Local Hero


Local Hero is not new to the Rolex Sydney Hobart and neither is her skipper and owner Peter Mosely. Local Hero last raced in 2012 finishing with a fourth overall in PHS. In 2010 she placed a third in IRC Division 4.

This team is back and fully energised after another good result at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week in August, first in IRC Division 3 and the prestigious “Yacht of the Regatta”.
