Illustrated with vibrant images of regattas past and present, this chronicle focuses on the Australia Day Regatta, offering a slice of Sydney’s history through its enduring yachting traditions. Believed to be the oldest continuously held annual regatta in the world, the Australia Day Regatta has been held on Sydney Harbour every year since 1837 and has grown to involve nearly 700 vessels–from ocean-going yachts to small sailing dinghies–and thousands of participants. This book not only traces the fascinating history of this unique event, but reveals the history of sailing in Sydney since the early years of the colony and examines the regatta’s dedicated supporters and patrons. pp. 304 illusts #0519
