Quetzalcoatl

Beautifully built of King Billy pine, this bright yellow former Tasmanian boat is improving with every outing. Under her owners Antony Sweetapple, Anthony Bruce and James Lee Warner, Quetzalcoatl finished fifth in the 2014 Hobart. She returned after two years especially for the 70th edition and finished PHS second overall and third in the Corinthian division after winning PHS overall in 2011. Quetzalcoatl has competed competitively over the past 13 years under PHS; however 2011 was special with victories in the Sydney Newcastle Offshore race, Gosford Lord Howe Island Race and ending with their Hobart win.
