After battling the fierce conditions of the 1998 Race to take out the Overall trophy, the owners bought a bigger boat and this year recorded a Flinders Island Race win as their best result so far.  The crew should be settled into the new boat by now and will be looking for another spot on the Rolex Sydney Hobart winner’s podium.
