I know cherubs tend to nosedive, but those blokes were stringing way to far back...

The 49er looked slow compared to some of the other boats, and I thought they were quick!

The AUS Cherub is an Intermediate class with plenty of juniors.  If you want an advanced, balls out 12 foot dinghy.....  In OZ, you get a 12 foot Skiff.

 

Great regatta with 70 participants on the books.  All soughts of Dinghies, Skiffs and a few cats.  Most cat boys did not know about the regatta, pre season maintanance being carried out or at early National Titles.  Next year would like to get the word out to the Cat guys and get a strong showing.

There was 2 A Class, Hobie Tiger, F-16 sloop, 2 F-16 cat, Taipan 5.7.

All cats showed good pace with the F-16 sloop, Tiger and Taipan 5.7 dicing closely with the 18 Skiffs with the 2 A's not far behind.  Would like to get the Tornadoes, Super Taipan and the gun F18 guys there next year to realy ruffle some feathers.
