This German designed yacht was built in Croatia but had a string of misfortunes in her first couple of seasons in Australia, including steering failure in her first Hobart Race and a broken mast in the 2007 Sydney Southport Race.  She completed last year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart, but placed well down the PHS results, but has since placed 5th in PHS in this year’s Sydney Gold Coast Race. Owner/skipper Phillip King has had some impressive ocean racing results, including winning races from Adelaide to Robe and Adelaide to Kangaroo Island was well as winning Division A of the 1984 Sydney Hobart with Patrice III.
