See you at Inverloch!
Now seven Sailfish coming, still hoping for more!
And check out the attached Comment about the 2018 Paynesville Classic Boat Rally . . .
Notice of Race.
At the 3rd Inverloch Classic Wooden Dinghy Regatta in January 2016, Andrew Chapman, an organiser of the regatta, relaunched “Debonair”, Jack Carroll’s first Australian Sailfish (Sailfish No.2, built 1957). She had been restored by Andrew and with it he won the “Best Presented Sailing Dinghy ” award. “Debonair” will be back again in 2017.
Andrew is the Coordinator for the 4th Inverloch Classic Dinghy Regatta to be held 26, 27 and 28 January 2017. The exciting news is that Jack Carroll will be attending to reacquaint himself with his historic boat. We will also have local boat 1870, “‘Off”, owned by Jeff Cole, Steven Floyd with 3400, “Gargle Blaster”, Greg Barwick with 2028, “Bruce!” (named after co-designer Bruce Scott), Ian Milton with “Apsu” and Chris Cleary with 1918, “Janus”. Plus, Peter Chapman, the first NSW National Champion will be sailing Gooney Bird, the last NSW Registered Sailfish, so far! To all the other old Sailfish skippers out there, drag out your boats, dust ’em down, check the rigging, wash down the sail and come along to what will be a wonderful occasion.
