The Prospector team and family have been methodically ticking off our bucket list of some of the world’s great ocean races including so far, the Transatlantic Race, Middle Sea, Fastnet, Pineapple Cup and Pac Cup. The team have been fortunate to finish on the podium more often than not, including winning overall and setting the course record in the Marblehead to Halifax race. “Many view the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race as the pinnacle in our sport and we figured we had to come and try out against the best so here we are!” Explained Paul McDowell. The team is unique in that there are four equal owners (Larry Landry, Paul McDowell, Dave Siwicki and Marty Roesch) and mostly sail with a Corinthian crew of friends. “While fun is always at the top of the agenda, we take it seriously and have the results to show for it. Our task is made immeasurably easier by our terrific boat which gives us the platform to excel in nearly any conditions. The Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will be a serious test for us, but we feel up to the challenge,” says McDowell.
