Paul Buchholz’s Extasea last headed south in 2014, finishing 29th overall. Beforehand, she finished 17th in 2010. The DK46 made her Sydney Gold Coast debut in late July and finished 38th overall. These are seasoned yachtie who have won every local offshore race over the past 12 years, culminating in winning the ORCV Offshore Championship four times. In December 2015 Extasea took line honours in the Melbourne to Hobart race for the fourth time between 2011-2015, excluding 2014, when Buchholz contested the Rolex Sydney Hobart and finished 29th overall. She is a great addition to a strong Victorian squad.
