One of the veterans of the race, this 38-year-old sloop entered the 2008 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race on the eve of setting sail once again in the Gosford – Lord Howe Island Race, which she won in 1997.  In her 23 races to Hobart this sturdy Peter Cole-designed 43-footer has scored several division wins and also placed 2nd in the IRC division in 2001.  Polaris again won the Lord Howe Race, taking out the PHS division of the 2008 event in late October.
