2023 A New Beginning for Azzurro

"Be fast or be last"

This saying embodies our unwavering commitment to offshore racing. With each race, we arrive prepared to claim victory and leave our competitors in our wake.

As the proud new owners of Azzurro, we swiftly sealed the deal with legendary Australian sailor Shane Kearns after the 2022 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. 

Shane’s restoration of Azzurro was immaculate with her rich blue hull, sparkling white deck and faultless stainless-steel fittings and even a carbon fibre toilet, the boat is a sight to behold and a proven contender in offshore racing in Australia. Better still, Azzurro was meticulously prepared for the recent Sydney to Hobart and comes with a very extensive sail wardrobe so other than a lick of antifoul, we are bursting at the seams to set sail in the 75th Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race.

Prior to being bought in 2014 by Shane Kearns then restored and raced with some impressive performances, Azzurro was previously campaigned with enormous success in the mid-80s and early-90s by former Sandringham Yacht Club Commodore, Rob White as Shenandoah 2.

Our mission is to assemble a star crew capable of conquering the prestigious Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.

With a legendary restoration and a growing list of wins, Azzurro has its sights set on winning the Rolex Sydney to Hobart.
