A chat with the Skipper.
Festival of Sails: What has been your best memory/achievement sailing on this boat?
Fleurieu Warrior: Winning the Mc.Alister cup then trying to sail home in the dark against a 40kt storm. We dialed 000 and were rescued off Werribee Sth by the coast guard.
FS: What do you love most about your boat?
FW: It so easily converts from a comfortable cruising yacht to a very competitive racer. Not too big so I can sail her single handed but large enough to have an ideal crew size of 5 pob
FS: How many times have you sailed in FOS?
FW: At FOS, about 8 times.
Fleurieu Warrior is a Noelex 30, competing in the Cruising with Spinnakers division.
