In her first Sydney Hobart attempt last year, Freyja only made it halfway up the Harbour, retiring after blowing out a headsail while at the back of the fleet. Dr Richard Lees will be better prepared this time. His daughter and son-in- law purchased Freyja, launched in San Francisco Bay, which required major repairs, so Lees and his wife became partners to help. Since relaunching, she has been to three Australian Wooden Boat Festivals in Tassie. The two families are keen to tick the Sydney Hobart off their bucket list and have otherwise used Freyja for family holidays and races out of their club.
