The Goat

Bruce Foye and Sebastian Bohm purchased the former Celestial in 2015, renaming her The Goat and finished 34th overall and fourth in Division 2 of the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart. In 2016, finished fourth in Division 1 at the 2016 Sydney Harbour Regatta, second in the NSW IRC Championship and 12th overall for Division 2 second in the Sydney Gold Coast race. With a Sydney 38 of the same name, Foye placed 29th overall in the 2014 Gold Coast race, despite being penalised, and still won Division 3 by over two hours. He also won the Sydney 38 division in the 2007 Hobart, was second in 2008 and third in 2009, and won the 2011 Sydney 38 Nationals. With partners Roger Hickman and Lance Peckman, Foye won the 1993 Hobart overall under IOR (in conjunction with an IMS winner) with Wild Rose.

In the 2014 Hobart, as ADA Celestial, Sam Haynes skippered her to 11th overall and second in Division 2 to win the CYCA’s BWPS in both IRC and ORCi classes, inclusive of overall victory in the 2014 Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race.
