Maiden Sydney Hobart for Calibre, but she has competed in many other events. Richard Williams recently sailed her to sixth overall in the Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race after finishing third overall the 2015 Land Rover Winter Series, outdoing all but one of the six Sydney 38’s and eight other boats in her division. Finished a solid second in October’s Newcastle Bass Island Race, so it appears Williams and crew are in good form. In recent years, the yacht was campaigned by Williams and former co-owner, Geoff Bonus, who mostly concentrated on sailing in Sydney 38 One-Design events for seven seasons and also in those such as the CYCA Trophy and the SSORC.
