AMERICA'S CUP 1983, NEWPORT,  RHODE ISLAND,  U.S.A.

Dianne was singing Waltzing Matilda on the foredeck of the official Royal Perth Yacht Club Observation Boat as Australia 11
crossed the victory line.

She was engaged by the Sheraton Hotel in Newport Rhode Is., to entertain during the final three weeks of the 1983 America's Cup. 
On that unique day in yachting history, as Australia 11 crossed the finish line to victory, Di was belting out Walzing Matilda at the top of her voice through a PA system that had already blown its fuses twice, turned up full volume, to blast to the final circle of assembled international boats in Narragansett Sound
