- The Yachts
This is the former Concubine (original owner Jason Ward finished 43rd in the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart) and Bravo (placed 14th in 2016 to win Division 3 under Robbo Robertson ownership). Her latest owner, Mark Gorbatov, joined others retiring on the first night last year after posting 82nd in his first Rolex Sydney Hobart with the Beneteau First 40 in 2019. Placing 15th in the 2022 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race for fourth in Division 3. An ophthalmologist, one might assume the name ‘Blink’ comes from Gorbatov’s profession, but it was in fact named by his young daughter, for the Dr Who episode titled ‘Don’t Blink’.
