The two Australian Olympians Outteridge and Slingsby both grew up on the NSW Central Coast and have done a great deal of sailing on the lake, honing their sailing skills – which have seen them with ever-growing trophy shelves.
The two will be sailing their own Foiling Moths in the One Lap Dash, and are also lending their strong support to the HCW fundraising activities, through sponsorship of their boats in the race, along with being guest speakers at the Heaven Can Wait Charity fundraising dinner at Royal Motor Yacht Club Toronto the night before the race (Friday, October 1).
Skippers and crews of boats who have entered the HCW Charity Regatta will get first priority when booking for this dinner.
