Celebrate International Women’s Day in style!

Enjoy a fabulous 2-course lunch and drinks while you’re regaled by champion captain Wendy Tuck.

In 2018, Wendy became the world’s first female skipper ever to win a Round the World yacht race.

After leading her 70-foot yacht, Sanya Serenity Coast, over 40,000 nautical miles and six oceans to victory in the Clipper Round the World race, Wendy said: “If one little girl sees this, sees it can be done and has a go, that will be what matters to me.”

Wendy’s life is an adventurer’s almanac. Her stories of broken bones, challenging crews, men who refused to sail with her at the helm, and the grit it took to steer her ship into the history books will enthrall and delight.

We strongly encourage people of all genders to mark this important date and be borne across the seas as we embark on an afternoon with Wendy’s extraordinary adventures.

Tickets are limited and likely to sell out, so please don’t delay.

This event is proudly brought to you by Maritime Industry Australia Ltd (MIAL) and Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association (WISTA) Australia.
