Sailing the Whitsundays with George Gregan


Former Wallabies captain George Gregan is an Australian sporting legend with a thirst for adrenalin and adventure. When invited on a fun weekend away George had no hesitation in packing his Land Rover Discovery Sport and heading for the airport, destination far north Queensland.

In the Whitsunday Islands he met up with Julian Griffiths, skipper of The Boatworks Extreme 40, and jumped on board to join the crew for Airlie Beach Race Week to see if his rugby captaincy skills could be transferrable to boat captiancy.

After hijinks on the high seas, George then jumps in a light plane to soak up stunning aerial views of the spectacular region, and rounded out his weekend by joining Whistsunday Jetski Tours for an afternoon of hunting the whitest beaches he could find.

With an action-packed few days to his name it was a smiling George Gregan who checked into his flight, loading luggage and new memories into his Land Rover Discovery Sport upon touchdown back in the big city.
