There will be 2 RB s on the water on Saturday and if anyone else wants to join in please do. Meeting 12-1230 at yacht club or if we decide just to cruise maybe somewhere else.
Dunno return trip might be on the cards.
Cheers Dave

Twilight sailing out of Bunbury Yacht Club on Wednesdays.
A young sailer there is waiting for his new BIC Techno to arrive so he can give us old boys a walloping!

Reply if interested for details.

Cheers Dave

There are a few new RB race boarders out just recently. So I'm here again to gauge interest for organised races with the Busselton Yacht Club for 2017-18 summer racing.
The idea is to bring RBs together and go around the bouys.
If there is enough interest then we could discuss actual racing.
We have some really capable talent (not me) on RBS available.
Also a jr sailor in Bunbury into racing BIC Techno. He just reviently got a board sent over and his dad also has a RB.

So so don't be shy, come down and have a sail with us in busselton.
Let me know cheers Dave

I would like to come to Busselton for raceboarding a couple of times over summer. I don't mind sailing around an official course or just launch off the beach and making our own course.

Just looking at the numbers, there have been plenty of people reading these updates, are you longboarders too? Maybe there are hundreds out there hiding their addiction.
Im sure that after a couple of outings on the water with like minded RB sailors we could get a series happening. Busso bunbury Mandurah & Perth locations.
Just thinkin aloud.
Love to hear some RB stories if anyone has something to tell.
Thanks for reading.
Dave

early discussions with SBYC have indicated they are keen to include a windsurfing fleet in their weekly racing next year.
Whether this is a continuation of the Slalom series or course racing in a mixed monohull fleet is yet to be established.
I will be encouraging any sailors who intend to race next season to look into SBYC memberships next Financial Year.

Great. That would be a good place to get some raceboards together. We should do a test event ASAP and see who turns up.

Have subscribed to your topic and will be keen to join whatever happens in Safety Bay / Perth once I get the board ready for use and get an SDM mast.

Hi Oldskool, weather in Busso is just coming good now, for the RB. Northerlies here make the water way too wild for big kit.
Ill be talking to the yacht club shortly about joining them on Sat arfternoons to go around the cans (anyone want to join me) and I'll keep updates here.
Great work with your Speed F1, awesome find.
Cheers Dave
