Abracadabra

Finished PHS eighth overall and sixth in Division 2 of last year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart, but Abracadabra scored her best result in 2015, when James Murchison skippered his PHS Division 2 boat to overall PHS victory, defeating all Division 1 boats in the process. The Tripp 47 finished seventh overall in 1996, with all her other Hobarts were sailed under PHS for 13th in 2006, 18th in 2008, 14th in 2010, seventh in 2012 and 10th in 2014. Recently finished PHS sixth overall in the 2017 Sydney Gold Coast race. Abracadabra has also contested the Melbourne Osaka double handed race amongst others.
