Syd Fischer’s newly hulled Ragamuffin 100 contested her maiden Rolex Sydney Hobart last year and finished third on line to Wild Oats XI and Comanche, after looking good early on. Her speed potential was evident, but some tactical decisions saw her parked up a couple of times. In July, Ragamuffin 100 finished second on line to Wild Oats XI in the Transpac Race. In September, she took line honours in the 672nm Hong Kong Vietnam Race, breaking the race record of 42h 41m 20s, by 23 minutes, which Fischer set in 2013 with his smaller Ragamuffin 90. Ragamuffin’s hull was designed by Andy Dovell, her modified deck comes from Investec Loyal which Fischer purchased from Anthony Bell, renamed Ragamuffin and raced to Hobart in 2012 and 2013.
