With many, many thanks to the Australian Sailing Team, and the delightful members of the Coffs Harbour Yacht Club, we are delighted to bring you these images.

After such a long hiatus ashore, not only was it great to catch up with superstars like Mat Belcher, Will Ryan, Jake Lilley and Matt Wearn, but also the squad members who make the team so strong. It is also an utter privilege to be with coaches like Iain Murray, Victor Kovalenko, Michael Balckburn and Rafael Trujillo.

Even the Humpback whales were happy to see everyone, so we thank them, along with the rays, dolphins and turtles that frequent the marina as well…
