The Yachts

PYR-ArnoldCo/Wot Eva

UK-based race charter business Performance Yacht Racing, headed by Andy Middleton, has chartered the TP52 Wot Eva for the third year in a row to compete in the Sydney Hobart. Skippered by Christian Reynolds this time, the crew consists of keen paying amateurs with a varied mix of ability from around the world. The company offers individuals the chance to race in fantastic international events, believing that with the right training and motivation, 'anyone can do it'. In the 2016 Hobart they placed PHS 14th overall and fifth in Division 1 and as GYR Wot Eva, retired from the 2015 race. 

Sailors With DisAbilities has raced and trained on this TP52, (the former Yassou/Glory/Wot Yot), generously donated to SWD by wotif.com co-founder Graeme Wood, who contested three Hobarts (2006, 2007, 2008) since 2010, when SWD head David Pescud retired her from the 2010 race, but finished 47th overall in 2014 with a PHS 16th in the 2012 race.
