In Topic: Lexus Adelaide to Port Lincoln Bluewater Classic

Bump this one back up for this year's event....


2014 Adelaide to Port Lincoln race starts Friday Feb 21st with another good fleet assembled (42 boats last count) including two interstate participants: Wicked (Beneteau First 40 from Melbourne) and Zen (Sydney 38 from Sydney). Missing this year is regular interstate big boat Scarlet Runner who is on their world tour.


As a "bucket list" item, we on Wicked are looking forward to participating in the event that has been described by many as "great fun". A relatively short ocean passage race followed by a week of racing around Port Lincoln that includes a mixture of windward/leewards and island races sounds ideal. We are keen to lock horns again with fellow First 40's Two True and Concubine as well as the few Sydney 38's participating.  Will be interested to see the new SMB (Farr 400) in action.  Not being locals, its hard to pick the ones to watch but Shining Sea (ex Victoire) is in great form coming off their recent win (IRC2) at Geelong's Festival of Sails and will also be watching Aikin (Kerr 11.3), particularly if off the breeze.
