Dysons Cobb

Dysons Cobb

 

Previously called Ninety Seven, this 47-footer beat a fleet of much bigger yachts in the treacherous conditions of the 1993 race to take Line Honours.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of that historic win and one of the original crew members, Adam Brown, from Sydney, will join skipper Chris Dare, a champion dinghy sailor, and the Victorian crew.
