This Radford 12 last raced to Hobart in 2013, resulting in 44th overall. She scooped third in IRC Division 3 in the 2010 Rolex Sydney Hobart after finishing 26th overall; her best result so far. She was 44th in 2008, 49th in 2009, 58th in 2011 and ORCI 12th overall in 2012. It’s good to see the well-used and well-sailed Copernicus back. She has pulled out decent results in major races in the past, such as winning the 2010 Tasman Pointscore, placing second overall in the 2011 Sydney Offshore Newcastle Yacht Race and the same year, second in the Gosford Lord Howe Island Race, in which she formerly scored divisional third places in both 2009 and 2010. In between major races, Zyner races her at Manly Yacht Club.
