The Aero Commander enabled us to photograph offshore and shoot images which showed how tough the race can be.

The pocket maxi Starlight Express was photographed on the second day beating into a hard southerly.

This photograph was used by the Cascade brewery the next year on their annual Sydney Hobart yacht race beer can and was widely published.
