What a day it was this year for the Grinders Coffee SOLAS Big Boat Challenge!

We took on a whole new level of broadcasting, and while we did have a few intermissions brought to you by "Telstra" (in the words of David Turton) we still managed to put together a great day, with awesome commentary.

Check out the videos below in order to see what we got up to, and again a massive thanks to my team (you can read more about them here) on helm Martin Hill, on port trim David Turton, starboard trim Rob Brown, in the pit Fred Bestall and Vanessa, on the bow and strategy Greg Torpy, and on float (so mostly the bow!), Rob Douglass.

Our shore crew were made up of the amazing Pantaenius Sail & Motor Yacht Insurance for the third year running, Musto Australiasia, Harken, Hill PDA, Yoti and the Seabin Project.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and passion.
