Extasea has been very prominent on the Victorian Offshore scene having won every offshore race over the past decade, culminating in winning the ORCV Offshore Championship four times. Has also conquered Bass Strait, winning the 100th anniversary Rudder Cup and First east coast Melbourne to Hobart Race. She has won her last four Melbourne to Hobart West Coast races with line and handicap honours.  Extasea has competed in the last three Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Races, but with running conditions the boat has had mixed success. “This year we are hoping for some upwind conditions which the boat and crew relish,” said Buchholz. “The crew are all hardened offshore sailors and a mixture of local RGYC members with a couple of valuable Queensland guys making up this great bunch of fun-loving sailors.”
