Boatbuilding Boys Make Progress on GTR8800

Troy Smith and partner Brad have been making astonishingly fast progress on their Growler GTR8800 project in Sydney, NSW. Troy's parents Ian and Rhonda have been an integral part of the build team with the project being constructed in Ian's business premises, and there has been assistance from other family and friends. Amazingly this project is only part time, with Troy and Brad putting in hours whenever possible.

A blog has been started, following their build journey with fantastic images for anyone considering a build themselves or wanting more information. You can view their blog here, or see some of their progress in the GTR8800 photo gallery.

Schionning Trifecta in Surf 2 City 2016

Congratulations to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in the Surf 2 City Yacht Race (Offshore Multihull OMR Division) 'MOJO', 'Renaissance' and 'Attitude' respectively! G-Force 1500 'MOJO' really shone with 1st place on Line Honors, OMR and PHRF, not to mention 1st OMR in the Pittwater to Coffs and 1st PHRF in the Sail Paradise Regatta. The City 2 Surf Yacht Race 2016 saw some tough conditions and many retired vessels, but with over 100 entries there was a strong fleet at the finish.

A superb effort by all of the skippers and crews who spend so much time and effort getting to and from the regattas, as well as keeping the boats in racing order - what a fantastic strong multihull racing community we have in Australia. See the results here, or get some information and join the fun next year!
