Inukshuk is the re-named New Morning III, now in the hands of Robert Large whose name we know from Sydney Hobarts on another South Australian yacht, Enchantress. His co-pilot is fellow South Aussie yachtsman, Chris Riggs, who owned Helsal II and has vast sailing experience. This Northshore 38 is a new entry to the race and is set up for short-handed racing. In preparation for the Two-Handed division of the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, Large raced her in the RSAYS Short-Handed Series, and won the light-air second race. The name Inukshuk means ‘a structure of rough stones stacked in the form of a human figure’, traditionally used by Inuit people as a landmark or a commemorative sign and symbolises safety, hope and friendship – which resonates given the race and the world’s current Covid predicament.
