The Lindsay river

If anyone is interested we spent 10 days going up the Murray River branched off into the Lindsay river. We launched at Customs House and left the trailer and car there , quite safe as when we got back I found I had forgot to lock the doors.

Sailing up the Murray River

Thought I would share our trip up the Murray River over the long week end. We went with the Trailer Sailor Association of South Australia. I tried my hand at making a Video of it. I apologise before you look at it, I made it so that family overseas could see it. We put in at Blanchtown and went as f...

We started out with an Austral 20, sailed off Adelaide quite a bit, and spent a few good weekends going up and down the Murray. Quite stable and a lot of fun in a wind. it is also comfortable as a weekender

Re: Ballooning up the Murray

Over the long weekend we went from Blanchtown to just below Morgen and some of the boats sailed the whole distance but motored back. When you balloon you don't want too much wind, they get a bit of steerage by going to different heights, when we took off we climbed until we were heading for the rive...

Having just had 4 days cursing up the Murray on the Queen’s birthday weekend I had the opportunity to balloon over the same part of the river. If you ever get the chance it is great

Re: Tow ball weight ?

Took my boat down to the local gardening service and put it on their weight bridge, 1940kgs on the cat and 2040 on the jockey wheel so +- 100 kg ball weight. That was empty so must be careful how I load it when traveling.

Re: Murray River, T.S cruising ???

We do the Murray in winter and use the Murray River pilot to navigate. There are plenty of places to dispose of the porta potty, never a problem. You don’t have to carry your rubbish for long. We have found that if you leave your rubbish bag out at night the water rats can be a bit of a problem so m...

It is just a base boat with the most basic fit out. Sails are old and damaged. Brakes on the trailer are shot and the 9.9 ...
