With a backdrop of dark rain clouds, the fleet raced downwind from Lindeman Island to the finish in Dent Passage getting a good soaking shortly after the video was shot. Published August 22, 2016
Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2016 - Day 1:
Day 1 of Audi Hamilton Race Week 2016 provided the first opportunity for Wild Oats XI and Scallywag to go head-to-head on an inshore race course. The two boats shadowed each other in the pre-race manoeuvres prior to the start of a race to Lindeman Island and back, starting in Dent Passage. Both boats made a fine spectacle as they reached to the northern tip of Dent Island before heading upwind to Lindeman Island. Dale Lorimer of Bow Caddy was on the water and recorded this brief cameo of the start line encounter between the two super maxis.
