Georgia is a New Zealand built development of the Farr 52 and is a carbon fibre, state-of-the-art design with a comfortable internal fit-out.  The yacht made her Rolex Sydney Hobart debut last year with her new owners who had sailed Bacardi with success for many years, including a 2nd overall in the 2006 Hobart Race.  John Williams last year sailed in his 25th race and this year Graeme Ainley will reach the same milestone in ocean racing.
