Hamilton Island 2007

The Escaped Aussies are returning home in 2007.

Hamilton Isalnd Regatta 18th - 25th August 2007 (with some lead up events the week before) will be the scene of a massive reunion.

The racing will be full-on with two matched boats. Forget the Waterford trophies on offer from the regatta - we'll be competing for the Bundy Cup.

Already more than a dozen people have expressed interest, with most of them sending deposits to secure their spots (we are limited to a maximum of 16).

Stay tuned for updates as the numbers grow and the details emerge about the extra curricular activities (including the charity event).

Windsor Cup, UK - September 2006

Some select shots from a great day out in typical Cowes conditions with EA veterans from the last Cowes tour....

Rainy and gusty conditions up to 39 Knots , a close encounter with a mamoth tanker that actually swung a massive course change to avoid a collision with us, a torn kite that floated around the hull of the boat, and a 5th overall out of 17 boats !!!
