Half way - Just a Quick One

The boys are doing exactly as expected - with respect to racing our places are


So not too flash in the racing, but then what do you expect. We have had moments of brilliance that saw the EAs at the head of the fleet but by and large we have just settled into sailing well and are dealing with handicaps, etc as usual.

The experience, so far, has been much more first place. Epic one might say. Today was Whitehaven Beach day which saw the Escaped Aussies and friends sailing back to Hamilton Island under an Escaped Aussies kite after spending a beautiful blue sky day on the beach. We've had to say good bye to Jamie Couten (Nude Nut) drawn back to Sydney on Business but other than that the comraderie, etc is, well, epic.

More news when the fun and sailing is a little less all consuming.

T-2 Lazy Planning Days in Sydney

London has arrived, San Francisco and Atlanta are here. Toronto is allegedly in Brisbane. The Sydney Siders are trying to wrap up work and it's everyone heading North. A year in the planning and it's almost upon us.

Today will see some practice on Sydney Harbor with a very very exciting spinnaker being released... stay tuned for pictures and details.

While we haven't set foot on Kioni yet, Darren & Kieran (brain trust) and Brett were eyeing another 47.7 yesterday.. my, oh my that's a big boat. Plenty of main and lots of reason to pay attention.

Tonite is the kick-off party / fund raising event at the CYC and then racing updates from Hamilton Island.
