    Re: Sail GP in Sydney

    If they lift like that in 6 - 7 knots wind, what will they do in a normal sailing breeze of 20 knots or so. The prospect would be frightening. Well, maybe not to them!

    Re: Bow beam for 50 foot cat

    Well done! It looks enormous in the context of a garden.

    You must have a mighty big garage. Do you normally keep 10 cars in it or something, or did you build it specially for the boat? :-)

    That seems sad Paul, after all you have done and been through. Still ,sailing as far as NZ is pretty good going and you have done a lot on the way.
