This Sydney 38, Faster Forward, was recently purchased from Peter Taylor by Matt Fahey, and relocated to her new home in Melbourne at the RYCV in Williamstown. She was originally John Winning’s Yandoo before being bought by Getaway Sailing which chartered the yacht to Jackie Moores who renamed it Lexar for the 2004 Rolex Sydney Hobart and finished 33rd overall. As Getaway Sailing 2, she was 59th in 2007 and 21st PHS in 2008. As Deloitte as One, the boat was 31st in 2011. The Faster Forward team is looking to build a solid, reliable crew for local and offshore races over the next few years. Faster Forward finished PHS 11th in the Melbourne to Hobart Westcoaster.
