The Yachts




Ervin Vidor, a member of the CYCA since 1975, returns for the 75th Sydney Hobart with his elegantly appointed CNB 76. Charlotte is embarking on her second Rolex Sydney Hobart after contesting her first in 2016. In her debut she finished 15th overall in PHS and sixth in Division 1.

Built in France in 2015, Charlotte has called the CYCA home since her arrival into Australian waters. After recently completing a seven-month tour of the South Pacific, the yacht, Vidor and crew are looking forward to switching modes and racing toward Hobart on Boxing Day. With a multitude of Hobart’s onboard and new sails, Charlotte is forecast to be a hot contender for divisional placings.
