On Saturday, October 20, yachtswoman Lisa Blair embarked on her latest adventure, in an attempt to become the first woman to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around Australia. The Australian is no stranger to such a challenge and holds the record for the first woman to sail solo around Antarctica.

Departing from d’Albora’s Marina in Rushcutters Bay, the 33-year-old from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, set off to circumnavigate the entire coastline of Australia, including Tasmania, anti-clockwise as the only person on board.  


d’Albora Marinas is Lisa’s primary supporter and sponsor of this current venture which has now been christened ‘d’Albora’s Action Project: AUS 360’. 

Suzanne Davies, CEO of d’Albora Marinas said, "We are delighted to support Lisa in her journey to be the first solo female sailor to circumnavigate Australia and are very proud to be part of spreading positive environmental messages”.  d’Albora and Lisa are very aligned in support of women putting themselves out there to achieve great things and in spreading positive environmental action.  We wish Lisa well for a safe and successful journey, on her way she will pass by all of our seven marinas on the east coast and while we would receive her with open arms, we hope that she doesn’t need to stop back in until she returns home to d’Albora Rushcutters Bay when we look forward to welcoming Lisa home and working with her to further spread her positive messages.” 


Lisa adds, “I’m thrilled to have d’Albora Marinas on-board for this adventure. d’Albora’s have always supported my missions and I’m looking forward to being their ambassador over the next 12 months. d’Albora plans to add a further three sites to their portfolio by the end of the year and I look forward to supporting them in their own exciting journey too.”
