Unicef

This is a second Rolex Sydney Hobart for Unicef skipper Bob Beggs, who led Qingdao (now PSP Logistics) to 10th in the Clipper Division in 2015. Eight different nations are in the Unicef crew, including three Australians. Thom Fisher is returning for a second Hobart after racing on Unicef (current GREAT Britain), in 2015. Unicef is out to achieve a strong result this year after retiring from the 2013 Hobart with rudder damage and then placed last overall in 2015. This is the second time Unicef has joined forces with the Clipper Race to help make a safer world for children. It is the world’s leading children’s organisation, ensuring more children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation.
