Heading North

Daniel Edwards, owner of White Noise, 2015/16 ORCV Offshore Championship winner is receiving some good publicity about his campaign to take a break from the Melbourne winter to compete in the northern regattas.

First published on the Magnetic Island Race Week site (http://magneticislandraceweek.com.au/latest-news), the story has also been picked up by others including Sail World and Yachts and Yachting.
Good luck to Daniel and his crew and we hope to hear some more news from them over the journey!
