at HMAS Albatross roared into
action to capture the lion's share of
the trophies at the annual Carr Cup

LCDR Foss by winning 6 sets to 4.
LEUT Wadey's triumph con-
signed LCDR 'Tricky' Foss to
the history books as an eight-time
runner-up in the Carr Cup Men's

their rivalry behind them when they

The victory by the duo from the
'Tiger Sqn' allowed LCDR Foss to
establish a dynasty as an eight-time

enthusiasm for sailing with a flying
visit to Canberra to compete in the ACT
Dinghy Championships on November
Arriving in Sydney on the Friday
afternoon aboard HMAS Manoora,
MIDN Bacon drove to Canberra, com-
peted in six Tasar races over the two days
and returned to Sydney to sail on board
HMAS Kanimbla on the Monday morn-
ing.Four boats represented the RAN
on Lake Burley Griffin, racing in wind
strengths ranging from two to 28 knots.
The final two races were cancelled
when even stronger winds made condi-
tions too rough.
MIDN Bacon and skipper LEUT
Andrew Foulkes finished sixth overall
with PO Darryl Bentley seventh, CDRE
Rick Longbottom third, and myself sec-
ond in the small but strong fleet.
A fortnight earlier I represented Navy
Sailing at the Bethwaite Skiff Series
Regatta, and raced from the Belmont
16-foot Skiff Sailing Club on Lake
Macquarie. Despite suffering a broken
top mast while leading the last race, I
won the regatta's Tasar division.
