Gordon Bray to host Australian Sailing Awards

Long-time Sydney Hobart commentator and legendary Rugby Union caller Gordon Bray has been announced as the host of the 2021 Australian Sailing Awards.

The Awards event will be delivered digitally in 2021, with all award winners being announced during a special 1-hour event on the Australian Sailing Facebook page from 7:30pm AEDT on Thursday 25 November.

Bray is also the voice of the Australian Sailing Hall of Fame and has hosted the Australian Sailing Hall of Fame Inductions since their inaugural year in 2017.

The finalists for this year’s National awards were announced last week and reported in Marine Business News, with the winners to be announced during the event which will feature live interviews with the winners of the Club of the Year and Male and Female Sailor of the Year categories.

The Awards will be presented by a range of individual hosts including Jessica Watson OAM who is set to present the SheSailsSustainability and Volunteer of the Year Awards.

The virtual awards will be accessible across the country and will act as a celebration of the past year in sailing. In a year that was plagued with lockdowns and restrictions, the National Awards will be a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of clubs, members and volunteers.

Clubs are encouraged to gather their members to join the celebrations of the past year in sailing; whilst looking forward to hitting the water for the 2021-22 season.
