14ft Challenge - Sydney

Post by Kate » Wed Mar 12, 2008 3:12 am

Hi guys,

If you are in Sydney this Saturday (15 March 2008) there is a "14ft Challenge" at St George Sailing Club starting at 2pm. No NOR as it is part of club race.

I'll be there and sailing (hooray!) and so will Oli G. Racing is against any 14ft boat.

See you there,

Kate.

Twas!

Were running super late all Saturday morning but had lightening fast rig and would have made it to the start but for two capsizes!

Nice breeze, nice flat water.... very good for learning :D .

Out of the 14s results were:
1. The Muppet Show (Oli Merz & Greg Dixon)
2. Audacious (Neil Patchett & Simon Patchett)
3. Speed Freak (Kate Cooper & Ben Austin)
4. ??? (Kevin Linnett and ???) [sorry]

Good to see Kevin finish the boat and get it on the water!

Lovely day out sailing, hoping for a few more before the end of the season.

Next regatta for NSW fleet is Bateman's Bay on Anzac Day long weekend.

I estimate that it has been just under 1000 days since Kevin first told me of his rebuilding project.
