European settlement is just a pimple on the bum of Australian History.

We should not let these cretins strip away our real heritage. We should not let our politicians take bribes from the mining industry.

If we do nothing, we'll be left with nothing.

So I had a weekend messing about on boats - some pics and videos I took for the +Brisbane 18 Footer's Sailing Club during the race and a few around the yard.

That's sailing.

The local lads on Tradelink (+Tradelink Plumbing Centres) had a shitter of a day on the Friday. Race 1, they had a halyard jam on the first spinnaker drop and had to capsize to get it down - they finished last. Race 2, while sailing really well in 5th place, they hit a sandbank and capsized, ended up last. To cap it off, on the way back in, they broke the boom.

They ended up winning on handicap. As the skipper said on Facebook, they could easily have thrown the toys out of the cot after the events on Friday.

Story
Tagline
a sailing nut with a working problem
Introduction
Loving hubby to Brooke and Dad to Ella and Jaspar, my next true love is sailing.  When I find spare time, I also enjoy photography (though I'm the equivalent of a weekend hacker in golf), embracing all things techie and getting involved with our sailing club's internet presence (+Brisbane 18 Footers, web page and Facebook pages) as well as virtual sailing with VSK Australia.

My online mantra is "attack the post and not the poster", and I don't feed trolls.  

Please don't be offended if I don't add you back or interract with you in G+ land, my time online is limited!

We've had our daughter here since she was 3/4 mths old. Staff are very friendly, centre has been upgraded since we started with a second pool and a cafe!

If you're looking for a big serving, look no further than the Coaldrake's bacon, egg, Swiss cheese and BBQ sauce melt on Turkish bread... omg so good! Their other melts are also pretty damn good. All of their sandwiches are made in the impossible small kitchen in one corner of the bookstore. They also offer rice paper rolls and of course cakes and cookies. There are a number of low tables outside and also some tables and chairs inside - much better option when the winter westerlies are blowing! They can get a little busy (due to the small kitchen the number of staff is necessarily limited!) but be patient.

Close by our work - we go there for the morning "happy hour" coffee ($3.50 large/$2.50 small). It's pretty much just a "hole in the wall" type of cafe with a few chairs and tables available, we always just get takeaways. Reasonable range of sandwiches, wraps, foccacias and salads, with their "loyalty card" extending to these as well as the coffees.
