We will be looking for charters for 2012 na's. If the currency is Bundi we should be able to take out the market.
But before that, is there interest in chartering some boats for the 2012 NA's to some AUS sailors?
Any suggestions/offers welcome.

We'll be making a list in the next few months of all boats in the area and seeing who will be doing the NAs and which boats may be available due to conflicts, etc.  Also, with U.S. Viper manufacturing ramped up by that time, there may be more flexibility on charter availability via that route.  Plan to sail -- you guys seem to have called first dibs on charters so we'll make it work.

Thanks Peter.
I will stay tuned and tell the others here to plan to sail.

There may be interest in a third boat. I will test the interest now we have dates and enough sailing days to have a good crack.

Peter. I've been speaking to many Left Coasters that want to sail the NA's. Push comes to shove, I can put three boats on our double and another on top of Ezra's rig but I feel confident that if you find 4 extra boats laying about, we will send 12 sailors east to complete. Will try to get our best in the cue including Winnard who is our version of Boston.

Plese keep us (me) in the loop on this.

Boston, Winnard, Carroll, Jay, Mauri, Taselaar, etc etc........

Mambo Kings thinks zis could be one tough North Americans.

+ None of us have ever gone up against these Aussies. Rumors from down under are that they are quite handy in breeze. Might have to poison them with American beer.

Aussy Viper owners should get priority on charters. 

Anyone know if Locke/Chapman/Nicholson will be back? I was saw the boat was up for sale, but then I heard that if he sells it will be to get a new BSB boat. Hope they are there again.
