Abracadabra last went to Hobart in 2010 and finished last overall in PHS, so James Murchison and his crew can only go up from there. In August, Abracadabra finished fifth overall in the Sydney Amateur Sailing Club's Lion Island Race and was sixth overall in Division 1 PHS of the Grant Thornton Short Ocean Race in early November, as she continues her work up to the Rolex Sydney Hobart. A comfortably sized Tripp 47, she had her Hobart debut in 1996. Over the past few years Murchison and his crew have tended to take on the Hobart race every alternate year.
