RL24s are Australian Trailerable Yacht Champions for 2008

It was very exciting - 5 RL24's contested the series -
Whatever(Darren Dyer)- Swing Keel was winner in Div. 1
Ohau Rua (Simon Walsh) - Drop Keel was winner in Div. 2.

They won over other classes of boats such as Magnums, Noelexs, Farrs, Elliots etc. The five boats entered were: (Click to enlarge)

Congratulations to both Simon Walsh and Darryn Dyer and their crews in winning at the Australian Trailer Yacht Championships. Thank you to all the other RL 24 who represented the RL 24 class at the TY National titles. Just like the old days the RL 24 class had the ‘mostest’ number of boats in the event!

I am a happy chappie too as I have searched through ever piece of documention in the 'Skandia Geelong' website and the dreaded letters ‘CBH’ do not appear! Plenty of IRC, AMS, YV, PH and EHC but no CBH. What does EHC mean? Did you race under the 2007 National Trailer Yacht and Sports Boat Rules?

I am telling you that Trailer Yachts need a new totally computerised VPP system of handicapping.

Thank you Jane and Keith for the lovely input to this forum. I really enjoyed clicking on the photo and having a close look at the layout on the boats.
