Australia II coming to Cowes
A major sponsor would be announced at Royal Perth Yacht Club as soon as the formalities of the funding were completed, he said. The Ben Lexcen-designed yacht is now owned by the Western Australian Museum
(WA Government), and will be sailed by her original Cup-winning crew. She will be shipped over, re-rigged with a new mast and rigging in England, and sailed in the Solent area, as there is insufficient time to rig and sail her in Australia prior to the event.
