ANARCHY & SYDNEY HOBART
We we won't be taking Fireball with us to Australia, she wont fit in the plane.
However our good friends in Australia have made available their 40.7 for
us to ,blast down The Australian coast on.
She's a cracking boat and like Fireball well maintained.
We will be taking Fireballs sail wardrobe with us. Well if you have Gucci 3Di sails you might as well use them.
Effectively that means we will be as competitive down under as we are up here in the UK
Ok so participating in Australian qualifying races is a problem but we are allowed to skirt round this by participating in a 150Nm passage over a 24hr plus time frame.
We will also get some TEAM training in the Solent for all of you based here in the UK, or can travel here without to much inconvenience.
The yachts are essentially the same so other than different coloured sheets and halyards the transition to the race boat should be straight forward.
You will also need to complete a RYA/ISAF Sea Survival course. This is not included as it allows you more flexibility in where you take them and some of you may already have a valid certificate. Each course is approximately £200. We can arrange these for you.
We will provide you with one of our famous Team Shirts & a Gillet although we are talking to Sail Racing regarding their amazing jackets.
Not cheap but if we can get enough discount we will offer those at an additional cost.
Having worn one across the Biscay I was seriously impressed. You will want one.
Also included is the return sail back to Sydney which is optional however if we don't have enough of you to sail the boat back we will need to add a surcharge to cover the travel costs of the owner and his mate to help sail her back.

We are a TEAM so we guide and help each other through each race. Some of the crew will be more capable and experienced than others. You learn as you go. We will include a training weekend in the UK plus training & a qualifying passage in Australia.
Once we all get use to each other, our strengths and weaknesses, how we respond to fatigue and sleep deprivation, how many sugars you take in your tea.
All the little things that are 'as important' as your skill development. We will learn to communicate, work together, look out for each other, laugh together, get cold and wet together, soak up the sunshine together.
We have had absolute novices who have shinned. Experienced guys who have started out left wanting. By being a TEAM we can be amazing and on the 2019 Fastnet we were exactly that. Never been as proud of a crew as that lot. They set the bar.
We challenge you to better them.
HOW TO BOOK
Well as you are reading this you must have a Computer, Tablet or a Smartphone or some magical device we are oblivious too.
So given your a tech wizard try one of these:
We genuinely discourage the use of Semaphore (waving flags around), morse code by lamp or telegraph, Smoke Signals, Chinese Whispers or "my mates ask me to ask you"
Or use our carefully crafted form below and we will get back to you.
By the nature of our business we are often on the water and don't man a full time office. Once about 5-10 miles offshore telephone signal is at best poor.
We therefore can't always provide an immediate response but we do promise to get back to you. We want your custom.
TEAM ANARCHY 2021 Sydney Hobart
OUR UK BASED EVENTS
Anarchy Sailing is about fun first.
That said we love to race and we love to beat our rivals.
Each year we invest more into our yachts.
Sails, sail configuration to optimise performance against rating.
Smoother hull, new electronics and all kit replace when needed including halyards, sheets etc.
We will always present the yacht in the best possible condition so there are no excuses on the water.
Ultimately we are a TEAM and regardless of your previous experience you will become a key member of the TEAM.
Remember Life's a riot
