If the breeze favours mid-sized boats, First National Real Estate will be a strong chance for a divisional win.  Since her launch, the boat has placed well in every major ocean race she has competed in.  Current Hobart Open Race record-setting skipper Michael Spies and part owner Peter Johnston, sailing in his first Hobart, have assembled a top crew.
