The Yachts

PYR Wot Eva

Andy Middleton chartered and raced this yacht last year as GYR Wot Eva, but retired and is back chartering the same yacht, renaming her Performance Racing. Since 2010, Sailors With Disabilities (SWD) has raced and trained on this TP52, (the former Yassou, Glory and Wot Yot), kindly donated to SWD by wotif.com co-founder Graeme Wood, who contested four Hobarts (2006,2007, 2008, 2010) with it. SWD, led by David Pescud, finished the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart 47th overall in IRC and eighth in Division 1 with this boat and PHS 16th in 2012. Middleton has chartered various boats for the race over the years, crewing them with experienced yachties and paying crew.
