AGage 50 2016
The original 2013 Sailonline SOLer AGage memorial circumnavigation of Australia included a short triangular course in his homewaters off Brighton, Adelaide – the AGage 100. The 100 is not part of our current 2016 re-run of this classic tour, and it is a bit long for a sprint. So here you have the alternative – the AGage 50, three equidistant legs in Bruce Farr designed Finngulf 43s.
