Art Equity Mahligai
This Sydney 46 has raced to Hobart four times now and has finished every one. Her last assault on the PHS trophy was in 2011 when Mahligai finished ninth overall in PHS. Her best result was in the 2010 race, when she was PHS fourth overall and won Division 1, racing as NSC Mahligai. In 2009, was third in Division 1, while in 2008, sailed under IRC and finished 61st overall.
Has competed in the CYCA’s Ocean Pointscore Series and Club Marine Wednesday Twilight Series over the past two seasons and under PHS, won the opening 2013 OPS race to Lion Island return. Mahligai also finished second in PHS Division 2 of the 2011 Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race after winning PHS Division 1 in 2009. This year is contesting some OPS races to be race ready.
Before Murray Owen and Jenny Kings owned Mahligai, she spent most of her life racing in Asia. She is berthed at the CYCA where her owners are members, but will race under the burgee of the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club in New Zealand, in a nod to Owen and Kings’ place of birth.
