One of Australia's leading clubs, the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, has purchased a Fareast 28R for their exciting, new sailing program.

"The Fareast 28R joins our fleet of Elliott 6s to provide a natural progression into keelboat racing and cruising for our academy participants and Sail Our Boats members," says Business Development Manager Ben Brearley from RQYS.

The program has received sensational support and interest from members and visitors alike, with the recent RQYS Open Day attracting over 80 registrations for the Sail Our Boats packaged program.

Another club to gear up with Fareast Yachts is NT based Gove Boat Club. They decided to build an instant fleet by ordering 4 of the brand new designed Fareast 19R's. The boats will be supplied with different colour A-sym kites making it easy and fun for spectators to see which team is leading.

Contact the clubs for more info or explore the exciting Fareast Yachts on www.FarEastYachts.com.au
