Even though I was only crew (and a poor one at that) this year I answered the survey. As this year was my 21st appearance ( and 21 finishes) in the race going back to the days when 600 or more boats competed I believed I had something to add. I believe the current format where the slower boats go straight to Paynesville and the faster ones circmnavigate R.I. is a good mix. If the weather calls for a shortened coarse the faster boats can finish straight into Paynesville as well. This works because most bad stuff comes from the South West so we virtually get blown into Pville anyway. My first time was in 1976 and the Hartley 16 had to leave the Tambo Bluff light to port and the Finish was up Mcmillan Straight past the Motor Hotel (now gone)and the Ferry at the Gippsland Lakes Club. It was a hard slog. Todays courses are a good mix of adventure and sailing for all.
