Rumba Deliveries

Hamilton Is to Sydney August 2019

Mooloolaba to Sydney December 2015

Pt Stephens April 2014

Coffs to Sydney August 2013


Unfortunately the Sydney to Southport race this year suffered very light conditions. As a result many of the smaller yachts (Rumba included) retired due to “time constraints”. So our delivery start was altered from the Gold Coast to Coffs. John and I enjoyed the varied conditions which ranged from no wind to gusts of 35kts in Stockton Bight but arrived safely back at MHYC in 2 days. Thank you John for your tremendous help crewing.


After a great Easter regatta, again John and I brought her safely back to MHYC


First time for Rumba at Hammo race week. Unfortunately problems meant the crew had to leave her at Kepple Bay for repairs and Kerry got as far as Mooloolaba before needing my assistance for the remainder of the delivery. Great sailing with you Kerry – till next time.


The mighty Rumba team again headed north to enjoy Hamilton Is Race Week. Well worth it this time with great sailing and a nice collection of glassware with a second overall.

A great delivery home with ideal conditions, and Jeff (the original builder) and Ray assisting. We also picked up Alex a Coffs aviation fireman who contacted me looking to build sea miles.
