In 2013, her last Sydney Hobart, Jazz Player partnered with the Think Pink Foundation to raise awareness for breast cancer support and finished 31st overall. In previous Hobarts she placed 67th in 2008, retired with a damaged main in 2010, but placed 41st for third in Division 2 in 2011 – her best result to-date. A comfortable and quick Bakewell cruiser/racer, she finished 12th in division in 2012, after the wind shut the gate on the smaller yachts and then threw a hard southerly at them. Owner Andrew Lawrence is a doctor in medical imaging who fits sailing in around work. His finest hour was taking line and overall IRC double in the 2009 Melbourne to Hobart West Coast Race.
