The Olsen 40 has undergone a few mods in her lifetime and been around the Sydney Hobart course 18 times with former owner, Peter Rodgers. She’s last Hobart was 2013 when the Division 2 boat won PHS overall, beating all Division 1 boats into the bargain. She also won PHS in the 2009 and 2012 races. In the tough 2004 Hobart, this sturdy boat scored PHS fourth. She has contested 12 Sydney Lord Howe Island races, scoring divisional placings. Philip Bell purchased She and is giving her a new lease of life. He finished PHS fifth in the 2016 Sydney Gold Coast race, her first and Bell says he hopes to capitalise on Rodgers’ great record, so has ordered heavy wind.
