Fremantle 1987 photos

Western Australia

Australia facts & history in brief

Fremantle is a few kilometres from Perth and is the port of Perth and the main port for Western Australia.

In 1983, Australia II, an 'America's Cup' designed boat, owned by the multimillionaire Western Australian entrepreneur Alan Bond, won the America's Cup yacht race.
Fremantle was the site of the 1987 'Cup' race, which attracted yachting enthusiasts and television crews from all over the world.

The 'Fremantle Doctor', brings the cool sea breeze, to the hot and humid Perth region.

I visited Fremantle because it was there, also because New Zealand was involved in the America's Cup races in San Diego and Fremantle as well.

Our participation was the talking point of our nation for the following years, until we won the 'Cup' and defended it until 2003.

Most of Fremantle was rebuilt, restored or repainted for the races.

Nice place.
