Greenskin Wine Partners with Down Under Rally

Greenskin Wine is thrilled to be an official partner of the fabulous Down Under Rally, which offers cruising yacht rallies in Australia and the South Pacific each year.

Owned and operated by John and Leanne Hembrow, who have been full-time cruisers since 2009 said,

“The emphasis of the rallies is  providing support for participants whilst at sea and when onshore by sharing our extensive knowledge about sailing to, arriving and cruising in these destinations.

We’re excited to have a product like Greenskin Wine partnering with us as although we do not encourage or endorse drinking while at sea, we all love a sundowner to celebrate at the end of a voyage. Greenskin Wine is ideal as it is lightweight and unbreakable onboard and takes up so little space, full or empty!

Space is always limited onboard boats, and broken glass can be very dangerous, so Greenskin Wine is ideal for cruising yachties embarking on any adventures”.

2022 beyond the barrier rally

The ‘Beyond The Barrier Rally’ into the Coral Sea, which is a true bluewater adventure, has just completed its first voyage in early June, with another Rally set to leave mid to late June 2022.

This rally explores the Coral Sea Marine Park, which is one of Australia’s and the world’s most spectacular marine treasures. Lying off the Queensland Coast and beyond the Great Barrier Reef, from just north of Fraser Island to just south to the Torres Straits in the far north, the Coral Sea Marine Park comprises 34 reefs & 56 islets & cays and covering an area of 989,836 square kilometres is one of the world’s largest marine parks.

This seldom visited, pristine wilderness is home to a labyrinth of coral reefs, sandy cays, islets, shipwrecks and an abundance of wildlife.

POSSIBLY THE WORLD'S MOST REMOTE WINE TASTING?..

During the 2022 Rally, organisers John and Leanne conducted a Greenskin Wine Tasting afternoon at Hermit Crab Islet which is at Lihou Reef, about 330nm (610kms) ESE of Cairns in the Coral Sea Marine Park.

Here are some snaps of what could possibly be the world’s most remote wine tasting…
