The Australian fleet of Shaws continues to grow; the first homebuilt Shaw in Australia Peow Peow has shown good speed in a wide range of conditions to take out Brisbane's Sportsboat Saturday Series from a range of boats including Thompsons, Melges 24 and so on. The regatta is scored under the SMS rule.
