The two had virtually match raced the whole 628 nautical miles. She raced again in 2012 and finished 25th overall, one place behind Two True again. This will be her first Hobart since, but Wicked has scored numerous successes, including winning Division 3 in the 2011 Sydney Gold Coast race. She has also prospered in local club championships. Will have great competition from Two True, Bravo and other B40s in the race. Olympic sailor Krystal Weir joins the crew.
