The Australian Farr 40 Owners Group would like to invite all Farr 40 owners to take part in the 2011 Rolex Farr 40 World Championship.
2011 will see the 14th Rolex Farr 40 World Championship return to Sydney, Australia and will be held February 23-26.
Sydney hosted the 2005 Rolex Farr 40 Worlds which was won by local sailor Richard Perini and his team Evolution. 28 boats raced on the race course located outside Sydney heads on the race course known as the Macquarie Circle which is where the 2011 racing will take place and the 2011 Rolex Farr 40 World Champion will be crowned.
Everyone will be able to enjoy fantastic racing and hospitality which Sydney is renowned for. While in Sydney we hope everyone can enjoy all that Sydney and the surrounding area has to offer.
Team supporters, family and friends can enjoy the racing or spend time exploring Sydney or maybe the vineyards in the Hunter Valley, the Blue Mountains or the Southern Highlands all within a two hour drive from downtown Sydney. The laid-back outdoor lifestyle and natural beauty make Sydney a great city to visit.
