KAZ

 

It’s been an extraordinary year for KAZ and the Sailors with disABILITIES program with a successful non-stop record-breaking circumnavigation of Australia.  Skipper David Pescud’s best result has been a divisional win with a previous boat in the tough 1998 Race.  Experienced yachtsmen Kim Jaggar and Phil Thompson will join him again for the Boxing Day race.  Jaggar is sailing his 25th Rolex Sydney Hobart.
