    The 36th Nacra nationals is to be held at Wangi Wangi on Lake Macquarie. Between the 29th December 2014 to 4th of January 2015. A large fleet is expected in all classes and will feature the first nationals for the Olympic Nacra 17. Lake Macquarie provides flat protected water and plenty to do for the whole family. There are camping spots near the club we recommend you book early as it is the peak summer holiday period. More information is provided on the flyer attached. Hope to see you there.!!

    I've been informed by the assoc member who is getting our new website up that it is only a few weeks away, it will be structured so as the assoc can update it ourselves, rather than the old model which required a web designer to make any changes to the site, with charges levied to do so. A big vote of thanks to Mick for taking on this project. Phil

    Thanks for that Mark Yes I am now the president, "hooray for me". It was not really something that I wanted (read I did not want it at all), but I accepted as I feel that all members should have a run on the committee to share the load, and so I accepted. If anyone is not happy with how I perform please let me know and I'll be sure to nominate them for President next year. On the subject of yardsticks, let me say that we had an AGM on Sunday morning that was supposed to start at 8am, there was hardly anyone there, so we postponed it to 8.30 am to allow for latecomers, the yardstick item was brought up in general business and it went to a show of hands as to accept it or not, as I recall it was clearly for acceptance by all sailors and owners grp and foam. If members don't turn up to the AGM, how can they have their say. If I didn't vote in the recent Federal election am I entitled now to complain about the outcome seeing as I was not concerned enough about it on ballot day? Mick did put it out to all concerned previously on facebook and here that we would have discussion on possible changes to the class, re trap for juniors in cat, spinnakers, diamond stays on the mast etc, so there was a warning that this kind of stuff would be discussed.

    Mick you are a wimp letting this little hole stop you racing. It did not damage my boat when I hit you. Don't worry I will not fill the hull with water bottles when I repair it!

    I have spoken to the president of Toukley re holding our nationals at the Brass Monkey, they do not have a problem with it and have said yes. So yes it will be at the Toukley Brass Monkey Regatta which is held over the June Long weekend. There is planned to be 3 divisions Cat SS and sloop. As to whether we have our own start will be up to the club, and dependng on how many other 14s of different classes turn up to the regatta. Phil

    Hi, I'm trying to find a good home for a 24ft Roger Simpson, wrc strip planked and glassed catamaran hull I have, sitting on it's jig at my home in Sydney's west. I have drawings, a dagger board [glassed] and rudders all wrc, and some bulkheads. I'm moving and can't take it with me. It's free to anyone who would like to finish it as a cat or it would make a nice tri. Otherwise I'll have to cut it up and take to the tip which I really don't want to do. Can anyone help in any way?

    I can support Tony's comment as I rebuilt this boat back to race condition, The boat is a bulk head windrush with the bulkheads reinforced. It was raced competitively at PKSC for many years. Very competitive at WLBC. I was going to keep and race it myself until I found a foam boat, any questions call me 0421 927 146. Paul

    No need to put the waterbag on your back. Get a heavy duty garbage bag and stuff it in your lifejacket. If you capsize hook the righting line on your trap harness throw the bag in the water, let if partially fill then pull with both hands over your head.

    Its a simple problem to solve. Most infusions new or second hand will come with a set of class sails. Run your f18 gear all year until your once a year class states or nationals. Then pull out your unused nacra gear for the nacra event, if thats what your interested in. Your expensive nacra sails will last for 10 years if you do this, and you'll always have a fast barely used set. That way you'll have more money to spend on cheaper and quite often faster f18 sails, if you want to get that serious. Hobie sails are a very similar price by the way. This is what we used to do with our F16 viper. The only problem was going back to the factory sails was always a bit of a disappointment.

    Bartz like Interested said, most insurers will offer a basic 3rd party, though may be worth your while to try a marine based insurer 1st, such as Club Marine as an example, (I'm in no way touting Club Marine they're just an example, they did afterall give me the big A, but thats another story) that way you dont normally get asked silly questions, like "is the hull and engine in current survey", or "well you'll need to have your boat inspected by a licenced marine surveyer, where abouts is it moored"? "Its not moored its sitting in my driveway on a trailer"! As the ad says let your fingers do the walking. Phil

    In relation to Helmets. Due to anti-coagulant meds (coumadin) I now wear a Gath water sports helmet. (As seen in my profile pic I have just noticed). In my case a smack on the head may cause more than normal bleeding/bruising. No one has said anything negative about wearing a helmet. We're not fish. If we are knocked out on the water it's water we are going to suck up and drown.

    ok ive managed to purchase the insertion rubber from clarkes. 100mm x 1.5mm. im going with the single piece and cut the slit down the middle once it has been glued on. it seems pretty slippery so hopefully it wont grab onto the plate as im coming back to the beach. that can only end in tears.
