Inspired by the historic impact of the America's Cup win in 1983 by the crew and syndicate of the Australia II, we explore the sport of competitive sailing.

The Royal Perth Yacht Club in WA became the official home of the America's Cup for the intervening period from 1983 until 1987 when Fremantle hosted the America's Cup defence race. This was the first non-American hosts of this coveted sporting trophy.

This seminar series will focus on the broad community of sporting people who have grinded, trimmed and hoisted their way to success on board yachts in Australian waters, and those who have been inspired to become part of the business of yachting; the syndicates who have mounted and financed these sporting challenges. 

Dive in and join a series of speakers discussing the challenges and changes emerging in the sport of sailing through the last 40 years.
