This week the team will be racing in the newly launched Sunseeker Australia Cup. The regatta will be sailed on both Matilda Bay and Perth Water in front of Barrack Street Jetty and the Perth CBD. This will provide some fabulous viewing opportunities for spectators to view world class match race sailing.
The regatta plays host to an incredible international field with the top five match racing sailors taking part along side Americas Cup teams and the best young up and coming talent.
It will be great to have our full team in Perth for the regatta with bowman Nick Bastow and pitman Jakob Gustafsson flying in from overseas for the event. The team will train for two days prior to the event to refresh our techniques on the Foundation 36 yachts.
Black Swan Racing team for Sunseeker Australia Cup:
Keith Swinton (AUS)
Doug Cooksey (AUS)
Jesper "Fang" Warren (AUS)
Jakob Gustafsson (SWE)
Nick Bastow (NZL)
Racing begins on Thursday and we encourage everyone to come down and take a look. Our friends at Mirsky Racing Team are running a floating bar off the western side of Barrack Street Jetty which will offer drinks and a good viewing platform of racing in Perth Water so this is a good option if you don't have access to a boat.
