George Martin skippered Flying Fish Arctos to PHS 12th overall in the 2019 race after Andrew Corless steered the Radford designed training vessel to PHS eighth overall in 2018.  Best results for the boat include a PHS overall win to win Division 2, beating all Division 1 yachts overall in 2017, with Alex Martin at the helm.  The yacht also won PHS in 2010, scored second in 2009 and third in 2012.  This snapshot of results is wonderful, as the crew typically consists of a mix of local experience and international trainees, all graduates of the Flying Fish sailing school.  The flagship yacht in the Flying Fish offshore training fleet, she is a strong and powerful cutter rigged yacht that was built for Don McIntyre to race around the world.  Drew Hulton-Smith helms this time, while crew member Steve Grellis will sail his 30th Sydney Hobart.
