are we missing something?

All that’s left of Wild Oats XI today after its controversial Sydney-Hobart campaign is the keel and bulb, about to be shifted by crane to a quiet corner of Woolwich Dock. The facility in Sydney is owned by the Oatley family, owners of WOXI and WOX. The hull and spars are already packed away in the shed. Presumably everything will be exhumed and re-assembled for the Gold Coast race in late July and the Hamilton Island Race Week that follows in August. The Oatley family also own the Hamilton Island resort. All makes sense, really… – Anarchist David.
