Lunchtime Legend is a brand new Beneteau First 40 that was built by Beneteau Yachts in France and designed by Farr Yacht Design. She was launched in August this year and finished fifth in her class at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week. A dual winner of the Brisbane to Gladstone and many other major races in Australian waters, including a third in the Rolex Sydney Hobart, Robbo believes he has the experience and endurance to become a serious challenger when the fleet heads south on Boxing Day.
“I guess when you approach the sundown-side of 60, you could be classed among the pretenders, but Lunchtime Legend has the crew experience and the potential handicap rated speed to be rated among the serious contenders,” Robertson said.
