Commonly known as Aussie Maid, she has tackled races from Sydney to Hobart, to Cowes Week in the UK and Antigua Raceweek in the Caribbean, spanning a 35 year racing career. Her best results come in the Asian Regattas, winning numerous Darwin to Ambon Races and at least once in her class at the Raja Muda, Kings Cup, Rolex China Sea Race and Singapore Straits. Would be perfect for long distance racing enthusiasts and sail training classes embarking on crew training exercises. Over the years several make over’s have been preformed by replacing the keel, rudder, steering system, mast, rigging, performance yet durable racing sails and fully optimising the IRC rating to suite her age and competitiveness.

Lots of History and Silverware with this boat!!!
