Back from the Avalon Air Show 2007

Though I am mostly concerned with boats it doesn’t mean I don’t have a strong interest in other fields – specially ones as highly related as aircraft design and performance.

I’m just back from the Avalon airshow in Victoria. It’s the biggest airshow in Australia.

The highlight for me was watching how all the hard headed types that were there to watch things go fast and hear a lot of noise go dead quiet and display total attention as a sailplane did an almost silent routine of airobatics.

The elegance of a single leaf blowing in the wind – just stunning.

I have put my pics of the event up on Flickr – I am a bit more focussed in details and images I find interesting rather than just documenting the show.

Hope you enjoy some of the things I enjoyed.

I’ll get round to writing some comments shortly

On the "round Australia trip" I found myself employed by a tiny business in Adelaide - Duck Flat Wooden Boats in Adelaide.It was an eye opener - It became clear that one could build a boat for a fraction of the cost of current racing boats.My ideas hinged around high performance, easy building, fun to sail and reasonably cheapToday Storer Boats are built in all countries and we have active groups on Facebook for the following groupsGoat Island Skiff Open Goose Storer Boat plans Really Simple Sails
