Myuna III is an extended Cavalier 37, launched in 1991, and sailed regularly since then. Her only Hobart was the extreme 1993 race, under previous owner Dr Thomas Stokoe, and like so many others, retired. Stokoe also campaigned the yacht in multiple Melbourne-Hobarts, Melbourne-Portland and Melbourne-Grassy Island races. As Myuna III, she sailed in the 2014 Melbourne Vanuatu rally, which covers a distance of 1885 nautical miles. To this day, she still carries her original sail number, and like Stokoe, Geoff Nixon is representing the Sandringham Yacht Club, but Nixon plans to get Myuna to the finish line this year.
