The Yachts




Nutcracker is a nicely crafted X-35 One Design from X-Yachts in Denmark.  The boat is sailed by a close group of friends from Sandringham Yacht Club in Victoria, that has achieved excellent results in the Melbourne ORCV Winter Series, as well as the Club Marine Summer Series.

This year the boat enjoyed a trip cruising to the Whitsundays and also competed at Airlie Beach Race Week achieving third place in the IRC racing class.  The crew is looking forward to fulfilling a long held goal of competing in this year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
