Last year the ‘King of Smile’ Clinton Hood from Cronulla came and took away the SA Sate title (well he had some help from Dougie Watson’s boat), this year looks like a warm up for the VIC Titles as a solid 4 or 5 boats look like making the trip across the little desert (there is a LD pub out there on the road, worth a stop too). Will a VIC boat do the same thing this year?
Bet the SA fleet want the trophy back !
Jim Townsend the SA President (the ‘nothing is too much trouble’ man) is still the man to talk to regarding the SA States with all the info you could want to know about getting there, getting it done and getting out of town without too bigga hangover !
CYCSA is once again the venue. If you haven’t been to the CYC over there, you are missing out on a friendly little club with a great marina and lots of cold beer and SA wine and food – they always do it so well – on and off the water.
