On 26 September 1983, Australia II shot to international sporting fame when the team won the oldest sporting trophy in the world, the America’s Cup. Claiming victory from the American team after 132 years, this triumph has been cemented in history.

Be treated to tunes from Perth’s premier yacht rock tribute band who celebrate a milestone ten years in the business! Take in the lights and sights of the Freo harbourfront as you dance the night away to the sounds of the era.

We have calm waters and smooth sailing forecast, so bring out your best retro 80s fashion and join the fun! Will you dress formal, nautical, rock, why not all?!
