Ragamuffin

 

Brenton Fischer keeps the Fischer and Ragamuffin names alive in the 2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart, having entered his legendary grandfather Syd’s TP52, Ragamuffin. He missed the race last year but skippered the yacht in the 2015 and 2016 races. “I’m really looking forward to doing the race again. We’ll be competitive - I’ll pretty much have the same crew as last time, like Clinton Wade-Lehmann. He’s helping me put the boat and crew together,” said the 34-year-old, whose Hobart debut was 2014 on his grandfather’s super maxi, Ragamuffin 100. Last raced in 2016 for 49th overall, but the previous year were relegated from provisionally 2nd overall to 38th after colliding with Ark32 at the start.
