lawrie ozzie and tim - dragon worlds
looks like another ex MR champ doing well - Ozzie once won the Ranelagh ST in my old Mood Indigo - not sure if Tim has sailed a Merlin. Looking at latest results they can do it with a discard. Good luck guys - I will be watching from Sydney (off to watch the skiffs on Sunday)
Have a look at the 'Dragon World Championships' website where there's a full report. Today our 1976 Champion and his crew won the World Championships in Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne by the slimmest of margins
Heard a rumour that Ossie has a new Merlin on order and intends to sail from his local club - the ever growing Merlin fleet at HISC.
I caught up with Ossie on the pontoon just before going into the last day. Sounded like they had a bit on this morning, with I think he said a 9 point deficit on the Germans with one race to go... They obviously pulled it out the bag though - very well done! I was staying in Melbourne and saw the racing almost every day in the bay - looked very impressive at a pretty stunning venue.
Think the fleet at HISC is now up to 15 or even possibly 16 Boats including Sailmaker Reps?
Maybe Lawrie could be tempted to have another go at the Merlin Championships?
