This was our ANZAC run and due to the Easter & ANZAC Day holiday period we only managed four skippers sailing in attendance. This didn’t deter us from having a great sail with four proud Australian warships sailing and Sydney Tug Warang. Arunta and Diamantina looked great sailing together as did Melbourne and Anzac. The four ships took part in watch keeping exercises which I must say went extremely well and was appreciated by the general public watching. I took a photo of Warang coming along side Arunta at her mooring, who knows, Warang may well have assisted Arunta during the war years.
