The Yachts

Mondo

Ray Sweeney’s Sydney 38 was launched as Easy Tiger and rebranded in 2009 as Mondo and has sailed the east coast of Australia relentlessly over the last five years. From its home base at RQYS, Sweeney has campaigned the boat from Hamilton Island to Geelong and most of the ocean races and local regattas in between, including Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races in 2009 (retired to Eden with rig damage), 2011 (finished 42nd overall and sixth in the S38 division) and 2013 (38th overall and third in the Sydney 38 division). Sweeney and his boat are waiting for the right weather window in the 628nm race.
