Valheru was damaged and forced to retire following a collision (she was right of way boat) soon after the start of the 2002 Sydney Hobart Race.  After a protracted settlement case, she has been repaired by builder Peter Milner and given a new rig configuration by Fred Barrett.  Skipper Tony Lyall, a Beaconsfield medico who sails out of Hobart, will return to start in her seventh Rolex Sydney Hobart with virtually the same experienced crew from the 2002 race.
