- The Yachts
In 2019, Northern Beaches yachtsman, Ian Edwards, sailed Wings to 53rd overall with a blended male/female crew. In her first Rolex Sydney Hobart in 2018, Wings finished 47th. Launched in November 2017 for Lindy and Ian Edwards, this Dehler 46 is a comfortable fast cruising boat that also goes racing. In 2018, the well-travelled Wings sailed the RPAYC Pittwater to Paradise Race, Sydney Noumea and Groupama races, enjoyed some Pacific cruising, then competed at Airlie, Hamilton Island and SeaLink Magnetic Island race weeks. Edwards says: "We have built a great team. We will sail safe enjoy the journeys, and sail as fast as we can. In longer offshore races we always have the best boat food!"
