Veteran Australian sailor Gordon Ingate has a distinguished competition record. He is possibly best known for his entry in the 1977 America’s Cup in command of his International 12 metre class racing yacht Gretel II.

Gordon Ingate visited Tasmania in January and February 2011. His visit coincided with the arrival in Tasmania of recently restored Gretel II in the hands of its current owner Mike Maxwell. She was the undisputed star of the 2011 Australian Wooden Boat Festival.

On 26th January 2011, nearly 25 years after he last sailed her, Ingate skippered Gretel II to a line honours victory in the 40 nautical mile Australia Day Green Island Race.

I made this portrait of Gordon, re-united with Gretel II in her main cabin during the AWBF in Hobart, on Saturday 12th February 2011, with my Rolleicord Va.
