Australia II: 40 Years On Gala Dinner


A Night to Remember!


What an enchanting evening it was at our Australia II: 40 years on Gala Dinner! From the dazzling gowns to the heartwarming conversations, we celebrated in style and with purpose.

Tuesday night’s Gala Dinner was a resounding success, a harmonious blend of glamour, camaraderie, and purpose.

The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the privilege of hearing the untold stories from the Australia II Team. These stories, like the ocean itself, ran deep and revealed the incredible journey of determination, innovation, and unyielding spirit that led to their historic victory in the 1983 America’s Cup. From their early challenges and setbacks to the triumphant moment when they brought the Cup home to Australia, every word resonated with passion and perseverance.

But it wasn’t just the tales of sporting triumph that left an indelible mark on us all; it was the reminder that the greatest victories are often born from the most arduous journeys. Their experiences echoed our shared belief that when we come together, unified by a common purpose, we can overcome any obstacle and achieve greatness.

Thank you to everyone who joined us, your presence made this night truly extraordinary.
