Australian Sailing Hall of Fame – pop-up panel exhibition

Opens 4 November 2017 – 31 January 2018
Australian National Maritime Museum
Wharf 7 Maritime Heritage Centre,
58 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont NSW 2009

This graphic exhibition features the stories of the honourees in the inaugural Australian Sailing Hall of Fame, some of the greats of the sport who have helped make sailing what it is today – a sport that has produced some of Australia’s greatest sporting moments – in the America’s Cup, the Olympics, blue water racing and world sailing. Wonderful images chronicle the achievements of each inductee, individual or team who has strived to the top of their sport. They are as much personal journeys as they are sporting stories. The exhibition accompanies the Seaworthy display of several related significant historic craft including the 1/3 scale test tank model of Australia II and the 5.5m Barranjoey, in which Sir William Northam, Peter O’Donnell and James Sargeant won Australia’s first Olympic gold medal in sailing in 1964.

The Australian Sailing Hall of Fame touring exhibition is developed by the Australian National Maritime Museum in partnership with Australian Sailing.
