    I'm an aussie laser 2 sailor. I rarely sail laser 1s anymore cause I don't go sailing with the uni club much now (they have lasers).

    Usually I race a 125.

    I'm in Queensland.

    cool!! ummm.. i was wondering.. is there a uni in queensland offering physio? I really wanted to try some uni's in the eastern states (i'm from the west side ;) ) but i wasn't sure what they're like. Are they any good? (They're probably better than the ones here on a global scale..).

    I think most uni's here offer physio. I know that my uni (University of Queensland) does. I don't know what the course is like, but UQ seems like a good uni.

    Just look up the websites for the unis here and it should tell you about the course. Try:
    University of Queensland,
    Queensland University of Technology
    Griffith Uni
    Central Queensland Uni
    Uni of Southern Queensland
    Australian Catholic Uni.

    I think that's about it for the state of Qld.

    Where abouts is Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club? I came to WA at the end of last year for the 125 Nationals - we sailed on the Swan River.

    I'd love to but don't have the time and money to get me and my boat down there. I'm sure it would a great venue and top class event. It crosses over with the arrival of the Sydney to Hobart fleet as well. That city is going to be in a sailing frenzy! :D :D :D

    No, I can't. I'm going to the 125 Nationals in Victoria so I won't have the money.

    Good to see that there are so many Aussie's here.

    Has anyone ever sailed at Gippsland Lakes in Victoria? What's it like - weatherwise, conditions for sailing etc?

    Aussie ex-sailor here, in the process of catching the bug again... I seem a bit older and fatter than most in here, as I've never sailed Radials (they were the coming thing as I was gaining weight) and never even seen a 4.7... had an M-rig for a season or two in my early teens... have informed the wife that the five year plan is a new boat and a fair bit of use for it... now which of the kids should I sell to finance the dream?

    Well, I'm soon to be an aussie non-laser sailor as I have advertised my boat for sale.

    I'll still be around in the sailing circles, just in a different class of boat (as soon as my elbow gets better that is *rolls eyes at stupid repeated stress injury*).
