Australia II Half Hull

Australia II, designed by Ben Lexcen, featured an innovative winged keel which helped to make it very rapid and navigable in many conditions.

The Australia II, skippered by John Bertrand (pictured below), faced Dennis Conner sailing the 12-metre Liberty in the ocean off Newport, Rhode Island.  Australia II came from behind to prevail 4 races to 3. The victory on September 26, 1983 was a landmark event for the nation of Australia, not to mention the Royal Perth Yacht Club, and it eventually earned Australia II the ABC’s Wide World of Sports Athlete of the Year for 1983.
