Andrew and Linda Weiss’s Sydney 43, Christopher Dragon, enjoyed a standout 2015 season on the USA’s east coast. She won two distance races, finishing first in her IRC class at the NYYC’s annual regatta (she won all four races and led at every mark in all), second in IRC 1 in the Marblehead Halifax Race and first in IRC 2 at Block Island Race Week, with five wins and six second’s – only super maxi Comanche toppled her for the overall win. Now Weiss is coming to tackle the Sydney Hobart for the first time, where they will face Comanche again. Weiss is an experienced yachtsman and can count 22 Block Island Race Weeks among his other races, but all aboard are Sydney Hobart novices.
