Alive is registered with the Derwent Sailing Squadron, Tasmania. Purchased at the start of 2014 by Phillip Turner, a Tasmanian businessman. She has broken several long-standing race records and filled the trophy cabinet with east coast Australia races before heading to Southeast Asia mid 2017 for the Asian Series. She has now returned and looking forward to east coast Australia racing, including the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. Formerly Black Jack designed by Reichel/Pugh and a near sister ship to Wild Oats X. Last raced in 2016 when she was 17th overall and eighth across the line. Experienced and well-travelled crew under owner Phillip Turner and skipper Duncan Hine, she will be amongst the top place getters.
