The Wild Oats AC 45 arks it up - Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2014 Crosbie Lorimer
There was a colourful start to today's racing with the majority of the fleet heading north under spinnaker from the start line off the yacht club in Dent Passage.
Light breezes did not prevent the Wild Oats XI AC45 from flying hulls as she creamed across Whistunday Passage with the media boat sticking close to her tail. Crosbie Lorimer was amongst the photographers enjoying the ride!
