Frank and John Livingston's exploits on their Kurrewa yachts were truly incredible. Frank the practical business man and John the 'ideas man', were a winning combination. They mixed with some of the most powerful and influential people of their day. They won line-honours in the Sydney-Hobart race four times, a record that stands today. They also participated in the Trans-Tasman race, breaking a long standing record.
A rash promise made at the height of a cyclone saw them sail across the Pacific Ocean to compete in the 1949 Los Angeles-Honolulu race. They also campaigned for the America's Cup in 1964. This is a story of their adventures, it is part of Australia's history. They were great Aussie larrikins. 233 x 153mm., pp. 226, black & white plates, index, bibliography, end notes.
