Icefire returned to racing in last year's Rolex Sydney Hobart after a six year absence. A downwind flyerIcefirehas been a very competitive boat since her launch in 1988 and has many podium finishes in her race history log. New owners, Peter Tucker, Alan 'Big Al' Mather, Thyge Trafford-Jones and Malcolm Griffiths, are looking forward to campaigning Icefire in this year's race. However, Mather, from the host club, is fully aware downwind flying in the Rolex Sydney Hobart is not likely to be on the cards - but you never know. He also knows that while the yacht was up there with the best when she was launched, Icefire is now over 20 and does not rate well against some of the newer boats.
