Owner David Stephenson, who was part of the 2004 Rolex Sydney Hobart overall winning crew of Aera, has campaigned Matangi extensively in long offshore passages such as the Melbourne – Stanley and Melbourne – Launceston races, but it’s been two years since the boat took on a Rolex Sydney Hobart. Matangi was presented with the TasPorts Cup for being the first Tasmanian entrant to finish on corrected time in the Rolex Sydney Hobart 2007. She is one of seven Tasmanian entries this year and boasts a crew of experienced offshore racers.
