Chance of Shenval
This Melbourne yacht was designed as a cruiser/racer but so far has done more cruising than racing, including a Pacific cruise to Tahiti and return. She started but retired from the 2004 Rolex Sydney Hobart, a decision that showed prudent seamanship. Beneath the luxurious fit-out lie the fast lines created by Bruce Farr. This will be owner/skipper Robert Green’s 25th Sydney Hobart, a fine record that shows two 2nd places (1973 and 1984) and a 3rd in 1966, which was then the first top three place by a Victorian yacht.
