Peter Hickson purchased Calm in September, renaming her M3. First race was the George Law Memorial Foundation Race, and in big winds, took line and overall honours. Next was the Fremantle Geraldton race, the main tore, her crew forced to sail at 70 percent, but still finished third overall. They are ready for the Hobart and their competitors, including club mates on Indian. While Hickson owns the boat, crew members Brian McMaster and John Naughton also have a financial interest in the boat for the race. Under Victorian ownership, the boat last went to Hobart in 2012 and was the best placed TP52 in fifth overall and second in Division 1, and finished fifth again the next year. The Victorians had purchased the boat in 2009 and took line and IRC honours in the 2009 Melbourne Stanley Race. WA’s Tony Mitchell was her next owner, until illness claimed his life last year.
