Tales from the Sydney Hobart

Lindsay May, one of Australia’s foremost navigators, will recount his experiences competing in over 40 Hobarts at the next Cruising Division meeting on 27 April. 
 
"We were on our way home when we heard that Quinn had been washed off his yacht Mem, after the stitching on his safety harness came apart when the boat was hit by a huge wave. We went back to help look for him and nearly ran over him."
 
May’s first Hobart role was in 1973. In 1975 he was so desperate for another that he declared: "I’ll even go as navigator," and the die was cast. This is just one of many tales to be heard at the meeting!
 
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of racing’s legendary figures.
