Da Nang - Vietnam
Da Nang – Vietnam is skippered by Sydney sailor and sailing instructor, Wendy Tuck, who has notched up eight Hobart races already. Tuck will steer the former Invest Africa, which was skippered to 69th overall, 17th in Division 1 and 11th in the Clipper division by Rich Gould in the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart. Aboard the boat with Aussie flavour is Australia soldier, Craig Baylis, who is finally fulfilling an ambition to race across an ocean. Joining him is Bridget Keevil, a British travel agent and novice sailor. She has visited most places on the Clipper route - but never sailed into them. Da Nang is a first time sponsor, and Tuck is the most experienced Hobart skipper, so will be keen to make an impression.
