Wax Lyrical

 

Wax Lyrical produced a PHS fifth overall and fifth in Division 2 in the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart, her first attempt at the race, although Les Goodridge had contested a handful. Next up, she won PHS in the 2015 Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race after finishing fifth overall the previous year. Finished PHS third overall after 10 races in the CYCA’s 2014/2015 Ocean Pointscore in March and third overall in Division A1 of the 2015 Land Rover Winter Series, then won PHS in the Newcastle Bass Island Race in October. The boat is well-named, as Goodridge is very enthusiastic about his boat, which appears to be edging closer to a Hobart PHS overall win if her last few races are good indicators.
