Robin Hawthorn has only contested two Rolex Sydney Hobarts with his Imagination and finished well up in both. Last year the Beneteau First 47.7 was 14th overall and eighth in Division 3, and in 2009, she was ninth overall and fifth in Division 3. Last year, the Sydney yachtsman was joined by his two sons, Hamish and Campbell, for their first taste of the 628 nautical mile race, this after winning the Bird Island race earlier in December – and the two join him again. Imagination finished the CYCA’s 2013-214 Short Ocean Pointscore season with IRC wins in the Combined SOP’s and Spring Pointscore and was IRC third in the Autumn Pointscore.
