The green-hulled Another Fiasco was launched as Maglieri Wines for Geoff Vercoe who finished well down in the record 371-boat fleet in 1994. He went on to fifth overall in ’95, was 10th in ’96, 17th in ’97 (with a ninth in IMS) before boat was sold and became Esprit de Corps and retired from the 1998 and 1999 Hobarts. Queenslander Brian Graves was her next owner, and the renamed Frontier Economics finished 15th overall under IRC in the 2000 Hobart. Damian Suckling purchased her and won PHS overall in the 2006 Hobart before re-rating for IRC. He finished 29th overall in 2007 and 57th overall in 2009. Suckling, who spends untold time offshore aboard ships for employer Offshore Unlimited, a provider of a comprehensive range of offshore services for Australia's oil and gas industry, put in practice at Airlie Beach Race Week in August to prepare for his fifth Rolex Sydney Hobart.
