Huntress

 

Huntress is a development of the Sydney 38 from the Australian Murray Burns Dovell stable.  Queenslander Brent Dowton took charge of his newly purchased Huntress late last year when the Sydney 39 cruiser/racer was sailed up from Sydney where previous owner, Philip Grove, raced her regularly out of the CYCA and up north, with wins at Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island Race Weeks.  Since his purchase, Dowton has sailed her to ninth overall in the RQYS’s Short Passage Race in September. The boat is skippered by experienced yachtswoman, Victoria Logan.
