Antony Hussey, better known as “CAPPA” started sailing in Sydney, spending the last 20 years racing on the bow of some of the world’s biggest and most famous yachts.
Cappa was the guy you always wanted as your ‘right hand man’ and a sailor of the highest caliber and standards. He completed over 25 transatlantics, 4 Hobarts, a couple of Fastnet and Bermuda Races, every Caribbean 600 and some 250k miles at sea. He was aboard for Playstation’s Miami-Newport record run and most recently on the bows of Shamrock V, Salperton IV, Athos and his final race with Swan 90 Nefertiti.
So, if you see a bloke with big ears and feet like waffles with a bunch of chicks hanging off him as he dances his own unique dance, it’s not Cappa; it’s an imitation.
Sail on brother. We’ll miss you always.
A small ceremony & big party will be held in Palma de Mallorca TOMORROW September 18 & again in Australia on September 27 at the Terrigal Surf Club.
