Another Regatta! ... On Freeloader
07 January 2013 | Rockingham, Western Australia
Holidaying in Perth (via 777) we were invited to crew on one of the 4 day races that make up the Cockburn Regatta, hosted by the Cruising Yacht Club of W.A., in Rockingham. The boat was an Adams 40 called Freeloader and belonged to neighbours of GT's mum. We 5 crew - of whom 3 were over 60 - did very well in the 30 mile race with 40 degree heat (and no bimini!) and ended up pulling off a first place, so a good day was had all around. Hard to beat the blue skies and steady sea winds of a Perth summer!
