Menace was designed by Dennis Phillips and built by John Simpson, Niven James and friends. Menace was launched in June and is owned by Niven and Angi James and raced out of Lake Macquarie Yacht Club. Her maiden race was the Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race and she is currently competing in the CYCA’s Blue Water Pointscore Series and the LMYC Offshore series. Menace is a sister ship to Sharkface and will be skippered by John Simpson and crewed by Lake Macquarie sailors who are looking forward to competing in the boat's debut Rolex Sydney Hobart.
