The Oz Goose Nationals had 45 participants over the 2 days and 8 races. The most experience sailors came in first and second, but a relative newcomer to sailing slotted into third place.

The OzGoose 2016 plans are available. One plan with all the detail. There is a free upgrade for those who have already purchased the original Storer Boat Plans PDGoose or OzGoose Supplement from Duckworks.
I’ve finished drawing up the plans for the new all-in-one-document Oz Goose plans. Lots of work and sailing to optimise the boat. Available in the next few days.
Why the Goose makes sense for beginning sailors through to intermediate. And how it is fun for experienced sailors too. 12.9 knots measured top speed and plenty of time above 10, yet a docile boat that moves well with a family or instructor plus two students aboard.
My name is Mike Coleman. I am 37 years old. And, I live in Greenville, South Carolina. Always being one to seek out the next adventure, I found boat building and sailing a few months back I am building a Goose to sail in several events over the next two years.
