Many of us have enjoyed racing in the warmer climate of north Queensland at Airlie Beach Race Week (ABRW) and Hamilton Island Race Week (HIRW) but most of us have taken the option of flying there and back. Not so Christine S77 and her crew.
Congratulations to Christine S77 who has just completed her first Airlie Beach Race Week having sailed up there from Melbourne. Her results at ABRW – first in Cruising Division 1.
She is now competing in Hamilton Island Race Week. Details can be found on her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ChristineYachting so you can follow her progress.
Owner/Skipper Paul Bunn and his partner Lynne Wilton are graduates from the ORCV’s 2014 Beyond the Bay programme. ORCV’s Noel May and Neville Rose have been mentoring them since then and arranged for very experienced offshore sailors to be on board for each of the delivery legs.
