2021 MAJOR SUPPORTER
– WARREN JONES FOUNDATION
Warren Jones of “Australia II” fame died suddenly on 17th May, 2002. His sudden and untimely death was a bitter blow to his many friends throughout Australia and around the World. Warren made a fabulous contribution to local and international yachting with perhaps his greatest achievement occurring in September 1983, when as Alan Bond’s lieutenant, he led a group of Australian yachtsmen to victory to win the 1983 Americas Cup from the New York Yacht Club for the first time in 132 years of competition. This feat brought Australia to the forefront of international sailing competition. Warren also became one of Australia’s leading businessmen and community leaders and played a big role in the development of young sailors. He had a down to earth nature, enormous amounts of energy, a competitive spirit, great courage and determination to reach his goals and was always ready to give the younger generation his words of wisdom and moral support.
The aim of the foundation, named in Warren Jones’ memory and started by his many friends and associates, is to give a new generation of yachtsmen and women the chance to live their dreams – just as Warren did his. The main beneficiary of the Warren Jones Foundation is the Warren Jones International Youth Regatta.
