Good news after the midweek shock when there was no Australian team on the AC34 list. The paperwork hiccup has been overcome and it is hoped there will be an Australian AC45 team on the water later in the year.

The Northern Regatta season is coming up fast, good news from Meridien Marinas Airlie Beach Race Week, where entries are again ahead of last year with a strong Sports Boat fleet again. We will have more from Airlie Beach on Monday ...

NOW would be a good time to get your entry in. Further north, Magnetic Island Race Week is receiving a rapid entry flow, bigger than ever, this event has been extended by an extra day this year. Be there!!! its a blast.
