Reve skippered by Kevin Whelan lines up against this for her fourth Rolex Sydney Hobart after another solid season in PHS. This continues on from two back to back wins the 2016-2017 for the Noakes Sydney Gold Coast race. Reve placed 11th PHS in her maiden Rolex Sydney Hobart in 2016 and fifth PHS in last year’s race. Recently winning PHS in the Newcastle Bass Island race, Reve starts in good form for this year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart. Watch the tracker for the battle between Reve and Whelan's son James (on board the much bigger and possibly more comfortable Charlotte) as the family goes head-to-head for the PHS win.
