In the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart, Phil Molony sailed Papillon to 28th overall. The previous year, the yachtsman marked his milestone 25th Sydney Hobart with 17th overall. After contesting many Hobarts, Molony took the plunge in 2007, purchasing his first Papillon, upgrading to his latest version in 2010 and finished the 2011 Hobart 19th overall, followed by 31st in 2012 and 19th in 2013. Recently, Papillon was 47th overall in the slow moving Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race. Race veteran, Ralph Carlier, is aboard for his 34th.
