After competing in 27 previous Sydney Hobart Yacht Races Greg Prescott has been able to make a last-minute entry with his newly acquired Farr40 to take on the great race. “I believe I was the last boat to enter, right on five o’clock,” said Prescott. At the start of his career he was the second youngest to skipper a boat in the Sydney Hobart Race at just 17 years old, he is looking to the future and being able to sail with his son as crew in next year’s 75th Race. The crew has worked tirelessly to get the boat modified from a one-design racing yacht to an offshore racer and ready to take on what mother nature can throw at it.
