Taking a deserved break at the Schweppes Viper Worlds - Viper 640 International Class Association

Vipers Cocktail Party

After a hard day’s sailing with four races completed, sailors were able to let their hair down at the Western Australian Maritime Museum for a cocktail party.

In the shadows of the iconic Australia II (the real yacht, not a replica) and Jon Sanders’ Parry Endeavour, the yacht that carried him around the globe single handed, non-stop for three circuits, Viper competitors enjoyed local wines and some great camaraderie knowing that a sleep-in was possible this morning with a lay-day scheduled.
