Melbourne to Apollo Bay (M2AB) 14/05/11
This is the last race of the season. Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions will be available when the headline changes.
Many moons ago (OK. Many, many), this was how 'Supertramp' made her grand entrance over the bombora at the entrance to Apollo Bay. Don't worry. It looks worse than it really was and all the safety procedures, like storm boards etc, were already completed. This image was take by John Giest off Ruthless, who were already in the harbour. Geoff Henderson's Rumbeat came in after Supertramp and then the Harbour Master closed the port. If the swell is running, you'll return straight home, so don't think it is some weird initiation ritual...
What a perfect way to finish the season - compulsory inclusion in the Dash Back Series!
