Barranjoey Pin

Barranjoey Pin Recipients
by Gordon Lavery


We are undertaking a series of profiles in the Logbook on Squadron Members who have been awarded a Barranjoey Pin by Australian Sailing for their achievements at Olympic or World Championship Level.

Described as the ’Baggy Green’ of sailing, the Barranjoey Pin raises the profile of some of Australia’s greatest sailors and gives them the recognition they may not have received in the past, while providing inspiration to today’s sailors.
