Georgia Racing


Georgia delivery starts

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

George Hendy and delivery crew – Tom Kearney, Ian Millar and Mike Boyd - have begun the long haul from Melbourne to Mackay in Queensland in readiness for the Hamilton Island regatta (Australian IRC Championships) in August.  After an uneventful sail through Bass Strait and a short stop at Eden to watch the Warriors beat the Rabbitohs, they have now reached Sydney (see photo) where some minor repair and servicing work will be undertaken and some accessories that have been stored will be loaded on the boat.

The current plan is to leave Sydney on Wednesday – weather permitting – on their way up the East Coast of Australia.  The boat will be left at Mackay and the last leg of the 1800 mile trip resumed shortly before the Regatta.

Other news:  GEORGIA crew member EMMA HENDY is engaged.  Congratulations to her and to proud parents, Jackie and George.
