2017 George Law Foundation Race

Saturday, 16 September 2017

George Law joined Fremantle Sailing Club in 1987 after building his yacht ‘Angel’, and was a very active member. After buying ‘Battlestar’ in 1992, George participated in many inshore and offshore races, winning the Fremantle to Geraldton Return Races, Bunbury, and Mandurah races, the inaugural Port Geographe race and the very competitive Fremantle Harbour Classic. George Law was always identified with his yacht, “Battlestar” which is a Peterson 45 launched 1977 for the Admiral’s Cup, when she was skippered by John Bertrand. “Battlestar” completed five Sydney to Hobart Races and in 1999 took the first ever ‘all female crew’ to compete in the Fremantle to Geraldton and Return Races. Isabel Law and the crew of “Battlestar” have provided the last bell cast by Law Foundries as a perpetual trophy for The Foundation Race to commemorate George’s keen interest in sailing, his joy of life and his ability to encourage people to reach their own goal.
