- The Yachts
Felicity Nelson and Alex Seja have purchased Supernova from Matthew Hanning who was a consistent performer out of Middle Harbour Yacht Club. Nelson and Seja make the move from sailing the race on other yachts, such as Azzurro and Arch Rival, to make their own mark on the race with this Sydney 36. Nelson has 24 Hobarts to her credit; it would have been 26 but for the withdrawal of her ride in 2018 and the cancellation of last year’s race, This year’s race means she becomes just the second woman to make the ’25 Hobarts’ board, joining the famed Adrienne Cahalan. Seja and Nelson, both proficient yachties, now hold their destiny in their own hands.
