Scarlet Runner

Scarlet Runner


Since her launch in July 2009, Scarlet Runner has competed in a number of inshore and offshore races.  Her first race was the Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race where she achieved first in IRC Division 1.  Following on from this, Scarlet Runner returned to Melbourne and claimed line honours and a new race record in the ORCV’s Cock of the Bay race.  In January 2010, she won the Audi Docklands Invitational and the Adelaide to Port Lincoln race in February 2010.

Earlier this year, Scarlet Runner won the double of line and IRC honours in the Adelaide to Port Lincoln and won the IRC Division of the Lexus Lincoln Week regatta and competed in the Melbourne to King Island Race.  This will be Scarlet Runner’s second Rolex Sydney Hobart and her experienced crew expects to be very competitive within the 50-55ft group.
