[Translate] Well, I’ve just had a big day up at Duck Flat Wooden Boats doing some work on the 3 PDRacers they are building for the nationals at Goolwa in March. I’m not the only person working on them. Robin Badenoch has been in and more or less finished the masts and is on his […]
[Translate] This photo series below is for the OzRacer Mk 2. The method for the OzRacer RV and OzGoose is much simpler. The OzGoose is the 12ft version that appeared somewhat later. It is a much better boat in terms of speed and capacity. At the moment I am in Sydney for a couple of […]

Note the neat and very lightweight seat made of a washing line. It is important when drilling the holes […]

The original, slightly more performance oriented version the Mk2 for solo sailors with occasional crew (photo right) and the OzRacer RV with more space in the cockpit. Finally we have the OZ Racer site up […]
[Translate] This is Michael Storer heading to places where thousands of men and women and pussycats have preceded him.
