This will be Pretty Woman’s second Rolex Sydney Hobart. Her only other was in 2007 when she finished 25th overall with respected offshore yachtsman, Richard Hudson as owner, in partnership with others. Hudson does a lot of racing out of his ‘local’, the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, and leaves town from time to time to do major offshore races, such as the Sydney Hobart and ARC races. In January, Pretty Woman took line honours in the Pittwater to Paradise (Southport) race and finished second overall. David Beak is joining the team for the 75th Sydney Hobart. David was the owner and skipper of Mr Beaks Ribs a previous winner of the Rolex Sydney Hobart race. Four of the crew are also graduates of the RPAYC Youth Development Program.
