Blue Water Tracks
Formerly known as Trybooking.com, Grant Dunoon and crew retired the Moody 54DS from its last Rolex Sydney Hobart in 2015, after damaging the bow thruster, but finished the 2014 race PHS 16th overall. Last year, he and Sue Bumstead finished Australia’s longest ocean race, the 5500nm double-handed Melbourne Osaka race, PHS 16th overall. Joining the crew this year are Annette Hesselmans and her husband Gerard Snijders, who also did the Melbourne Osaka last year, and two totally unrelated guys by the name of Paul Jenkins! This luxury boat boasts four main cabins and accommodates a crew of 12. In 2012, Dunoon and three crew members received the AMSA SAR (Search and Rescue) award after risking their lives to rescue survivors from a sunken competitor in the Melbourne Port Fairy Race, battling huge swells and gusts of up to 70 knots in the middle of the night.
