Southern Cross Cup heads to Sydney for round three

Southern Cross Cup heads to Sydney for round three

15 Nov 2013

The TP52 Southern Cross Cup is shifting to Sydney for the second half of the inaugural four-round competition that has rejuvenated the class in the Southern Hemisphere.

Round 3 of the series, hosted by the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron at Kirribilli, will add plenty of sizzle to the harbour city’s spring sailing program over the three-day weekend, November 22nd - 24th.

The Sydney turnout will be quite different to the fleet that was in the Melbourne starting stalls.

Rob Date’s Scarlet Runner is in the Northern Hemisphere taking on many of the world’s signature ocean races and regattas while a couple of the Melbourne based TPs have left the competition. A stronger NSW contingent and second international entry comprise the handful of newcomers.  

Owner of the New Zealand TP52 Vamos (formerly Shogun 2), Connel McLaren, is set to line up against his Kiwi countrymen on the Hong Kong based Team Beau Geste. Chinese businessman and skipper Karl Kwok and his mostly New Zealand crew, including trusty helmsman Gavin Brady, scored back-to-back wins with Team Beau Geste on Port Phillip in February and March, and hold a commanding pointscore advantage.

During the recent America’s Cup showdown in San Francisco many Aussies were gunning for their South Pacific neighbours. For the remainder of the inaugural TP52 series, like for any high profile Trans-Tasman sporting contest neighbourly relations rank second.
