Two Rolex Sydney Hobarts under the belt now for Moody Buoys, a new boat for Trevor Richardson in 2014 when they finished 56th in ORCi and 13th in Division 3. In 2016, the Moody 54DS design finished a respectable third in PHS for third in Division 2. This boat replaced Richardson’s former yacht, Local Buoys, and is a sistership to (now Blue Water Tracks), which contested the 2014 and 2015 Hobarts and is back again. Both yachts are from Victoria, this one from Geelong, and her owner and skipper say: “Moody Buoys are excited to be doing their third Rolex Sydney Hobart and competing against the other Moody's.” There are three in the race, so they will have a good competition. Trevor’s son Stuart is in the skipper role again.
