SYDNEY HOBART YACHT RACE 2017

SYDNEY HOBART YACHT RACE 2017

Sea Venture's customer, Mark Hipgrave, bought a new Sun Fast 3600 in 2016. He kept the boat in the UK and moved over from Melbourne to compete in the Solo Offshore Racing Club events.

Then, in 2017, he raced solo in the OSTAR from Plymouth to Newport R.I. in the USA, finishing 3rd overall, and surviving hurricane force winds which caused the abandonment & scuttling of 4 of the competing yachts.

The boat, “Mister Lucky”, has now safely arrived in Australia by ship and a team of 5 UK based Sun Fast owners, including our MD Nigel Colley, are on their way out to Australia to sail with Mark in the iconic Sydney Hobart Race, which starts on Boxing Day.

What makes this story interesting, is that all the crew own their own Sun Fast 3200 or 3600, and all are SOLO racers! Be sure to follow the race tracker this Christmas and see how they gel and compete as a fully crewed team?
