They might not be the fastest, but they are fun. Wave Sweeper, the former Chancellor, is a sail training yacht based in Rose Bay, which had the distinction of finishing last on line in 5 days 6hrs 8mins 30secs in the 2010 Rolex Sydney Hobart. However, her owner and crew took it in the stride and at least finished well in time to bring in the New Year. Last year was better, when Wave Sweeper swept into Constitution Dock, leaving 12 other competitors in her wake and bettering her time by 13 hours and placing 55th overall as opposed to her second last overall of the previous year.

Originally named Le Billet, the yacht won the Pittwater Coffs Harbour race for then owner, Bill Ebsary. Wave Sweeper likes to head north during the winter season to compete at Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island race weeks. This will be her seventh Rolex Sydney Hobart and Morgan Rogers and crew will be aiming to beat their result of last year.
