Daniel Smith is skippering the boat that was known as Old Pulteney in the 2013 Hobart race, which was skippered by Patrick van der Zijden to 60th overall (one place behind fellow Clipper Yacht, Great Britain) and ninth in Division 1, filling out the final podium place in the Clipper division. She ultimately finished second overall in the 2013 Clipper Round the World Race, and that is where she is situated now, following two Clipper legs. On board for the Rolex Sydney Hobart is former nurse, Alison Boeree, who now teaches criminal law at a British university. Boeree lost her husband three years ago and has the desire to make the most of every day and every opportunity, just as her husband did.
