The Flagstaff Hill Maritime Precinct (www.flagstaffhill.com) at Warrnambool organises the Australian Racing Championships for whaleboats. Now a group from the same town has formed the Warrnambool St Ayles Skiff Club and intend coming down for our regatta in February. They write :
'Warrnambool are hoping to attend as a crew or part thereof and at best with a boat in tow. Very aspirational at this point given we have just launched our crowdfunding campaign on the Pozible website. We have several grant applications in the pipeline and this Pozible ( http://www.pozible.com/project/185000 ) project concludes on Oct 3 which is effectively when we hope to order our first kit. With a 2 week delivery time that would best see a kit on the ground in Warrnambool at end Oct or early Nov. So who knows if we can build and be ready for Tas events in Feb.'Those with a spare dollar might like to slip over to that Pozible page.
