  1. There is a 5.5 in Australia?

    Second cat ideas please

    I have sailed all the above boats and all are good for cruising. Currently I have a Nacra 350 that is small but I take it out with my tow kids and it has no issues at all even in a blow. Looks modern and goes well for a little boat. Feels like a bigger boat. I personally (don't hold this against me) like the Hobie Getaway. I have sailed on often and like the size, the wings for comfort and the space for the kids to get around on it. OK. It is not a speed demon in anyway, but it files a hull easily, I couldn't nosedive it nor capsize it in a blow. It is heavy to handle on the beach which is a cross against it, but it you have easy access and a hand getting it around then I think they are great for social sailing. H18 or nacra 5.8…. not a cruising boat in anyway at all.

    Looking for a Nacra 18square

    That is great news. I have only sailed on once and absolutely loved it. They were quite popular back in the 80's and very fast.

    Looking for a boat

    Lock and Load. I am now the owner of a Nacra 350. The pocket rocket. Picking it up tomorrow from Bundaberg. The owner is meeting me about half way which is awesome of him.

    Looking for a boat

    I am looking for a small Nacra to take the tin lids sailing in SEQ. A Sirocco with a jib would do fine. Please let me know if there is anyone out there looking to sell a small Nacra. Thanks. MSC
  6. That's my old boat. The sails are class legal and she is quick. Do you still have the old sails????

    Lake Cootharaba [ just north of Noosa]

    I am moving up there in December and looking forward to sailing on the lake. It is a magic spot. Anyone wanting a skipper or a crew, I will be around.

    Foam Windy

    I am selling my foam Windrush as I am moving interstate and have no place to keep it there. It is very light and sails like a dream. Mylar sails and an unregistered but fantastic trailer with a sailbox and spare wheel. The jib and main sheets would need replacing in a year or so but all blocks are good. I am looking for $2k for it. Located in Hunter Valley matt@towerestate.com

    london olympics

    And hopefully another 2 on the way. Why do 100m sprinters not have to run everyday for 10 days in a row and then drop their worst result and the one with the least points gets the medal? Just saying.

    Bloody rudders

    What if we don't eat ice cream? Just kidding. Thanks. I will have a look at it when I am home in daylight. Thanks guys.

    Bloody rudders

    Did the bloke who invented the mechanism for the Windy rudders have a Phd in complication? My port side one is perfect and runs brilliantly. So does the port one but the tiller sits way too low. Any suggestions? It works brilliantly except that it is about 4 inches too low. MC
