Degrees of Freedom

 

This modern offshore cruiser/racer, designed and built in WA, is one of two entries from that State.  It will join the fleet as part of its circumnavigation of Australia that began in June last year with the Fremantle to Darwin ‘Splash’.  The boat has competed in a number of offshore events but is yet to tackle a Bass Strait crossing.
