The Baudin/Flinders Southern Dash

Sunday 26th June, 2022

 

Baudin/ Flinders, a race and a friendly encounter held at

 Encounter Lakes, Bartel Boulevard, Encounter Bay.

 

In October 1800, Nicolas Baudin set sail from France to map the shores of “Terra Australis”. A few months later, Matthew Flinders cast off under the British flag. The race was on to map the Southern continent. Their expeditions were a great feat of endurance and courage. Despite being in a period of war, the two captains shared a meal and compared scientific notes in the friendly waters now known as Encounter Bay.
