Over the past 5 years the father & son team have working side by side building the new Spirit of Australia II. The new boat is completed with successful testing undertaken in July 2017 at Taree N.S.W. The team will move testing to the home of the World Water Speed Record, Blowering Dam N.S.W to allow the team to test the boat at higher speeds on the 10 km long course . we are looking forward to returning to the Snowy Mountains Region of N.S.W, to catch up with friend’s & make new ones, and breaking a new World Water Speed Record.
