With Robin Hawthorn’s son Hamish taking the boat to Hobart last year, Imagination finished the 2015 Hobart 10th overall and second in Division 3 and sixth overall under ORCi. Prior to 2015, Robin Hawthorn skippered Imagination in two Hobarts, placing ninth overall in 2009 and 14th overall in 2014, when joined by sons, Hamish and Campbell, for their first Hobart after the trio won the Bird Island race earlier in December. The Beneteau 47.7 also won the 2015/2016 Grant Thornton Combined Pointscore after winning the Short Ocean Pointscore under PHS (the major trophy) and IRC. Robin finished eighth overall and won Division 3 in the 2016 Sydney Gold Coast Race. This is a well-raced boat.
