Listen to Fontaine Foxworth's recount from her first Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, aboard Ted Tooher's Beneteau First 40, Chancellor.
Fontaine, originally from Texas, has been harbour racing in Sydney for five years.
She joined the Chancellor crew and the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia earlier this year and has enjoyed learning the more manual parts of sailing - from changing headsails to flying spinnakers.
Leading up to the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart, she worked on a lot of the documentation to make sure Chancellor had all of its documents sorted with the Sailing Office.
In this 19-minute recording, Fontaine gives a detailed account of her experience on Chancellor, which retired on the second day of racing with sail damage.
