Farr 40 Nationals 2016 wraps up ahead of ‘Downunder’ Worlds

The Farr 40 Australia Nationals was an awesome event, showing a great resurgence for the class in Australia ahead of the Worlds which will be held out of the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron not this, but next week. Ten boats, tight racing and multiple heat winners made for three days of down to the wire racing.

Was great to catch up with the winning skipper, Guido Belgiorno-Nettis from Transfusion as the boat hit the dock, as well as the winning Corinthian, Jeff Carter of Edake, and World Farr 40 President, Martin Hill of Estate Master who slid into third behind Lang Walker’s Kokomo.

Full results

Enjoy, and stay tuned for plenty more adventures from ‘Downunder’!
