Ocean Respect Racing

In a bid to encourage stronger female representation in Australian sailing and to promote ocean health and sustainability, an all-female professional crew to enter the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race has announced their campaign to lift the Tattersall Cup in Hobart.

The 13-strong crew, led by Skipper Stacey Jackson and supported by team Ambassador the Honourable Julie Bishop MP, will race under the team name of ‘Ocean Respect Racing’, in partnership with 11th Hour Racing, an international organisation that promotes sustainability through sport. Sailing on the 66 footer Wild Oats X, Ocean Respect Racing is a serious contender for victory with a combined experience of 68 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races and 17 Volvo Ocean Races. UPDATE: THE ALL FEMALE CREW OF OCEAN RESPECT RACING FINISH 2ND OVERALL IN THE 2018 ROLEX SYDNEY-HOBART YACHT RACE.
