From the rail | 2019 Day 2

Hear how night one was spent on the largest of the yachts, Oroton Drumfire. Let's just say they didn't miss the rugby - or a hot dinner! PLUS videos of life onboard as they head up the NSW coast.


Onboard Phillip Neil’s beautiful Hoek 78 Oroton Drumfire, named after a long-distance race horse, crewman Lachie Paramour shared some humour from first night at sea: “We started by watching the All Blacks vs Springboks rugby on satellite TV (of course) before a lamb ragu dinner. The on-watch did a good job of keeping the boat rumbling and picking up a few places before the half-time change over. We had a small wave splash over the bow about two hours ago and the crew are highly concerned that this may happen again, and that we may run the risk of someone getting their feet wet.”
