What an Australia Day Weekend, starting in Melbourne and heading over the Geelong on the 175th Rex Gorell Land Rover Festival of Sails Passage Race with Rolex Sydney Hobart winners, Ichi Ban, and then two days of covering over 300 boats racing on Corio Bay and outside the channel from the Royal Geelong Yacht Club!
Great to bring so many of adventures to you thanks to Pantaenius Sail & Motor Yacht Insurance.
Personally, it was my pleasure to be the MC for the event for the second year running, and will be one for the memory banks having been involved with the 175th! Congratulations to all of the organisers, volunteers and competitors (especially the winners) for supporting the event, and hopefully it is bigger and better next year!

On board Ichi Ban – the breeze is here and we are ripping along at 11 knots. Crew disappointed that Harry Bethwaite is sometimes below 100% polars #banter
