This quick Carkeek 47 finished 11th on line for 35th overall and fourth in Division 1 in the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart after finishing 38th overall in 2014. In 2016 Indian was the resounding winner of the WA Blue Water Championship after setting a new race record and finishing second overall in the 221nm Geraldton Classic (she took line and overall honours again in 2017), taking the treble of line honours, record and IRC overall in the 169nm Bunbury return ocean race and another treble in the 245nm Cape Naturaliste race, plus line honours in the West Coaster Race. If conditions suit, there is no reason why Craig Carter and crew shouldn’t be up amongst it. Bought in the big guns with 2008 Olympic 470 gold medallist Nathan Wilmot and local Paul Eldrid.
