For those of you who have lusted after your own miniature version of the RL Challenge Trophy, you'll have to be content with something less than something hand-crafted by Rob himself as the supply has been exhausted. The individual trophy will be a completely different style this year but the honour of getting your name on the main trophy is no less.
If you don't know what I'm on about, have a look at the Bay to Bay section of this web site.
The competition will be fierce again this year. Although Steve North will be back i action again this year, he'll have to start from scratch PBH wise as he's campaigning a new boat.
If you haven't tackled the Bay to Bay before, be prepared for a 3 year campaign to get your PBH at around the right level. And in doing so, you'll see why there are quite a few RL's with 10 or more races under their belt. It seems to seep into your blood. Nearly 3 weeks out and I can feel the adrenalin pumping already.
What do you call a Scratch PBH???
Goagain hasn't been in the water for the past 3 month's
and iv'e only sailed her a few times since i got her so i was thinking somewhere around 0.666 would be a fair PBH to start on?? LOL.
Looking forward to a good sail and catching up with all the RL owners up there again. See you there.
Col could just take the easy way out and give you the same PBH as "Go For It". Was it .738?
He'll more likely be kind and start you at .725.
Enjoy. You never know, with "Sly Fox" on domestic duties you may be in with a chance.
Just remember to cover "Chill Ouat"
