Broadsword is one of the successful range of Archambault 40 and was bought only recent by Simon Wood. She set sail in her qualifying race for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race by participating in the 414nm Hempel Gosford – Lord Howe Island Race in late October. Unfortunately, she split her mainsail on the first night at sea and was forced to retire, but should be ready for Hobart.
