- The Yachts
Mayfair, the former ‘Take Flight’, is a Rolex Sydney Hobart rookie. She was purchased by James Irvine to campaign in all east coast and local races as a build up for Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Irvine has put together an experienced, but colourful crew of local characters, who if led well, have the ability to do the boat justice. Mayfair was third in Queensland’s 2014 Beneteau Cup and finished 14th overall from 16 competitors in the 2015 Brisbane to Keppel Yacht Race, having better luck the previous year when she was 12th overall from 25 entries, in her first blue outing under Irvine’s leadership. Have imported Ian ‘Ox’ Davis, an veteran Hobart yachtsman.
