Sailors with disAbilities
This TP52 last went to Hobart in 2010 under the name Wot Eva after sustaining damage in the Flinders Islet Race last year and not being repaired in time. David Pescud and his crew unusually did not finish the 2010 race due to engine problems. Now the boat is back, going by the name Sailors with disABILITIES, which is the name Pescud has used for former yachts to denote his mostly disabled crews. Pescud famously won PHS overall in the fatal 1998 race, proving once and for all that they are just as competitive and capable as the next boat. Returned to ocean racing in this year's Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race and finished 18th overall.
