Concubine

Launched late in in 2015, Concubine finished the Hobart 39th overall, following up with second to Secret Men’s Business at 2016 Port Lincoln Race Week, but retired from the 2016 Sydney Gold Coast race after a collision after the start. Bad luck continued when the Mills 45’s rig broke in an Adelaide race, forcing Jason Ward to withdraw her from last year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart. Back on track, Concubine finished 33rd overall in the 2017 Sydney Gold Coast race and fourth overall in the Flinders Islet Race, retiring from the Newcastle Bass Island Race. In 2014, Ward, following many years of one-design racing, contested his first Sydney Hobart with wife, Shevaun Bruland aboard their former Concubine, a Beneteau First 40 (now racing as Bravo) and finished 43rd overall.
