Black Adder

 

Black Adder is a Sigma 41 that was designed and built in the UK. Sigma Yachts built the boat in 1985 and it contested three Rolex Fastnet races in the early 2000’s with her previous English owners. A comfortable and seaworthy cruiser/racer, Australian owner James Clayton cruised the masthead rigged sloop from the UK to Australia via the Atlantic and Panama Canal and across the Pacific from 2010 to 2012. Following her first tilt at the Rolex Sydney Hobart in December, Clayton will cruise the yacht to her new home in Fremantle, Western Australia, where she will spend a bit of time sailing on the Swan River.
