Carr & Co are pleased to announce that our firm’s entry in the Port to Pub Rottnest crossing on 25 March 2017 resulted in the team winning their category in a time of 5 hours 5 minutes and 45 seconds.
The team consisted of
- Ross Robertson of RCR Resources;
- Justin Palmer of Fiona Stanley Hospital;
- Mike McConnell of Air Services Australia; and
- Benjamin King of Carr & Co.
We would like to thank the owners of the boat “Paris” for allowing the team the use of their vessel and the skipper, Mr Andrew Gannon for his time and steering the team to victory.
The team was approximately 7½ minutes slower than their crossing last year, however, there were significant south westerly swells from 7 kilometres into the race.
Carr & Co would like to thank everyone who contributed to the GoFundme page of Mrs Kim McConnell relating to her cancer treatment. Approximately $1,600 was raised following the article about the team competing in the event. Kim and Mike McConnell also extend their gratitude to those who donated.
