Australian America's Cup 12m Yachts Saved

Just found a snippet in the paper about KA5 Australia and KA14 Steak n Kidney that were rotting away in Airlie Beach. They were plucked out of the water to be renovated and preserved as history of Australian yacht racing by the Australian 12m Historic Trust.

And their video channel

The add for the sale of the yachts

And for those that need their memory jogged, the last few minutes of KA6 Australia II beating some slow American boat.
