Any Windrider 17 owners in Vitoria Australia
« on: December 26, 2016, 07:38:33 AM »
Was wondering if there are any other Windrider 17 owners sailing on Port Philip Bay. Have many interested spectators watch when I launch who seem to know about our Windriders but do not see any sailing other than mine.

Karl not sure. Since we have owned the company we have shipped around 40 boats to Australia, but don't know where they have ended up. We are looking for a new dealer in the Melbourne or Sydney area if you know anyone that maybe interested.

Can you give me more info on what is required of a dealer. I know you had someone in Queensland. Melbourne is different as we have a colder climate so sailing is not all year round, but Melbourne has many sailing & yachting clubs around Port Philip bay & Western Port. Within a radius of 20min from us are 5 Sailing Clubs, I would think there would be a lot of interest if viewed at the annual Melbourne boat show.
Was sailing in autumn this year off Dromana and had many interested in the Windrider. Had bad winds over winter & spring so have just finished repainting my decking so I can sail again. I'm very impressed how the Windrider 17 can provide safety when you get hit with a sudden freak 40 plus wind & you don't have time to reef. If you want to contact me on my email it is kcamden-burch@outlook.com.
