Martela

Martela

 

Martela is an IMX38 which was imported from the United States and competed in last year's Rolex Sydney Hobart with a 10th in IRC Division 4 and ORCi Division 3. Recently, Martela won the Bellerive Yacht Club's Isle of Caves race in both IRC and AMS categories after finishing an impressive fourth across the line, only 24 minutes astern of line honours winner. One of just five Tasmanian yachts in the race, Martela has also been scoring wins in the Combined Clubs Long Race Series and third in the Bay of Fires Channel Race, as she continues to race locally in the lead-up to 'the big one' on Boxing Day. Because of her size, she won't be among the front markers, but her crew members have the experience to make their mark.
