Sailors with disAbilities

 

Since 2010, the Sailors With Disabilities team has been sailing the TP52, Wot Eva (the former Wot Yot, which was generously donated to SWD by wotif.com co-founder Graeme Wood), to Hobart with mixed success. This year, the crew is back to sailing it’s work horse, the Lyons 54 that won PHS in the 2007 Hobart after winning PHS in the 2006 Sydney Mooloolaba race and scoring second in the inaugural Sydney Mackay Yacht Race in 2006. Pescud and crew famously also won PHS overall in the fatal 1998 Hobart with a former yacht.
