A new top gun, Telefonica now Black Jack to make its Australian debut in the upcoming Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race.

Queenslander Mark Bradford will helm the Volvo 70 Black Jack which Peter Harburg purchased earlier this year. Previously raced as Telefonica in last year's Volvo Ocean Race (where she won the first three legs and finished fourth overall), Harburg had the boat shipped to Australia where it has undergone some modifications to bring her in line with Australian standards.

Australia's 49erFX and 49er crews have made their way to Denmark for the European Championships, with racing beginning in Aarhus on Tuesday, less than a week after the EUROSAF Champions Sailing Cup round in Kiel, Germany.

The Kiel event was a successful one for Australia's 49erFX crews with Olivia Price and Caitlin Elks winning silver and Tessa Parkinson and Chelsea Hall bronze, with Haylee Outteridge and Nina Curtis finishing just off the podium in fifth and Ella Giudice and Kate Lathouras ninth. All four crews will be in action in Denmark, with the event the first ever European Championship for the new women's 49erFX class.
