Indented Heads VLA Camp

Over the weekend I was coaching down at the VLA coaching camp. The Victoria Laser Association were down at Indented Heads for a two day intensive camp.

Sydney to Hobart ‘Team Wicked’

It has been an exciting month of sailing onboard team Wicked from Sandringham Yacht Club.

It's more like a roller coast ride on the way to the start line then in the race.  We started in early December with the boats delivery to Sydney from Melbourne- it was a fun trip around the far Eastern corner of Victoria where we were hit with a fun 40knots & hit a new boat speed record for a Beneteau 40 going 21knots!! We then motored 18hours straight...
