This will be Great Xpectations’ (the name comes from a play on her design) first Hobart race. In the lead-up in July, she contested her first Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race since 2007 and finished 24th overall and 11th in Division 3, showing promise. A regular performer at events such as the Sydney Harbour Regatta and the CYCA’s 2014/2015 OPS, where she finished fourth overall in IRC, third overall in ORCi and won PHS, Great Xpectations also won the 2011 Australia Day Cup and was the first of a new breed of X-Yachts to come into Australia when Rod Wills took delivery of her in December 2003.
