Ashley Skett is the skipper of Garmin, and his round the world crew includes Aussie Ross Ham from Brisbane, who is circumnavigating the globe for the second time after competing in the Clipper 2013-14 race. Also aboard is Rich Perkin from Las Vegas, USA. Perkin, who works for Cirque du Soleil as head of automation in his normal life, wanted to recapture the immortality of his youth. The 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart provided one-design racing at its best, when nine of the Clipper fleet finished in succession, while two others had just one non-Clipper boat between them. This boat competed then as One DLL, and was 61st overall, 10th in Division 1 and 4th in the Clipper division, skippered by Oliver Cotterell, who went on to take the final podium place overall in the 2013 Clipper Round the World Race.
