As 2015 started many people were on holidays or taking it a bit slower than normal at work. Not the DeckHardware team! I was getting ready to head down to the Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club in preparation for the Moth Worlds. With being so busy organising the Sydney Sailboat Expo I could only afford to be there for just a few days. The main reason for going is we support so many Moth sailors. The thing with the Moth fleet is that they aren’t just Moth Sailors! So many of them we actually sponsor in other classes and of course also support them in the amazing Moth fleet. Which is seeing some incredible developments in Technology along with being a class the so many of the Worlds Best Sailors are sailing.
So down I headed on the drive with a boot full of Liros Rope and PROtect Tapes in particular. What the Moth fleet love! I also had a bunch of stickers as I knew many of them would have new sails, boats or equipment needing new stickers! I also knew some of the sailors we sponsor were in need of new mainsheets but just had not had the time to arrange it yet. So this way I ensured that everyone we support was ready to go as much as we at DeckHardware could support them! I stayed for a few days knowing some of the guys would not think of things till after I left. As it was on the last day a couple of them realised they needed new stickers! I managed to stay long enough to watch the Bangin the Corners Cup which was some fantastic action. I can’t wait to see it online in the near future once Beau Outteridge Productions wraps his Worlds videos. It really was a who’s who lineup!
Thanks to all who’ve put our different brands stickers on their boats. Especially those who put several! And especially the big Liros ones which look great! It’s greatly appreciated. I really wish I could have stayed longer to watch some of the racing. I left the first day of the Australian Championships and it was HOT HOT HOT and extremely frustrating as there was NO breeze. Massive thanks to my hosts Sam and Carl who I did not see much of due to spending so much time at the club! I am loving following all the action and really wish I could be there to watch some of the best sailors the world has to offer in action however the Sydney Sailboat Expo is now just 95 days to go! I better get some work done! Sailing – It’s not just a sport, it’s a lifestyle.
