.au hope to see you there

    Maricat 4.3 Jib wanted

    $120 sounds good, I'll give you a call. I do love the thrill of the extra speed with the jib solo on trapeze. But I'm only about 68kg so I guess under the class limit for super sloop. Also I'm struggling to tack with just the main (mast has race rake). I could shorten my fore stays a little to reduce mast rake but I've already noticed the tendency for nose diving as it is. Cheers Darcy

    Unless you are 90kg+ , you should sail "Cat rig", Mainsail only.
