Recently our director, Martin Hill and the Lisa Rose crew took out the 2018 Etchells World Championship in Brisbane.

“It was both a thrill and relief to cross the finish line in the final race to win the 2018 Etchells World Championship. Nothing can prepare you for such a competitive 94 boat fleet and a starting line that is 1.2 km in length. It was the combined skill of Julian Plante on Main, Mat Belcher on Tactics, Sean O Rourke on the jib/kite and Michael Blackburn as our coach, that weaved the magic to give us the 17 point winning margin”.

Watch the video to hear Martin discuss what it takes to be a world champion.
