Nautor’s Swan 80 - winners again .. .
Nautor’s Swan has again shown it mettle by winning the 'Best Production Sailing Yacht' in the Asia Boating Awards.

Nautor’s Swan has successfully fought off serious global competition this week to win the ‘Asia Boating Award 2011 for Best Production Sailing Yacht’. The Asia Boating Awards are the region’s most established and respected event of its kind which annually receives entries from the world’s leading yacht manufacturers.


Nautor’s Swan attracted the attention of the boating awards, now in its seventh year, with a nomination of the Swan 80 into the highly competitive ‘Best Production Sailing Yacht 51 feet and up’ category.

The Swan 80 was pitted against high profile yacht manufacturers from the USA, UK and Turkey including; Friendship Yacht Company, Oyster and Alia Yachts.

After a strict judging process by some of the most esteemed Asian and international marine industry experts, Nautor’s Swan went on to win the overall trophy for this category in an awards ceremony hosted in Hong Kong.

This is a very valuable design recognition for the Swan 80 model which brings a new level of look and performance to the Swan Line. An up to date expression of the fast Maxi-cruiser concept, the design uses forty years of accumulated knowledge with a fresh approach.

The south westerly breeze kicks over the land mass over north facing beach, making for flat water despite strong wind. Whatever the shortcomings of the Fremantle Doctor on the first day of competition, were made up for in spades on day two, when the wind kicked in early at 15 knots and quickly built to 18 with gusts as high as 26. The Rockingham course is perfectly suited to such conditions. The south westerly breeze kicks over the land mass over the north facing beach, making for flat water despite strong wind.

Oh no - not the coffee cup Oh no - not the coffee cup - Jon keeps us all entertained as he approaches Reunion Island. The B&G chartplotter tells me since leaving the pleasant mid Western Australian town of Carnarvon (by world standards, an isolated town), that I have sailed some 2559 NM and have 751nm to go to Le Port Reunion Island. French. Reunion is a Suburb (department) of Paris. Population 844,000.

This is day 13 since leaving the mid Western Australian town of Carnarvon. Remote region. Beautiful town. This is day 13 since leaving the mid Western Australian town of Carnarvon. Remote region. Beautiful town. Kept cooler by the strong south winds, which make the trees bend and grow to the north. Carnarvon is nice, especially the months of September, October, November, and December. The wind is strong. Often near gale strength, with squalls and blue skies.
