Previously sailed out of Adelaide and Hobart and now calls Port Phillip home. The crew aboard Audere is a family-and-friends affair – including skipper John Cain and Jenny Wright and their two daughters together with a group of close friends. There is experience on board though, with two of the crew having sailed the yacht Tilting at Windmills in the 1998 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. “This boat is a step up for the crew, but we are eager to take on the great challenge and add the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race to the list of achievements,” Cain says.
