Sailors With Disabilities
Sailors With Disabilities returns to defend a PHS win in 2007 Rolex Sydney Hobart race. This follows from a PHS win in 2006 Sydney Mooloolaba and a second in the inaugural Sydney Mackay Yacht Race in the same year. This specially designed 54-footer has contested every east coast regatta and offshore race since being launched in 2000. With their previous boat, Pescud and his largely disabled crew won PHS Division A of the storm battered 1998 Sydney Hobart. SWD also holds the monohull circumnavigation of Australia record.
