NSW states - boat available?
Dear 125ers,
a couple of us DAC laser sailors are interested in sailing a 125 at the NSW states. We are asking if anyone knows of a good boat that would be able to be made available for the series.
If there was a good boat which was otherwise not going to sail, we could help with transport if it's within a couple of hours from Sydney.

As well as the lasers, we have each done a fair bit of sailing in two person dinghies (420 in one case, FD the other), so we (think we) know what we are doing (a bit). We've sailed with the 125s around DAC, and been impressed with the boats, so would like to give one a go. (Particularly if we could do it in a boat which would give us a fighting chance of being competitive if it were sailed well.)

Any suggestions?

Re: NSW states - boat available?
is that boat for sale or sail? Just to clarify, we are not in a position to buy a boat at present, but looking to borrow/charter just for the series.

Sorry thats sale, there's no edit function on this forum so I couldn't change it. I can't think of any competitive 125's currently laying around, they are in reasonably high demand.
