Leith Group Developments bought Dodgeball from Queenslander John Warlow in February. The boat has been racing in RQYS events, keeping the crew together until they could get to Sydney. Leith Group Developments raced the Rolex Sydney Hobart in 2019, and renamed Ocean Crusaders Dodgeball, she placed 20th for third in Division 6 and went on to win Division 3 of the 2020 Australian Yachting Championships in Hobart. Skipper for the race this year is Ray Sweeney (former owner of the Sydney 38, Mondo).
