Terra Firma, since winning the race in 1995, has always been a strong competitor. After winning the Summer and Winter series in Melbourne, Terra Firma is looking for a good result in this year’s RSHYR. The skipper and crew have complete faith in their Cookson 50 as a tough boat that is very capable of success in the difficult conditions normally experienced in the south east coast. The 50-foot division is one of the best positioned for IRC success and has well campaigned yachts all competing very hard. Terra Firma is a fixed keel version of the Cookson 50’s and is keen to do well with an experienced close crew with great camaraderie.
