Murray and Jenny will be taking their yacht Mahligai to Hobart for the 11th time. A number of crew are back from previous Hobarts with Mahligai. History shows some good success in PHS, with 2 previous divisional wins. The Kiwi owners live in Sydney and race out of the CYCA, but are representing Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club in a nod to their heritage. This Sydney 46 has finished all 11 of her Sydney Hobarts - a great track record. The racing campaign is supported by Super Charge Batteries. The Mahligai crew are raising money for a number of charities as part of the 75th race: Conquer Cystic Fibrosis, Zero to Hero for suicide prevention and The Blackdog Institute.
