Artist's Description

Veteran Australian sailor Gordon Ingate has a distinguished competition record, including participating in the 1977 America’s Cup as skipper of Gretel II. Gordon visited Tasmania in January and February 2011, which coincided with the arrival of recently restored Gretel II. Now in the ownership of 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 on Saturday 12th February 2011, with my faithful Rolleicord Va twin lens reflex.
