The yacht Camille is a 52 year old, double ended timber sloop designed by Wally Ward in collaboration with Ron Swanson. She was designed and built to the RORC rule for the specific purpose of competing in the 1965 Admirals Cup in England. In the 1964 Sydney to Hobart race Camille was placed second overall to Freya. Subsequently Camille placed equal first with Freya in the Australian selection trials for the Admirals Cup and these two yachts together with Caprice of Huon went onto England as Australias first challenge for the Cup. Camille was the top points scorer for the Australian team which placed a close second to the English in their first attempt at the coveted trophy. During the 1970s Camille went onto win the MHYC offshore series on numerous occasions. Competing in the 50th anniversary Sydney to Hobart race, Camille finished second on line honours in the 30-year Veteran division. Camille now sails out of the Gosford Sailing Club.
