Geoff Hill has brought his seasoned TP52 Strewth out to Australia after competing in Hong Kong for a number of years.  Strewth placed third in the 2010 Rolex South China Seas Race; second in the Subic-Boracay race and third in the recent Hong Kong to San Fernando Race.  For this year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart, she will be competing with a mixture of local sailors and Hong Kong sailors, with Lindsay May acting as navigator.  The boat also placed third in the 2005 Transpac race under the name of Trader and its previous owner.
