Eighty two year-old Syd Fischer, a legend in ocean racing history, is contesting his 47th offshore season with his latest Ragamuffin, a TP52 originally from San Diego. Fischer won the Sydney Hobart overall in 1992 and took line honours twice with his German Frers-designed maxi Ragamuffin, in 1988 and 1990 and has completed 40 Hobarts. Fischer was the CYCA’s Blue Water Champion (2007-2008), the ninth time he has held this coveted title.
