This will be Ian Creak and Pennant Hills Ford’s maiden Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race; however, he has assembled a crew of regular offshore yachties who have been aboard with him in the CYCA’s Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race over the last few years. They finished 22nd overall and 11th in Division 3 in this year’s race, a difficult affair which had many succumbing to the extremely light breeze that beset the race. It was an improvement on their 44th overall and divisional 12th of the previous year.

Creak and his crew, regulars in the CYCA Winter Series, are looking forward to a hard slog to Hobart aboard this Beneteau 47.7 originally campaigned as Caliban II.
