    Setting Up Jib

    Call Darcy, his phone number is in this section. Answer is yes but you'll need different forestay setup abd jib sheet brackets at the least. But, there are many who just sail with a mainsail. Once you master tacking they are a good single hander.

    Roller reef code 0 on windrush

    I'm hoping I won't fatigue as much in the noble, having the wing seats keeping of the water, and a dry bum

    Yeah I tried all sorts of sheeting angles didn't recut sail, just enjoy it. I've done a few crazy adventure long distance day sails with it. Dongara to Geraldton, 65kms, dongara to Keenan, about 80kms. Port Geographe to Augusta about 150km 2 days sailing around cape Natraliste and cape lewin. Amazing stuff with support boat solo. Next project is hobie 17 super sport, with furling code 0 and a asymmetric kite in a chute..... New adventures to begin
  11. Selling a Maricat 4.3 Mk1 with Mk2 rear beam. Has new rudders and tramp, new stays and all new ropes. Comes with registered trailer. I renovated the boat last summer, but am moving interstate. The pictures with the sails are the old stays as the new stays are longer for a raked mast. Also includes several parts including a 2nd mast, spare boom, spare rudders. Also includes jib, so can be set up in both cat and sloop configurations. If interested PM me or leave a comment below.

    Setting Up Jib

    Hey Guys might be a stupid question but... I'm in the process of buying an old Maricat 4.3 it looks pretty good but it only comes with a main sail. going of the photos it doesn't look like it has any rigging set up for a jib but I could be wrong. can you set up a Jib or are there designated models like the H14 and H14 turbo that will run a jib? Thanks

    Older plywood cat

    Hi another newbie to this site, I was the last Secretary /Treasurer of the Victorian Quickcat Association prior to it's disbandment, the last President Jim Etheridge and myself designed the new aluminium bridgedeck in a last ditch effort to combat the loss of skippers to the Dolphin, yep I am an old salt. Some oldies may remember we had what we called a country championship to help promote the Quickcat in country areas, this was the brainchild of a Sorrento Y C Skipper John Good (Black Sails) Yes I did sail against Bob Foreman and the last of the great champs Alan Goodall, when sailing against them it was only a battle for second place, being a lousy skipper the only way I could beat them was on a Tornado. Still have the Quickcat promotional 8mm home movie and also the 8th Australian Quickcat Championship held at Elwood 1974-75, thinking of getting them digitised.

    Marie 4.3 New tramp required please

    Look through this forum and you'll find numbers for Mick Colecliff for anything new and Darcy Wilson for second hand. The Brisbane Catermaran centre will probably make you a new boat!
  20. Hi everyone, complete newly here, I have a second hand 4.3 that I am trying to restore. I specifically need a new tramp but a number of other parts as well. I am in Brisbane Qld, does anyone know of a website or store that sells parts for these please. Thanks in advance Matt

  22. Thanks for a great write up, how long is the marathon race
  23. FWIW Big fleets compete at WinterBash Icebreaker Sailing Regatta Sailors from Ballina to Bundaberg and west to Toowoomba have packed out a huge two days of sailing action at the Humpybong Yacht Club WinterBash regatta at Woody Point, Redcliffe on 27 & 28th July 2019. Humpybong Yacht Club president David Begley said WinterBash attracted over 128 boats from off the beach large Nacra 5.8 and A class catamarans to junior Opti’s, RS Tera and Bug dinghies. WinterBash saw the yacht club’s rigging yard jam packed with boats and the foreshore and adjoining grassed areas taken over for space as competitors arrived and set up for the weekend. Some 50 junior sailors attended a series of hotly contested races in perfect sailing conditions including a fantastic Le Mans jump in and sail race start on Sunday.. Senior solo and teams vied for the lead in three hotly contested races across four divisions from multihull, to dinghy divisions in the triangular course, the Three Can Bash on Saturday. All competitors were on the water on Sunday morning jockeying for a start advantage during the running of a series of triangle courses for the junior sailors and the adult and senior sailors marathon race. The marathon started from Bramble Bay to Woody Point jetty south to near Sandgate Jetty, a return course back north up to Suttons beach and Scarborough, before the final return leg back to two finishing buoys anchored off Woody Point jetty. “Ideal sailing conditions, near flat water and great visibility meant that spectators were able to follow the fleets around Bramble Bay and from the many great shoreline vantage points from Sandgate to Scarborough during the marathon.”“WinterBash is a major event on the sailing calendar and marks the start of preparations for the 2019 -20 season and provided opportunities for skippers and their crews to refresh and refine their skills and maintain and update their boats and equipment in preparation for the Spring and Summer racing calendar.” “”Our next major drawcard event is HumpyBash on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October 2019 which is expected to attract again Queensland and interstate sailors from novice to international sailing competition level.”
