Julian Farren-Price is a household name in Australia as a jeweller and in sailing, swapping business suits for sailing attire at the weekends. The Sydney yachtsman famously won an unprecedented 10 CYCA Ocean Pointscore Series’ with his former About Time, a Cookson 12. “After 17 wonderful years, it was ‘about time’ for a new challenge, and what better than a Cookson 12 than a Cookson 50,” says Farren-Price, who is happy with their second places in the last two OPS series’. This boat is the former Living Doll/Shogun/Terra Firma, which last raced to Hobart in 2016, as Terra Firma, and finished 31st overall for fourth in Division 1. Farren-Price sailed her to second in Division 2 in the 2019 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Race and eighth overall in September’s Flinders Islet Race.
