Another Painkiller

Another Painkiller is a sneaky Beneteau 44.7 sailed by a bunch of scurvy misfits from Southport Yacht Club who may need a few painkillers on celebrating finishing a race. Best known as Alacrity, the boat last went to Hobart in 2011 with Matt Percy at the helm, but retired with rig damage. Previous Hobart results with Percy include 20th overall for third in Division D in 2007 and 16th overall for third in Division D in 2006. Before that, the boat was Prime Time, launched for David Mason in 2004 and scored good results but ran aground before Percy bought and rebuilt it. Mason retired it from the tough 2004 Hobart, but skippered it to 31st overall in 2005.
