A beautiful start was held off Port Beach in North Fremantle.
Yachts sailed past the flotilla of power yachts which included the classics Avonita, Winnilya, Spray and Hiawatha. Lady Cooinda hosted our race special guests.
There were many vessels out on the water to see off the fleet.
Three vintage planes joined in overhead to watch the start of the race and added to the amazing atmosphere. Especially as they buzzed past when the race began.
As the fleet raced to the day buoy, spectator boats followed and saw them off in to the sunset. Yachts raced west to a beacon near Rottnest Island before turning south for Bunbury.
