The Goat


The Goat is arguably the most successful Sydney 38, winning the 2011 Sydney 38 National Regatta Titles in Melbourne, the 2007 Rolex Sydney Hobart One Design Class and the 2008 Sydney Gold Race Race, plus numerous club races and championships. Recent modifications now allow The Goat to compete with other competitors such as the First 40’s.

In 2013, The Goat crew represented the CYCA at the prestigious New York Yacht Club’s International Invitational Cup with a top 10 finish. The Goat ownership has now been expanded with the addition of three new owners from Gunnedah, Tony Clift, Andrew Byrne and Daniel Hawkins. Tony owns a “small” 1,500,000 cattle property in the middle of Australia which he boasts as being the furtherest property to any ocean in Australia! The enthusiasm of the new owners and the experience of long time partners Mitchell Gordon and Bruce Foye will ensure that The Goat will be a serious contender for a divisional win.
