Fruit Salid 3
Queenslander Mark Drobitko purchased Fruit Salid 3 in Southampton, England, in 2016. The Beneteau First 40 was then sailed to Australia, arriving in late 2017. The passage highlights included first place in the 2016 ARC+ Atlantic Crossing, Caribbean Sea cruising, Grenada Race Week, Panama Canal transit, Pacific Ocean, and time taken enjoying the tranquility of ocean crossings and life at sea. Her Queensland owner says Fruit Salid 3 is in tip-top condition. Her crew are currently working towards the boat’s first Rolex Sydney Hobart campaign, having originally signed on for last year’s race which was cancelled. The boat’s intended name was ‘Fruit Salad’, but a few drinks later, the spelling changed.
