Enchantress

Each time she competes, Enchantress’ crew sail her from South Australia to Sydney before heading to Hobart – a great way to test the boat and put some ocean miles away. In 2016, she finished 20th overall, scoring fourth in Division 4 and in the Corinthian division. In 2015 she was 23rd overall, and in 2014, 19th overall for fourth in Division 4, third in the Veterans 30 Year and fourth in the Veterans 20 Year. In 2012, her first Hobart, she was 19th for third in Division 4 and has also done 21 Adelaide Port Lincoln races, placing 11th overall this year. The Muirhead 11 has also won the 2010 Melbourne to Hobart under IRC, PHS and AMS. John Muirhead designed and built the red timber hulled Enchantress to be fast downwind.
