14th Bartercard Sail Paradise 2023 – Aramex steps up


Team ‘Aramex,’ the 2022 Sail Paradise Champions, are gearing up for another thrilling competition. Owners Steve Curtis and Kerry Noyes, and their passionate crew, are eager to take on this year’s fleet with full force.

‘Aramex’ is a formidable yacht, a Farr 40 Od design launched in 2003, boasting a crisp white exterior and striking spinnaker. Hailing from the SYC Gold Coast, this crew is deeply rooted in Southport Yacht Club and carries a profound passion for sailing.

Kerry Noyes and Steve Curtis hold a strong affection for Bartercard Sail Paradise’s new date and are excited about the prospect of competing against a more extensive and competitive fleet that might otherwise be racing in the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. They have no intention of holding back and are determined to outshine formidable contenders like ‘Let’s Get It On,’ ‘Black Diamond,’ ‘Maritimo,’ ‘Makani,’ ‘GCCM Arctic Blonde,’ ‘Wedgetail,’ and all others venturing onto Gold Coast waters.

This is a winning team, characterised by their precision and hunger for victory, and the yacht is ready for the challenge. Kerry Noyes expressed ‘We welcome all yachts to this great regatta and look forward to making new friends and meeting up with old ones once again during Bartercard Sail Paradise, but on the water, Team Aramex is going to bring their ‘A’ game once again’
