This is the former Celestial, which finished 11th overall and second in Division 2 of last year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart, to win the CYCA’s BWPS in both IRC and ORCi classes, inclusive of overall victory in the 2014 Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race. Bruce ‘Blocka’ Foye and Sebastien Bohm purchased the Rogers 46 they renamed ‘The Goat’ and finished 48th overall in the 2015 Gold Coast race. The Goat went on to third overall in the Brisbane Keppel race and then finished fifth from six in IRC Division 1 at Airlie Beach Race Week, as they continued to learn to sail their new boat.
Foye comes from a successful Sydney 38 campaign with his previous ‘The Goat’. He sailed to 29th overall in the 2014 Gold Coast race after being penalised, but still won Division 3, beating nearest divisional rival, Ariel, by over two hours on corrected time. Major results include winning the Sydney 38 division of the 2007 Rolex Sydney Hobart, then second in 2008 and third in 2009 and also won the 2011 Sydney 38 Nationals. Foye significantly also won the 1993 Sydney Hobart overall under IOR with Wild Rose, in partnership with Roger Hickman and Lance Peckman.
