    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.

    I have a Hobie wave for sale. It is in excellent condition and has a spinnaker kit. It has beach rollers and a Jib. It needs a new tramp but I will fit one to it when it sells I just dont use it enough as I have 3 other yachts and they dont get enough attention either. It also has the back supports. Good little boat. I take the kids out on it. I also cart it around on my Box trailer

    Another windy day and Meningie

    On Saturday we attempted the longest end to end freshwater race in the southern hemisphere, the Goolwa to Meningie. After a painful light upwind stretch for nearly 4 hours the wind shifted behind us to about 20 knots and we flew downwind to catch up with the leading A classes and Taipans. From there the wind was all over the place and more than I was willing to put myself and my crew through. Maybe next year we can finish. I didn't get much footage, but here's a bit

    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!

    whats better than the trusty old electrical conduit !!! problem with it is that the conduit whilst nice n light is also very bendy so to stiffen it up I figured a lump of timber (wooden curtain rod) shoved up the inside would do wonders.... so why in this day n age when we've been a metric nation for god only knows how long ... why cant we get METRIC materials that work..... 20mm conduit needs 20mm curtain rod.... we have a choice of the trusty old 3/4 rod which flops around inside or 7/8 rod....22mm don't fit into 20mm I actually shaped the timber rod to "accept" the tiller fitting and the timber is now flush with the end of the conduit The curtain rod is around 4foot long and stiffens the conduit up nicely

    Hi guys, As mentioned in the other response, Formula Sailcraft has rudders and centreboards, as does Larry Fay at Australian Fibreglass Products. You can find contact details on the Paper Tiger website at www.papertigercatamaran.org However, they sell new ones only, so are quite expensive. If you are after second-hand ones, there may be some around, depending on the type you have (for a direct replacement) or the type you want (if you are looking to upgrade). You can put wanted ads on the website or we can include wanted ads in the Australian PT newsletter. Let me know soon if you want to place an ad in the newsletter (free), as we are publishing the next one shortly. You do need to determine the type/style you have. I suggest reading this article from the PT site, as it will explain this in detail: http://www.papertigercatamaran.org/images/media/centreboard-development.pdf Can you let me know the Boat Name and Sail Number of the boats you have so that I can ensure our records are kept up to date please? And feel free to ask any other questions you may have about the class. We're here to help!

    Don't miss the biggest F18 party of 2014. Come and enjoy the craic at Ballyholme Yacht Club, Bangor, N. Ireland. Many of you may know of us from running previous events or looking after your Aussie sailors such as Tom Slingsby and more recently Ash Brunning sailed with us last summer. Tom hasn't forgiven one of our older sailors (nearly 60!) for beating him round the club cans. Our Laser (Bapsy) and 49er sailors (Matt and Ryan) have been wintering in Australia for several years now. And brother Russell McGovern should be well known to those in W.A. (He's just had a baby boy, by the way) Anyhow to talk more of multihulls, we look forward to seeing as many of you who can travel over to race and party with us as possible. Check out our website 2014.f18worlds.com for details of how to get containers to us and unloaded. Ex Irish rugby star Gordon Hamilton is the man to talk to in Belfast to make your trip as easy and cheap as possible. Links and details are on the website and hopefully your association may help coordinate things. Keep up to date with us on twitter @f18worlds.com or Facebook. NOR will be posted in next few days. Look forward to seeing you soon...

    Bridge to Breakers this weekend! The biggest weekend on the BRSC calendar has arrived, with the Bridge to Breakers Regatta happening this Saturday and Sunday (Nov 16/17). This popular event is open to all classes and the focus is on providing an event that caters for all interests, competitive and social. The expansive grounds that surround the Club are in immaculate condition and there is ample space for people to store boats and camp over the weekend. The format will be much the same as in previous years, with a passage race (Harwood to lluka and return) on the Saturday and shorter races on the Sunday. A fully stocked canteen will operate over the weekend and a reasonably priced evening Saturday meal and Sunday breakfast are available..

    When I got mine it had been neglected for nearly 20 years. I sanded the gelcoat, replaced the ruined tramp, and went sailing. That's it. I think they must be a well made boat.

    Those cracks just look like paint/gel coat cracks. I don't know much about this sort of thing but I'd reackon you could probably sand it back and cut it in.

    I've seen Macca cartwheel. And me as I was laughing so much. A maricat nosedives easier than anything I have ever sailed. [This message has been edited by Emmessee (edited 21 May 2004).]
