Triton’s, an LC60, retired from the last two Hobarts, 2015 with sail damage in 2014 with forestay damage. An excellent yacht, she is the former Vanguard, purchased by Michael Cranitch and David Gotze from Dick Cawse in August 2014. Triton finished 20th overall for third in Division 0 in the 2016 Sydney Gold Coast race. As Vanguard, she proved herself, ship, winning line, overall and PHS honours in the CYCA Ocean Point Score when brand new. She also wrapped up the 2009/2010 OPS. Cranitch and Gotze have campaigned yachts before - the former with Broomstick, the latter with Volvo 60 Indec. The pair has also competed on the Farr 40 circuit together. Tony Ellis will contest his 48th Hobart on Triton.
