The Australian Sharpie Sailing Association is honoured to announce that one of our sport’s true icons, Sir James Hardy, has been appointed as the Australian Patron of the Sharpie class.
He is best known in the class for his Heavyweight Sharpie National Championship victory on Tintara at the 1959 Perth carnival and his storied rivalry throughout the 50s and 60s with our former Patron, Queensland’s John Cuneo.
Sir James will be in attendance at the upcoming nationals at Adelaide Sailing Club as a special guest for our Legend’s Lunch, which will be held during the invitation races on December 29. Please contact us via email if you know of a legend that would like to join.
