The News
Written by SoPYC   
Monday, 29 September 2014

 The Geraldton Ocean Classic is now only 4 WEEKS AWAY and entries are starting to come in slowly.  This year we expect to have a solid line up with Hoodoo Man, Jaffa, Calm, Optimus Prime, X Factor, Fourth Dimension, This Way Up, Finistere, Endorfin, Nyari, MEII and Farrago all expected to take their place on the start line come 24th October. With a bit of luck we may also see Black Betty, R2D2, Sue Sea,  Knot Dreaming, Impulse, Blondie and Dirty Deeds as well, all of whom are believed to be  possibilities, so fingers crossed. 

 The Notice of Race is now available in the YWA Offshore Handbook for 2014-15, so all of you who are sitting on the gunnel, batten down, sheet to it and get your entries in.  

 This years race has the makings of being one of the best coinciding with the 100th Anniversary of the Geraldton Yacht Club. As always for any assistance in getting your boat, crew and or entry ready please don’t hesitate to contact the club.


If you are planning on doing the race but are not in a position to put your entry form but know in advance that you  need the loan of a life raft, please let us know NOW!   Arrangements can be made to loan one to you if we have a request in from you early enough.  if you require a raft, please advise by what size and type you will require and we will do our best to source one for you

Team Gilmour in Lelystad

Team Gilmour in Lelystad, Holland for the inaugural Dutch Match Cup, the 5th event of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. 


This week the tour has moved to Lelystad in The Netherlands for the 5th stage of the Tour, this is the first time this event has been run and all the teams are excited to spend a week here. We will be sailing the MaxFun 25's, which are a light sporty boat with a large Asymmetric spinnaker. We feel these boats will be well suited for us as they are quite dinghy like and our team has done our fair share of dinghy sailing in the last month. 

Racing will get underway tomorrow with the qualifying round robin, followed by quarter finals and finals. Stay up to date with the results on our facebook page or on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour website with the links bellow. 
Recent news: Skipper Dave Gilmour with crew Rhys Mara has recently finished a very credible 7th in ISAF 49er World Championships in Santander, Spain, and Ed Powys TG tactician finished 14th after some bad luck in the protest room.

I suppose it would be politically incorrect to suggest men with camera's should wear orange jump suits and

travel to far away desert regions ?  

The stink boaties were sceptical that what they saw was a classic forstay kite set executed with the precision

and timing more suited to river racing than out the back of Rotto in 25knots!

Trouble In Hoodoo Land
The News

 roving nameless reporter was on the water on Saturday doing check point duty for the poweries when he noticed Chris Higham and crew slipping out onto the water on his new purchase to try a little crew familiarization.

As one of the crew was known to the reporter, it was natural to say hi and wish them well on the day

As a matter of course, the reporter carried a camera to photograph the power boats and on our way home noted that Hoodoo Man was behaving rather oddly, so as he headed past them, he raised the camera and took a few images. 


I’ll leave that to Chris to explain.  We trust they have things sorted in time for George Law race in two weeks!
