In this week’s “WoW TV”:

• The huge Finn fleet are battling it out in Greece.
• The MC 38s in Sydney where Kiwi Neville Creighton in Maserati wins.
• The big Palma Vela fleet are in Spain.

• Sir Robin Knox Johnston introduces the crews to their skippers for the 2019-20 Clipper Round the World Race.
• The ex Prime Minister of Australia Bob Hawke passed away May 16 and in tribute we replay him telling a very funny joke at the 30th Anniversary lunch in Sydney on September 26th 2013 with John Bertrand and Australia II winning America’s Cup syndicate Head Alan Bond. It’s a very funny joke with a boating flavour. Rest in peace, Bob Hawke, you were a true blue Ozzie larrikan. You will be missed.
