The Northern Circuit continues to grow in strength with Meriden Airlie Beach, Audi Race Week at Hamilton Island, and now the new Port Hinchinbrook Regatta and then Magnetic Island Race Week.

Hardy new for Port Hinchinbrook’s Keith William’s. He set the first Hamilton Island Regatta in motion in 1984.

Once upon a time there was nothing to do but park your boat at Abel Point Marina after Hamilton Island’s Race Week, until the trade winds eased in October before the delivery crew took the boat down south.

Now there are many more Great Barrier Reef adventures. Its clear that the overall numbers joining the north Circuit will continue to grow as these new events add more variety and places to discover. Down load the NOR’s and go adventuring!!!

Take a look at the new Tacktick jumbos – gosh when I think of all the grief from instrument wiring over the years – these are just must haves!!

The Flying Fifteens. A-Cats, the Med and Bob Fisher tells us about the America’s Cup specials in Valencia – look what he’s found for 30 Euro’s..Oh and he does talk about yacht racing.

Practice makes perfect?
