Sydney to Hobart ‘Team Wicked’

It has been an exciting month of sailing onboard team Wicked from Sandringham Yacht Club. Firstly I need to thank Mike & Mark Welsh for letting their boat make the journey & also the amount of work they did in preparing her for the race.  The preparation required to finish a Sydney to Hobart (S2H) is incredible. It's more like a roller coast ride on the way to the start line then in the race.  We started in early December with the boats delivery to Sydney from Melbourne- it was a fun trip around the far Eastern corner of Victoria where we were hit with a fun 40knots & hit a new boat speed record for a Beneteau 40 going 21knots!! We then motored 18hours straight...

Womens World Hobie16 Champions

Krystal Weir and Georgia Warren-Myers from Australia won the Hobie 16 Women’s World Championship and were thrilled to have achieved their goal. “ The Hobie 16 Worlds has been awesome. We’ve been lucky to have a small but really competitive fleet to race against. I’ve had my champ crew with me, Georgia. On day one communication was a bit tricky for us because we haven’t sailed together much. On day two we changed things a lot and we were able to get it together.“ Georgia said, “ Things started changing in the third race of the first day. We kind of had a bit more discussion and the breeze got up a little bit and we just hit our element, because the only times that we really had...
