Brisbane sailor David Rose, who won the inaugural Australian Winter Etchells regatta, back in 1997, did not have much luck in this year’s event, which was won by Damien King, but one of his crew got a fair bit of the spotlight. Dave’s daughter, 13 year old Taylor-Jane Rose, was sailing on his boat Fair Bump, Play On, not as the usual fourth “man” that female crew usually occupy, but acting as bowman in the usual 3 man crew. Taylor-Jane reckons that she pulls more than her weight with the two “old” guys being a bit past it. Photo by Peter Duncan and some more
