The Right Boat
Hugh had recently purchased a Cookson 12. Based on our research of the last 20 Sydney to Hobart results, statistically it was unlikely to deliver a podium in the Hobart, but it was a great training and crew selection platform. Further research concluded that we needed a Reichel Pugh design in the 60 to 70foot range. (For those interested in our strategy here - go read “Moneyball”).
