1972 Brisbane-Gladstone race: DNF
From Facebook 2023 "Pilgrim was in the fleet that got smoked by cyclone Emily in the 1972 Brisbane-Gladstone race (which claimed about 8 or 9 lives). Weather reporting not being what it is today the cyclone warning came a fraction too late, just after the morning sked, as the fleet was running hard towards the eye. Approaching Gladstone a decision had to be made whether to stay inside, - between the islands of the southern part of the great barrier reef and the mainland (only about 15miles of sea-room in either direction)-, or go wide (for some sea room). She was a pretty tough boat Pilgrim, they abandoned the race and went wide (about 80 miles off the coast) and hoved-to. By all accounts they went through the eye, 100mph winds from one direction, then a brief calm before 100mph winds from the opposite direction. There was a trimaran in that race that accounted for some of the deaths, by all accounts their last radio contact with Gladstone radio went something like this "we're running at 12kts under bare poles, we can't slow the boat down, we can see a lighthouse up ahead but we don't know what it is". That was shortly before they hit the bricks at Bustard Head south of Gladstone and some of them didn't make it."
