A Hobart first timer, Joe Mele named Triple Lindy for Rodney Dangerfield's famous dive in the movie ‘Back to School’. In the past year alone he has competed in the Marblehead to Halifax Race and Key West Race Week, placing second in both and won his class at Charleston Race Week. Triple Lindy was sixth in class at the 2015 Rolex Swan Cup. Mele has also contested four of Newport Bermuda and Marion Bermuda races and others. Crew consists of three Americans, six Canadians and one Brit. This will be their first Australian race experience. After the race, Triple Lindy will cruise Tasmania before being shipped to Europe for the 2017 Rolex Fastnet and Rolex Middle Sea races.
