Stephane Howarth purchased Mille Sabords in May 2010 and began racing in local waters, including one-design events. She was the first women skipper to cross the line in the 2010 Rolex Sydney Hobart and was awarded the Jane Tate Memorial Trophy as a result. Was fourth in the Sydney 38 Division that year, and raced to Hobart again in 2011 with a 40th overall and seventh in the Sydney 38 Division.
In May this year, Mille Sabords scored seventh overall in the ORCV Offshore Championship, and in August, finished third overall in the Alan Shiels Winter Series on Port Phillip, giving the crew some tight round the buoys racing to tighten up boat handling skills.
Finished seventh in the 2012 Victorian Sydney 38 One Design Championship and has previously contested six Melbourne to Hobart Yacht Races. Mille Sabords has participated in all major races and One Design events in Port Phillip Bay and Frenchwoman, Howarth, has again assembled a multinational crew to take on the 628 nautical mile race.
