Kingurra to return’s to racing with the Port Phillip classics after her notable performances during the 50th Anniversary Regatta of the 1967 Admirals Cup where Australia’s reputation as an ocean racing nation began.
Ian McFarlane reported after sojurning at Pittwater for some weeks Kingurra left Sydney around 6:30pm Feb 6. On Weds Feb 7 Kingurra was flying down the coast at 9-10 over the ground with a good current assist of around 2 knots. Expected to be at Eden soon after Feb 7 midnight. It’s all go for the post card boat of the Admirals Cup 50th Anniversary Fleet to be racing racing with the Classic fleet next Sunday.
It is a beautiful sunny day on the NSW coast. Motor sailed from 3:30am til 9am in <10kn. Had a few hours of spinnaker run this morning as the breeze built Breeze now back to 20kn NE and doing 7 to 8 kn on course for Gabo Island. Nice to have a bit of current with us on the return journey.
