Walk on the Wild Side in Saturday’s start to the Bali Race Bernie Kaaks
In the Fremantle to Bali Race, the Inglis 58 Walk on the Wild Side has retired with a broken mast.

Skipper Garth Curran reported the retirement to race control at about 7pm and confirmed immediately that there was no injury to any crew and that the yacht itself is undamaged, approximately 40 nautical miles north of Carnarvon. It will make its way to Carnarvon under motor and is expected to arrive in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The breakage occurred soon after the fleet was hit by a severe frontal system.
