125 Nationals Update!
How is the interest in the Adelaide Nationals from outside WA? At this stage about 11 boats are confirmed from Perth with a few more likely from Esperance ... so hopefully around 15 boats will be the WA contingent - not too bad considering it's a 2700km drive! just to set the record straight: Adelaide is 2100km from Brisbane, 1500km from Sunshine, and 720km from Melbourne.

At present we are expecting around 10 boats will be sailing from Victoria. The actual boats and numbers are varying a bit as boats are built and family commitments are sorted out.

Re: 125 Nationals Update!
Chris is right, there is a very fast yellow boat coming to the nationals, but it is not being sailed by you know who. Keeping it a surprize, but the word is this old sailor is very competitive and has surprize everyone at his club with the speed he has gotten out of this clone of the Tupper-cow. Also, past National Champ Jim Scott is in the finishing stages of a new boat. I think this years nationals will be one of the most competitive titles for many years. Absolutely no one will be a stand out, and if the queenslanders and sandgroopers are to form this is going to be a battle to the last race. Can't wait!
