- The Yachts
In the 2019 race, Steven Capell’s elegant Swan 65 finished 106th overall in 75th race’s large fleet of 157 boats. The previous year, Eve was 41st overall, seventh in Division 3, third in ORCi Division 3 and second in the Corinthian division. Capell sailed her in the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart under the name of ‘Ugg Australia’ and finished 31st overall. She finished a good fifth and won Division 2 in the 2018 Ponant Sydney Noumea Yacht Race. Eve is a classic S&S Swan 65; the 35th of 40 yachts built by Nautor in the1970s and early 1980's. Launched in 1981 as UK registered ‘Cheetah of Hamble’, she then became the Italian registered ‘Kenta’ from whence Eve was imported to Australia by Will Vicars and took up residence in Sydney. Eve is contesting the CYCA’s Audi Centre Sydney Blue Water Pointscore, of which the Rolex Sydney Hobart is the final race. Won Division 2 of November’s Bird Island Race.
