Launched in December 2007, St Jude was the sixth Sydney 47 out of the mould at Azzura Yachts. She sailed her first offshore race in the 2008 Australia Day Ocean Pointscore Race to Botany Bay and return, and won on IRC. A group of friends who, in various combinations, have crewed together for many years have teamed up for the yacht’s first race to Hobart. Cornish’s personal record includes winning the 1999 Adelaide – Port Lincoln Race overall in his then Beneteau FC10, Subjude – a common them for his boats as his wife’s name is Judith.
