Dozens of racing and cruising yachts from all over Australia will compete in the 61st Lexus Adelaide to Port Lincoln yacht race on 18 February 2011. The 156 nautical mile journey will finish in beautiful Port Lincoln, home to some of Australia’s premier cruising waters.
“We’re expecting at least five of the Sydney to Hobart contenders, including local boats Secret Men’s Business and Too True, as well as Victorian boats Scarlet Runner, Calm and Reverie,” said Event Chairman Steve Kemp.
Following the race, the 2011 Lexus Lincoln Regatta from 21 to 24 February promises stunning flat water racing in Boston Bay and an opportunity to sample local produce.
“The Regatta offers a host of wonderful on-shore festivities which make the most of Port Lincoln’s famous seafood and wine industries,” Mr Kemp said.
Renowned sailor, journalist and author of the international bestseller Fatal Storm, Rob Mundle, will be a special guest at this year’s Lexus Lincoln Regatta. Over the span of his career, Mr Mundle has reported on seven America’s Cups, four Olympics and dozens of Sydney to Hobarts.
