A Gala Celebration to Remember

Royal Perth Yacht Club’s Gala Dinner, held on September 26, was an evening of elegance, celebration and inspiration. The Club was honoured to have as special guests the legendary Australia II team, sharing untold stories and behind-the-scenes anecdotes from their historic 1983 America’s Cup victory.

Their stories transported us back in time and allowed us a glimpse of the determination, grit, and unbreakable team spirit that led to their triumph.

But it wasn’t just the tales of sporting triumph that left an indelible mark on attendees—it was the reminder that the greatest victories are often born from the most arduous journeys.

Their experiences echoed our shared belief that when we come together, unified by a common purpose, we can overcome any obstacle and achieve greatness.
