Local Hero

Local Hero


Local Hero continues to remain highly competitive both offshore and inshore. Owner Peter Mosely has been campaigning strongly throughout the past couple of seasons and has notched up some good results. Third in division in the 2010 Rolex Sydney Hobart, Local Hero ended fifth in division in the 2010 Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, scored a PHS overall and divisional win in the 2010 Brisbane to Keppel Yacht Race and was second in division at Airlie Beach Race Week.

From there, Mosely followed up with a divisional win at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, placed fourth in the 2010 Audi IRC Australian Championship and was the lucky winner of the Audi A5 Sportback in the Drive Challenge. After the exhilaration of this year's Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, where the yacht finished fourth overall in PHS, the boat and crew are looking forward to some great rides and challenges that this race can serve up.
