It's now the Great Ocean Road Sail Challenge
Not long after the start, saw an explosion of colour as yachts host their spinnakers in light northwesterly winds, crews applied sunscreen and popped on sunglasses to admire the shoreline of the Great Ocean Road, giving a beautiful photo opportunity to those driving along the Great Ocean Road today.
Late morning saw a change with a large number seem to be darting around looking for a "breath" of wind.
