Pretty Fly III
Pretty Fly III is a canting keel Cookson 50 that was purchased by Colin and Gladys Woods in 2009 replacing their well campaigned Beneteau 47.7. This boat is a step up in performance for this experienced crew and they have had some success with the boat in a relatively short period of time.
In last year’s Audi Sydney Offshore Newcastle Yacht Race Pretty Fly III finished 6th across the line, fifth in IRC Division 0/1 and first in ORCi division and followed this up with a second in ORCi division of the Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race in July. Pretty Fly III finished second in IRC Division 0 and ORCi division and fourth overall in the 2010 Rolex Sydney Hobart and placed third in the CYCA’s Cape Byron Series (the ORCi division of the Bluewater Pointscore).
