Jaffa

Jaffa

 

Jaffa was constructed by Peter Milner and launched in 2008. Since then she has competed in most offshore races held in Western Australia. She was designed specifically for conditions off the WA coast as well as cruising between Rottnest and the small ports up and down the coast. This is Jaffa’s first Rolex Sydney Hobart Race. Jaffa’s best results have come from the more difficult upwind races. She has twice been runner up in the Siska trophy, the overall blue water racing championship trophy in Western Australia. Seven of her crew are from Western Australia and have completed in all the major races on the west coast.

This is their first Hobart Race. Posman has secured talent, Richard Hudson and Sue Crafers from Sydney, who add knowledge and skills for competing in this 70th Anniversary Race.
