Anthony Lyall purchased this boat in late November, making the step up to grand prix racing from his old warhorse Valheru, a modified Elliott 13.  Cougar II finished second overall in the 2008 Rolex Sydney Hobart, skippered by her previous owner.  Lyall, a Beaconsfield medico, will return to start in his eleventh Rolex Sydney Hobart with some of his experienced Valheru crew.
