The Yachts




This old ocean racing warhorse has started in and finished 26 Rolex Sydney Hobart races. In 2006 she finished 2nd overall to another veteran yacht, Love & War.  Owner Martin Power has spent most of this year repairing the boat after it lost the mast and the deck disintegrated off the southern NSW coast on her way to Hobart last year. 

Bacardi will undertake her 27th race south vying to match the record of Phillip’s Foote Witchdoctor, a Davidson 42 owned by a syndicate of CYCA members which has held the record since 2007, when she last made the journey south.

Power has previously raced Breakaway with several division placings in the Rolex Sydney Hobart, including winning the Gordon Marshall Trophy in 1999.
