Mara Stransky’s  Offshore Challenge in a Laser Radial

Mara Stansky reports on her Laser Radial epic.

“On Saturday of the Labour Day long weekend 2018, I sailed out through the Gold Coast Seaway at first light. Heading offshore past South and North Stradbroke and Moreton Islands, I then rounded Cape Moreton, and reached across the top of Moreton Island before beating back down the west coast to finally rest off Tangalooma, arriving just before dusk.

This trip clocked up 78nm (146km) and took a total of 11hrs 44mins.”

Mara’s epic offshore adventure in May is recounted in full by her HERE. There is a YouTube video of the adventure HERE.

Mara is a fabulous sailor and a great athlete. She had a watchful guardian boat standing by. Please don’t try to emulate her feat without the same advantages and preparation.
