The former Chancellor, an extensively tuned Beneteau 40.7, has a distinguished racing pedigree and is a tried sail training yacht for east coast sailors. Based in Rose Bay, Wave Sweeper is a regular summer racer and regatta boat.  A previous winner of the Coffs Harbour race as Le Billet, as well as a Rolex Sydney Hobart and Sydney Mooloolaba competitor, Wave Sweeper likes to head north during the winter season to compete in the northern sailing program including Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island regattas.

This will be the seventh Rolex Sydney Hobart for this hard working boat. Under new owner Morgan Rogers, she has undergone a refurbishment program this year and the team are hoping for a good result in this race.
