Eagle 6.5 – “Hot Gossip”

HG 1

Price Reduced Even Further – $9,000.0 $7,000.00

Originally from Canberra and then South Australia, “Hot Gossip” sailed the ASBA Nationals at RYCV in 2013 to finish 8th overall in a fleet of 21 boats and has been based in Perth, WA for the last year or so (so looks like the boat should be headed to Darwin if it’s doing a lap). As Greg says, she is a great starter boat and has all the gear you need at the right price.

Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron adds sports boats to their racing

This season the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron has introduced a sports boat division to its mini regatta program. This means there is a separate start for sports boats on their mini ‘B’ regatta days which occur on Saturdays every few weeks.

Apart from opening this up to all sports boats, RSYS have invited their membership to participate in sailing sports boats through their fleet of new Elliot 7’s – the new flush deck design by Greg Elliott. We understand there have been as many as ten boats on the start line in the early races. We expect this good attendance only to go up as word gets around and other clubs like the CYCA bring their fleet of Elliot 7’s along.

This is an exciting development for sports boats in Sydney which to date has been well served by the Sydney Amateur Super 30 fleet. RSYS’s format will involve 3 short windward/leeward races. Hopefully RSYS’s initiative of offering their Elliot 7’s to their membership will trickle down to more participating in sports boats in Sydney and hopefully wider afield.

If you want to find out more about this fleet, contact Chris Stone via the RSYS website www.rsys.com.au.

Well done to the tourists, NSW based James Dwyer takes the Victorian State Championship title back across the border with him after an almost perfect picket fence (straight wins). Coming up in a close second place was Greg Schwerinski with KISS and a hopefully stoked Peter Rae in 3rd.
