Last year this Carkeek 60, Ichi Ban, was sailed by John Winning Jr, renamed Winning Appliances, and placed fourth overall for second in Division 1; its best Sydney Hobart result to-date. Prior to the 2018 race, Matt Allen scored eighth overall for third in Division 1 in the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart, 63rd in 2014, and eighth for second in Division 0 in 2015. He also took line/overall honours in the inaugural Newcastle Bass Island Race, creating the record which super maxi Comanche broke in 2018. In 2015, Ichi Ban took the line/overall double in the Cabbage Tree Island Race, breaking the conventional ballast yacht record, which still holds, and has held the conventional ballast record in the Port Hacking Bird Islet Race since 2013.
