Rush last headed south in 2015 and finished 24th overall to win Division 2, a great result for John Paterson and his crew from Victoria. Prior to that, the Farr 45 finished the Hobart in 2012 in 49th overall, but consequently retired from the 2013 race when a crew member broke his leg in gale force winds off the Tasmanian coast. Rush also contested the 2005 (30th overall), ‘06 (45th), ‘07 (19th), ‘08 (23rd) and ‘09 (18th) Hobarts. Rush is a regular in Victorian events and also contests other major regattas on the eastern seaboard. Rush was primarily created to compete on the International 45 foot circuit.
