Sail Mooloolaba 2014 is now open for business with the notice of race and on line entry now available. This year, Sail Mooloolaba has started on its way to becoming the premier multi discipline sailing event, if not the only multi discipline sailing event.

Sail Mooloolaba is an event not a regatta with six regattas within the one event over five weeks. From radio controlled yachts to sports boats, from laser dinghies to IRC thoroughbreds, and from cruising multihulls to match racing. All being run from the Mooloolaba Yacht Club and the Wharf Tavern. In fact you will be able to sit on the deck at the Tavern and watch the match racing, radio controlled yachts and some dinghy divisions over the course of the event.

Over fifty sports boats racing off the beaches of Mooloolaba over three days.

The Yachting Queensland IRC QLD Titles will held as part of Sail Mooloolaba for the first time over the weekend of the 28-29 June bringing the cream of the blue water racing machines to Mooloolaba.

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
