Huw Fernie, who was second in command on CV5 in the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart, is the skipper of Visit Seattle, which Matt Mitchell skippered to 66th overall, 15th in Division 1 and ninth in the Clipper division of the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart, under the name Mission Performance. Among Fernie’s crew is Ana Downer-Duprey who suffered brain damage and paralysis in her left leg as a result of a rugby accident at 18. She recovered, but was injured again in a car crash. The idea of racing round the world sparked a passion in her and helped her on the road to recovery. Considering what she has been through and overcome, the Rolex Sydney Hobart should be a piece of pie.
