Grundig almost caught the much bigger line honours winner, Alfa Romeo, in last year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart; this year, Sean is hoping that some minor tweaking and the lighter crew weight (eight crew) will make the difference between a second and a first. Former 18-foot skiff and 49er world champion and Volvo Ocean Race crewman Chris Nicholson will once again join the regular crew.
