America’s Cup 30th Anniversary Dinner

It is extraordinary to think that 30 years has passed since Fremantle’s defense of the America’s Cup. As part of the Fremantle Heritage Festival, there will a special event to mark this momentous event, that changed Fremantle and indeed, the entire Perth region forever. It will be a night of yachting fun and history at the WA Maritime Museum.

As part of a collaboration between The National Hotel and the WA Maritime Museum, speakers will include:

  • Brian Burke (1987 WA Premier),
  • John Longley (Australia II crew member and Bond team representative),
  • Peter Gilmour (Kookaburra III starting helmsman and tactician, WA sportsman of the year 1987) and more to be announced.

Tickets include: Three course dinner, wine and drinks and a live band and dancing to the finest hits of the eighties featuring “Some Like it Yacht”.
