Windsong of Mornington

Another first time Rolex Sydney Hobart entrant and one of the strong fleet of Victorian boats competing in Australia’s premier ocean race this year.  Windsong of Mornington’s best result came in last year’s Melbourne - Launceston Race where she picked up a first in PHD division.

Two father and son teams, owner Jim Watson and son Damian, and Graeme Pimlott and son Scott, will sail south aboard this heavy cruising boat with the emphasis on comfort and style rather than speed.
