The Yachts




Kerumba is a Ker designed racer/cruiser launched in July 2012 and this will be her first Rolex Sydney Hobart outing. With the majority of the crew stepping up from a Beneteau 44.7, the performance jump is being met with exhilaration in what has been described as a ‘Beneteau on steroids’. After an extensive commissioning period, Kerumba is now starting to demonstrate her design pedigree.

Finished fifth overall in IRC Division 1 of the Qantas Link Brisbane to Gladstone in March, was eighth in IRC Passage Division 1 in light weather at Hamilton Island and came back with a second in IRC Division 1 of the 2013 Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Race in August. Given the right weather in December, Tam Faragher and his sailing mates could receive a late Christmas present.
