AUSTRALIA - KA 5 

INTERNATIONAL 12 METRE YACHT 

AMERICA'S CUP CHALLENGER 1977 & 1980

 

Australia is a remarkable 12 Metre yacht. She is the only yacht throughout the history of the America's cup to have challenged on two occasions. Her first challenge was in 1977 against Courageous skippered by Ted Turner and her second in 1980, against Freedom skippered by Dennis Connor. A truly evocative yacht, credited with defining an era of 12 Metre America's Cup racing, culminating in the momentous victory by 'Australia II' in 1983. - Leigh Dorrington, Sydney.

 The design for Australia was developed with the assistance of the Dutch University of Delf, using multiple tank test models. With a large bustle, low freeboard and innovative approach to locating ballast she was a forerunner to the famous Americas Cup winner Australia II.

 In 2019 she was refurbished at great expense in preparation to compete the in the 12 Metre World Championships in Newport. Unfortunately, the plan failed to materialize and she was unable to join her old competitors, original stablemate and ultimate winner of the event, Challenge Twelve.
