Wax Lyrical

Wax Lyrical finished third overall in PHS and second in Division 2 of the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart. In 2014 she was PHS fifth overall, her first attempt at the race. Les Goodridge and his X-50 won PHS in the 2015 Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, but retired from the race this year, when first a crew member dropped out and then engine problems developed. Finished PHS third overall in the CYCA’s 2014/2015 Ocean Pointscore. Wax Lyrical appears to be edging closer to a Hobart PHS victory, judging by past performances.
