After living in California for 46 years, ex-pat Australian, and international yachtsman, Robbie Vaughan, decided a few months ago to return home to Hobart, semi-retire and enter his classic 20-metre long sloop, Van Diemen III, in Hamilton Island Race Week 2018.
When the entry was lodged a few days ago, Van Diemen III became the 100th nomination for the acclaimed regatta which is scheduled for August 18 to 25. And, making the milestone even more impressive was the fact that the first 100 entries came at a rate faster than that seen in 2016 when a record 252 yachts competed at Race Week.
