The Royal Australian Navy is sailing this Beneteau First 40 that was launched as ‘Lunchtime Legend’ for Robbo Robertson in August 2011. That year she won IRC Division 2 of the Rolex Trophy Rating Series and was third in IRC Division 4 of the Rolex Sydney Hobart – finishing with the exact same corrected overall time as sistership, Two True, which won the Rolex Sydney Hobart in 2009. In 2012, Robbo won IRC Division 3 after finishing 17th overall in the Rolex Sydney Hobart. The boat was sold and became Outlaw and the Navy has renamed her again, Navy One, after purchasing her for sail training. The boat has been used for the previous three years for initial entry officer sail training for the RAN at HMAS Creswell in Jarvis Bay. This is this first Navy entry in the race for the last 10 years.
