The team departed from The Spit from 2pm with the plan to get in early, find the perfect location with a view of the racecourse and anchor for a swim. However, the boys all forgot boardies and with the sun shining there was too much of a temptation for a swim. Lucky enough we had an idea…
After a quick stop off to watch these insane boats in tow from Cockatoo Island, the boys ducked into Burken Head Point, which is so easy to access by boat.
Then it was off for a quick dip before the race. We anchored close to shore near Milk Beach with a fantastic view of the start line. Fortunately for us, we had pro sailor Nicky Souter who use to umpire these events and was the best commentator.
Did you know every boat has to be identical? It really is all about the tactics and performance of the athletes. Congratulations to Team Australia for winning in home waters, what a sensational weekend of racing!

Andrew, was looking for “the perfect boat for entertaining family and friends on Sydney Harbour. A boat that was beautifully designed and constructed and at the same time very simple to operate… I love the elegant design of the boat and the quality of the build. It looks stunning.”
