 The canting Pretty Fly III was 44th overall and won Division O in the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart, beating her main rival, Victoire, the other canting Cookson 50 in the race. The situation was reversed in the 2013 Hobart, when Victoire won overall and Pretty Fly III was 10th, and finished second in Division to her rival. The two will face-off again this year. In the 2013 Hobart, Colin Woods skippered his yacht to 14th on line, 10th overall and second in division, but his best performance was fourth overall in 2010. Pretty Fly III finished the 2015 Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast race 45th overall (Victoire was 22nd). In the past, Woods has owned two other yachts bearing the name Pretty Fly, which he sailed with some success.
