Wild Side

Wild Side


Wild Side, one of the smallest yachts in the fleet, will be competing this year for a second time, hoping to improve on their previous 30th place on IRC. Aiming for an improved result the Wild Side crew is not short on experience having previously won the Melbourne to Hobart on AMS. 

Skipper Martin Vaughan has competed in three Rolex Sydney Hobarts and recently competed in and won IRC division in the 2013 Melbourne to Osaka two-handed ocean race on Cadibarra 8. Backed up by watch lead Graeme Arthur, who has two Rolex Sydney Hobart’s under his belt, helps lead a crew of extremely experienced, multi-talented ocean racers. Regular racers in Bass Strait, this small but capable boat could well surprise.
