Last Tango

 

Wendy Tuck, who is currently skippering Da Nang Viet Nam in the Clipper Round the World race, skippered this yacht in the Rolex Sydney Hobart last year and retired around 8pm on the first night after having to drop off a crew member who had suffered a hernia, and because the boat had torn sails. It also retired from the 2014 Sydney Gold Coast race, which it did not compete in this year. In the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart Last Tango placed 59th on line and 25th in ORCi. She is a cruising design from AD Boats in Croatia, based on their Salona 45 series and specifically designed as a heavy weather working boat. She has been modified to gain greater upwind performance.
