- The Yachts
John Willoughby and his crew sailed this red hulled yacht all the way from South Australia before heading to Hobart in 2014, and finished 19th overall, fourth in Division 4, third in the Veterans 30 Year and fourth in the Veterans 20 Year divisions. They will sail the yacht to Sydney again this year, putting in solid offshore miles up front, which helped account for their good result in 2014. Enchantress is home-designed and built of cold moulded cedar frames and stringers. In her first Hobart in 2012, she was 19th overall and third in Division 4, when owned by her designer, John Muirhead. Since launching, Enchantress has been cruised and raced, inclusive of 20 Adelaide Port Lincoln races and winning the 2010 Melbourne to Hobart West Coaster under IRC, PHS and AMS. Built to perform downwind, Enchantress can handle her share of hard on the nose stuff too.
