This will be Katinka’s 5th trip to Hobart and Paul’s first as skipper. His father, Des, has sailed in 27 Hobarts and has assisted in preparations but won’t be on board. The crew has been training for two years with the aim to improve the boat’s previous best result of a 3rd in PHS division. Returning to ocean racing, Katinka won the IMS division of the Long Ocean Pointscore race to Cabbage Tree Island.
